Throughout these years that Lee wasn’t home, I tried to send Christmas cards. I wasn’t always very motivated.
Every year they were only a photo of James. My friends who didn’t know didn’t need to know, so I sent cards with no letter.
Sometimes I didn’t get them out. Sometimes I did.
This year choosing cards and mailing them out was a joy. I used my Shutterfly credit for blogging about their cards.
Sending a card with a family photo blessed me more than I can express.
A man at church said, “That is a lovely photo on your Christmas card.” I said, “Yes, it’s the first time in years we could take a family photo.”
He said, “That’s what I meant when I said lovely.”
He’s right. It’s so lovely and wonderful all at the same time.
Thank you, Lord.
