The Christmas cards have been arriving, although slowly. In years past I might find a stack in my mailbox each day; now one or two trickle in. Some days there are none. It’s my fault. I don’t send as many as I used to. Many of those to whom I sent cards have died or become too infirm to make the effort.
A couple of cards came with long letters detailing the past year. I have never been a Christmas letter writer feeling that to be a bit self-indulgent. Instead, I put it all here, on my blog!
The best cards came from the kids at the school where I am serving. Two classes even made books for me with their notes inside.
