We had a slow start to collecting cards this year. Our wall looked a little sad for the first half of the month. With all that this year has been, I thought this may be the year our friends decided to pull the plug on obligatory Christmas cards. And then they started to pile in and I couldn’t have been happier. I needed to see these faces this year. I needed to be reminded of the all the good that surrounds us and all the blessings we call friends and family.
