The "Holidays" are upon us; Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is bearing down with New Year's right behind.
I'm not sending out my Christmas letter this year, I'm not in the writing mood. I usually write about what is happening in our family and what God is teaching me. It isn't that I don't have much to write, I just don't quite know how to put a spin on it that would make it palatable for a Christmas letter. I've done my darndest to come up with some tongue in cheek, glibe way of sharing our year with you but I couldn't figure out how to do it. I checked the internet for suggestions, and I read yesterday that Christmas letters shouldn't contain bad news. And I quote:
"No one wants to hear your cancer is back, your children are divorced or in prison, your spouse is STILL unemployed, and your on welfare or foodstamps, or such."
So I'm not sending letters. Add to that postage is climbing, and it isn't taking much for me to just say forget it.
Let's just say Merry Christmas! and Happy New Year! and be done with it, shall we?
