I must confess that I am not quite certain what a Blogland Christmas looks like since this is my first one. I am reasonably certain that it would be fairly diverse. Why it might not even be Christmas for some. It could be another holiday or none at all. Even so, I would like to take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate and to say thank you to the rest of you. Thanks for reading and thanks for the comments, suggestions, and most of all the grins.
I promised you one more Christmas card yesterday and I am going to stick to my word. I sorted through all the ones I have not yet shared and picked a special one that says something that I think is appropriate for this time of year – the holidays, the end of one year, and the beginning of another and most of all - friendship.
Here is the photo from the card that is dated 2004:
and here is the text:
A thousand words. A thousand words. Isn’t that the going rate for a picture? Where would you start with this one? Do you see what I see? Do you see big and small? Short and tall? Fluffy and plump? Slim and trim? Do you see what I see? Do you see black and white? And brown and gold? Do you see snow and trees and falling flakes in the background? Do you see what I see? That shapes and sizes and colors and all these things matter very little. Do you see what I see? Do you see what each bear holds in his paw? Look again. Do you see what I see? That a thousands words can be reduced to only three? Love one another.
With all the very warmest wishes
from my family and me to you and yours
