Holiday cards

I finished writing and addressing my holiday cards last night and placed them in the mailbox this morning.

I didn't write as many personal notes inside them this year, as I was feeling the pressure to get them into the mail so they'd be delivered before Christmas. For some reason I got a later start this year than most. But I did write a little note on some, and I always write their names above the printed sentiment and sign our names below it. Sometimes I'll underline a word in the printed sentiment so they think of it as coming directly from my mouth.

"Thinking of you and wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a happy and prosperous new year!" seems much more heartfelt when you underline the word 'wonderful', don't you think?


Ironically, this year my company shipped me and the other remote employees a box of holiday cards with our company name printed on the inside and asked us to address and send them out to our clients. Normally I'd find this a highly enjoyable activity and a nice brake from my typical day. Only this year I was kind of struggling to get my personal holiday cards out on time so I did not have the same 'joy' about addressing and sending out a dozen or two more for the company. But I took some time today and did it anyway. The clients should enjoy the holiday greetings.

I hope all you dear readers are enjoying the holiday season.

You're better than me. I haven't sent out cards in years. Too much going on at this time of year. I need to manage my time a little bit better. Oy...

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday.
