Christmas in January

What joy! I had a Christmas in January moment today and it was wonderful. All of my held and forwarded mail finally came and I had a big old stack of Christmas cards and two, count 'em, TWO of my very favorite postcard stories by Jack Cobb. It was so amazing to get them all at a time where I could truly take the time to appreciate them -- and to see them all at once in a stack, well it made my heart swell at least three sizes:) Usually when Christmas cards come in the flurry of the season when you're worrying about the cards YOU still have to send and the presents you have to buy and the travel plans you have to make... they can get lost, or just glanced over. But today I luxuriated in them...took in each smiling face, drank in each wish for "Love" and "Merry merry", and just made sure to say a little prayer of thanks for each person in my life that I am lucky to call my friend. Thank you all for the postal hugs:)
