As I tear open the envelope I am greeted by pictures of weddings, vacations, babies and hobbies. Images have been selected with care in an attempt to capture the best parts of the year.
Perhaps the simplicity of the message has been enhanced by the migration away from specific holiday salutations. Very few cards we receive say Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Happy New Year. Instead, pictures are captioned by a “mindful” statement such as family, joy or peace.As I glance toward my card collection I am reminded daily during December to live well, laugh often and be thankful. That’s a holiday sentiment worth embracing- permission to Be.
