Holiday Card Wisdom

I love getting holiday cards in the mail. I string them over the kitchen sink and they never fail to make me smile. holiday compilation

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.

The photos convey simply and elegantly the important things in life –  relationships, health, laughter and peace. They are a daily reminder to pursue life with joy.live well

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.wishing you peaceAs 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.
