I Love this Time of Year for this Reason

Yes - my fridge. It's time for the yearly update. That doesn't mean it's when all the outdated and molding items get removed, although that's a fabulous idea, it's when we start to get new family photos in the mail with some of the Christmas cards. The faces of loved ones that have been my constant companions for the past year or sometimes more, are replaced with the kids looking a little older, or new babies added to the family, or a few more grey hairs. There are some photos I have loved that have been there for many years, they have sticky spills and finger prints on them, but the faces have welcomed me on early mornings, or snack attacks, or which each meal that has come and gone through this kitchen. I sometimes see clean fridges in other people's homes, and like the idea for a moment, but then think I could not do without the love I know has come from each special person smiling at me. And I think of the prayers I have prayed for you as I've looked at your eyes on my fridge. So keep sending or we both miss out :)

My card is on the way. If you don't get it, check that dumpster in Vancouver.
