Ah, Christmas time is a time when I notice transitions...things that have changed, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worst...This year our David is hosting Christmas dinner tomorrow for us with his friend Ashley in their new home. His life has changed dramatically for the better in the past few years, for sure :). Alice is busily making pierogies and cabbage soup, but they’ll only be us three (Alice, myself and Joanna) for the repast….I remember when we’d sit twelve or so. Transitions and changes. This year, due to a data loss, I decided to “pull the plug” on our annual Christmas card sending. MOST of the people on our list we talk to by email or interact on Facebook….but there are some that do not do facebook, do not do e-mail..and the annual Christmas card is the only contact we have with them. They are mostly former neighbors and elderly. We’ve responded to all Christmas cards with a note that we’re not doing them anymore, and asked them to check in with us on the Blog or FB . Hope springs eternal!
