Do you save your Christmas cards? Well I do and I'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing. By the looks of this pile maybe a bad thing. You know I have no clue how old some of these are either.At first I considered trashing them and then I thought maybe I could cut some of the cute pictures out and recycle into something useful. I thought maybe a Christmas collage or just make up some new cards. Sounds like great ideas, right?Well, if you are thinking about doing this one word of advice, DON'T open and read them first. If you do, trust me, you will NOT throw any of them away.
Now I have to admit as I was reading each and every one, some were signed by people that I don't even remember. Isn't that embarrassing to admit? Oh my goodness I am really getting old or these cards are one...... I think I'll go with my second thought!
Anywho since I was bad and read them I didn't want to toss any so I went back through them and deleted my pile by maybe 20, okay maybe 15 but who's counting?
As I was reading them I came across one that I thought would be great to share. It offers some uplifting thoughts for our holiday season. I hope you enjoy! Luckily I do know who this one is from.All I Need to Know About Life I Learned From a Snowman...............

This card came from my niece Cortney and her hubbie Ryan. I have no idea how long I have had it. So thanks Cort! Who knew snowmen were so smart?
