Although it’s been said many times, many ways…..



Merry Christmas to you.

At Christmas in 1967 I was on my own for the first time and was excited to send cards with only my name on them! (It’s amazing how little it took to feel excited about Christmas then!) I wanted to say something positive, in spite of all the terrible things that were happening all over the world and how much political division there was in this country.  I wrote:

May you have the audacity to be happy in these troubled times!

That message still applies. Merry Christmas to all of you. Thank you for the gift of your friendship, support or just the idle curiosity that brings you to this site!

  1. I was going to wait until midnight and be the first one to wish you Merry Christmas, but I think I’m going to get to go home early, so….Merry Christmas! I love what you wrote on cards in 1967. It sounds just like you! Hope you have a great Christmas. D.

  2. That’s another great picture of your Granddog. She’d have our little Yorkie for Christmas lunch!

    Wishing you and yours the best this year. You’ve been a great friend to Denise, Phyllis and me. M.

  4. What a great thought on your 1967 cards…and how true still today. I can almost picture you then and I’m sure you were ready to take on the world! And, from what I can tell, you did. Through the new year and beyond we’ll pray for God’s richest blessings on you. Don R. and family.
