Every year I put together a picture and newsletter for our friends and family...it just so happens that being Pastors of a church means a have a lot of friends and family. So, it becomes a huge process (picking the pictures, printing them, writing the newsletter, printing it, buying envelopes and stamps, addressing or handing out the envelopes...whew!) It might sound like I'm complaining but, I actually love giving and receiving pictures and letters. There are tons of people that only hear from us once a year and I'm still not wanting to let go of those friendships...it's the perfect way to catch them up! AND whether It's people I see all the time or not, it's a great way to have their faces on my fridge! It's a great tradition! Lots of work...but worth it!
Do you put together a Christmas card? How big is your list? And when (realistically) does it actually get into the mail?
