Merry Christmas! I want to share with you one of my favorite things I received this year for Christmas. It was a letter emailed to my sisters and myself written by my Daddy. Do you think people have lost the knack for writing a letter? I suppose with the invention of the computer, pen and paper are too much trouble. But, my Daddy can write a good letter!!! Whether it be pen to paper or fingers to keyboard, my Daddy can write!!! He doesn't read my blog, but my mother does. So, mother, please tell Daddy how much I loved his Dear Santa letter. Can't wait for more.
I hope he doesn't mind. I have posted the letter below.
I have been a good boy all year long. Well, maybe a couple of times I have fallen short. For example, just this week I've commented to myself how well I have avoided spilling coffee on the carpet. Due to my early morning rising and a very good spot remover, I have been able to keep my tiny tiny, and I mean little spills to myself. Somehow, I think she knows but she is too good to fuss at me.
Santa, all I wish for is the ability to be even more thankful for such a wonderful wife, four lovely daughters and a passel of grandchildren and great... (Oh well, I can be thankful in anticipation, can't I?)
I sincerely hope all is well with you all and that you and your family enjoy all of the Lord's blessings during this holiday season and every day of the year.
Motto for today: In all of life's journeys, go as far as you can and then you can see further.
