I have a small number of very close and special friends, who send me Christmas presents. I am a very lucky man in that respect. I am told ‘friendship works both ways’ – basically you reap what you sow. I have always put a good deal of effort into my friendships and I am very blessed to know some truly terrific people. This 25th December I received another beautifully wrapped bundle of gifts, which included a purple jumper, a carved giraffe figurine, giraffe stationery (I am fond of giraffes) and some beautifully scented candles, amongst other things.
On Christmas Day (I like to be on the ball) I had my delicious luncheon made by my mother, Carole, and immediately after doing the washing-up, I started making the thank you cards to send to my friends and family. I had some coloured card and started sketching out a few ideas that would not be too time consuming. I only had about 2-hours to complete and write out fifteen cards! I also tried to make sure that the cards could easily be personalised. I did a few different designs, to keep me interested and also changed colours for a bit of variety.
As soon as the Post Office was open, I darted down to buy some stamps and post my thank you cards…hoping that they would not get too caught-up in the late Christmas post. I have already received some nice text messages saying thank you for the personalised cards. This could start a contagious ‘wave of gratitude’ and don’t you think that would be simply wonderful?
I will conclude this blog post by saying “thank you to you” for taking the time to read my posts this year…it is most appreciated…
