The Card that Keeps on Giving

Talk about recycled cards. Take a look at this one! When I was a young whippersnapper in college, I sent this card to my dad. Who knew it would have such a long life?

Notice my dad took the advice on the inside of the card and sent it to me the next year. In fact, we managed to send it back and forth over a period of twenty-five years. As we moved to different places, the card moved along with us – Illinois, Alabama, Wisconsin, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. It ended up in Florida where I found it in one of my dad’s drawers after he passed away. I guess you might say he sent it to me one last time.

Whenever I read what we wrote to one another, it never fails to put a smile on my face. This card keeps recycling itself through my life, and it keeps on giving and giving.

“When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things – not the great occasions – give off the greatest glow of happiness.”  ~Bob Hope

Send someone you love a special card today. (This is not a Hallmark commercial!)
