Love in a Christmas Card

  • Posted on December 14, 2012 at 5:27 pm

Have just been pondering how truly global the love in my Christmas card is… not just because some of them will be travelling overseas, but because each card travels with

– the love from our family and our Christmas wishes
– the love from the postal service that delivers our letters
– the love from the card manufacturers upon which I wrote our wishes
– the love from the pen manufacturers which I used to write our greetings into the card
– the love from the envelope makers that allow us to send the card and newsletter to just the right people
– the love from the sticker manufacturers that made our address labels
– the love from the paper manufacturers & farmers upon which our Christmas newsletter is printed
– the love from the ink manufacturer which printed upon the paper
– the love from the printer manufacturer that converted the digital images to hard copy creations
– the love from the makers of my PC, both software and hardware components

and I could go on and on to include my desk, house, electricity, the food that gives me strength, the people in my life who give me stories to write about, and a myriad of other things that tie us all together… if we searched hard enough each one of us could probably find some way in which we actually contributed to the creation of the very cards that are sent to us by perceived others…

So the next Christmas card you receive, take a moment to ponder both the person who sent it to you, and all the other people who contributed to the gift of love arriving in the form of a small card in your letter box…

With blessings of love to you all. 🙂
