To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war and a time of peace...Ecclesiastes 3:8

Every year I say that I am going to start my Christmas Cards early but that doesn't often happen..

For me it is unheard
Of to be An early bird
Christmas season,
And the reason
Why I am late
Is that I procrastinate.

I bought my cards
At a discount store
Where I buy more
And save money
To send my regards.
Poetry by me, AJP

    This is a wonderful picture, Andrea. It causes me to reminisce about days gone by. I love your kitchen photos, and the warm, family oriented feeling I get just by looking at it. This is how it should be, Andrea!!!!!
