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..

It is unheard
Of for me
To be
An early bird
Christmas season,
But the reason
I end up late
Is that I procrastinate.
I bought my cards
At a discount store
Where I buy more
And save money
To send my regards.

    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!!!!!
