Just as I opened a card last week and felt my heart sink into my toes, the exact opposite happened today. I opened this card just now and knew it was from a True Friend.
I know better by now than to look for love where it hasn’t been found; still I hoped. But, God gives us a double measure in some areas of our lives while others lie barren.
The gifts of Christmas are all around us, not always wrapped in paper and bows, but in a brilliant smile from a sales person. A song from the man ringing his bell before the Salvation Army bucket. A wave from the person you let cut in front of you during heavy traffic.
And, just the right words received on a card from a very special friend.
Merry Christmas to you all.
