"Mischievous Kittens" ornament

While December is a bad month for me, I have tried to stay positive by sending mail.

The past couple of years, my friend, Gennie, has done an ornament exchange. I’ve gotten a few beauties over the years: A penguin ornament and a “Squeaky Clean” Snowbabies. Yesterday, I got my ornament from the exchange – the kitten on the laptop above.

I was able to get Christmas cards out this year. So far, I have received 5 back.

I signed up for the Holiday Card Exchange on Reddit Gifts. I sent a complete stranger a little package of goodies. I just felt like being in a giving mood. Also, I signed up for the Random Acts of Cards exchange. I wish it could have been more than a card for them, but I’m flat broke at the moment. (Hi anyone looking up information for peachy921 from Reddit!) Then, someone posted about loneliness at this time of year and I sent a card to them as well. The situation made me think of how I felt after one of the Ashley Wilkeses in my life did to me. No one deserves to feel that way.

And knowing how some of my other friends have been feeling, I sent them a random postcard. I also sent some of their kids random postcards, too.

I can only hope my cards and postcards this month bring a smile to someone.  We all deserve a smile.

    Cute ornament, my cat was just doing that a few minutes ago.

    That’s great you are reaching out to help others this season who are in need, very nice. I hope it is therapeutic for you as well. 🙂
