“It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.”
~W. T. Ellis
Undoubtedly the holiday wishes will begin rolling in through the mailbox soon, if they haven’t done so already. Maximize the joy of cards by incorporating them into your home decorating.
My favorite two ways to enjoy holiday cards:
Hang an evergreen garland to display cards: Paint clothespins in red and green and attach cards to the garland as they arrive.
Create your own Christmas book: I have created a Christmas book featuring the holiday cards we receive. After enjoying the cards, I mount each “front” card onto a page of cardstock or thick paper.
Sometimes I collage several cards together. Below the cards, I write down who sent it and include a Christmas quote. You could also use Christmas cards as backgrounds in scrap booking your holiday memories. For quote ideas, try these websites:
Your Turn: Choose an “out-of-the-box” way to enjoy your cards throughout the season.
Today’s Affirmation: I cherish and appreciate every gesture of kindness I receive.
Your Two Cents: Your thoughts and feedback are what motivate me to create the Good Morning messages. Share your thoughts on today’s message, browse past messages, or read what others are thinking by clicking here.
And as always, don’t forget to start your day with a heartfelt: “Something great is going to happen today… I can’t wait to see what it is!”
And when ending your day ask yourself:
“What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?”
