Chocolate star cookies and handwritten cards.
It’s a rare thing today to recieve a handwritten letter or even a birthday card. Except over Christmas. I’ve just received my first card for this season and it was with pure excitement that I tore open the envelope, all the time guessing the sender. What a further delight it was to recognize the personal artwork on the card! Receiving this first very personal handpainted card, had me digging out some cards myself . They may not be in time for Christmas, but the timeless message will be the same: “I care and you are in my thoughts. May you experience exuberant moments. Love. Ronell”
And of course you can’t write cards without a cheekful of cookies, a coffee, some far off music and why not a flickering candle to accompany your reminiscing message.
