Christmas is here…

Yes, it’s Christmas 2016…

Christmas all over the world

…and…

For unto us a child is born

I received a few Christmas cards this year, a lovely one from my very dear friends who were in New Zealand before…

…but have relocated elsewhere and another one, Hallmark no less, from my cousin and her hubby and family in Perth Australia…

…and I also got one from Phong Hong along with the lovely stuff that she sent all the way from KL, one from my uncle and his family when they were here recently and another one from my old friend in Adelaide who also sent me a whole lot of lovely things from Down Under

More greeting cards

…and this one made it just in time – from my cousin and his family in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, a Hallmark card too…

From Georgie, KK

I love the message on the card and that “diamond” stud stuck onto the star sure is a lovely touch indeed.

So there you are – six altogether, but then again, I did not send that many this year – mostly to members of my immediate family and I just sent those that I received from the Mouth & Foot Artists – I did pay for them, of course but I did not go out to buy any this year. Come to think of it, I am not sure if I can find any really nice ones around town, now that sending Christmas greeting cards is becoming a thing of the past.

I am sending one less this year as my aunt, my mum’s youngest sister, one much loved and so dearly missed especially on special occasions such as this, passed away suddenly quite recently and that was why I flew over to Kuching – to pay my last respects. I would send her a card without fail every year for as long as I can remember. That is why at this time of year, our thoughts also go to those we have loved dearly and have gone before us and it would be just as important that we appreciate all that are with us as much as we can, never mind whether we did send a card or a present or not – a little prayer that God will bless us all on this joyous day and and every day in the year ahead would mean a lot more, I’m sure.

A Blessed Christmas to one and all. Joy to the world!
