Welcome to Twofer Tuesday. This is a quick post where I share two thoughts.
Did you see where Miep Gies recently passed away? She was one of the people who helped hide Anne Frank and she is the one who saved Anne's diary. She was 100 years old and always insisted that she wasn't a hero. She said that she did what was right and what she had to do. She was an ordinary person who did an extraordinary thing. Just like the passengers on the Christmas Day flight to Detroit who subdued the bomber. Do you know any ordinary people who have been heroes?
All of my Christmas decorations are down and put away - except for the pile of Christmas cards. I always wonder what to do with them. I usually throw them out - but always feel so guilty. I really feel guilty about the photo cards but I do receive photo cards from people that I am not that close to. Am I obligated to display their kids in my house? What do you think? What do you do with your Christmas cards? Did you notice that there seemed to be a lot of glittery cards this year? A vast majority of the ones I received sparkled in some manner. Also, when I write out my cards every year, there are a few people that I pause over and think "Do I really need to send them a card?". You know the people I mean, you were casual friends 20 years ago and haven't seen them since. If the truth be told, you only think of them twice a year - when you address their card and when you receive one from them. I always think "If I don't get a card from them, I will simply drop them from my list." Of course, they are ALWAYS one of the first cards that I receive so they stay on the list. The people you don't get cards from are usually family members that would be upset if they found out you still sent cards but left them off.
PS for Sue: Yesterday, I "roasted" a chicken in the crock pot. YUMMIE! Today, I am using the leftover chicken and making a chicken noodle soup in the crock pot. One of my resolutions this year was to use my crock pot an average of once a week.
Here's to quick little posts.
