Christmas Cards... Yay!
He's what I'd call somewhat of a free bird- he flew the coup early on and never looked back. We actually got to stop and see him a couple years ago on our way thru to see another family member. But other than the standard birthday & Christmas card I don't ever write to him. So I thought this would be a nice surprise as an out-of-the-blue card 'just to say hello'.
Even though we don't see him that often, he still means a lot to us. My 5 year old, who I'm surprised even remembers him, every so often will say she wishes she could see her uncle again. That just melts my heart to hear her say stuff like that.
So the card is on it's way, 800 miles to go, and I'm sure I'll receive a nice phone call after he gets it. It's always good to re-connect with family and friends, just to let them know you care and are thinking about them.
Missing you lots bro'...
