First Christmas Letter

Karl and I sponsor a child with Compassion International. He is four years old and lives with his family in Mexico. We received a form to write a Christmas letter, to add to our gift online. This week we wrote a short note, to say Merry Christmas to the child and his family. Translation takes time, and then the delivery of letters.

We also correspond through email at Compassion International. We have worked with them for years, and have also sponsored children in Kenya and Peru. It is also possible to help without being a sponsor. Their commitment is to make sure every child in their program receives a Christmas gift, whether or not they have a sponsor.

I am also thinking a lot about veterans, including my father and others in our families.

Haiku Photos at Home

These are more photos from my archives to share again. As I type, I think of haiku. A smaller form – or space – can lead to new ideas.

I read a lot, sometimes aloud. Many authors. Then perhaps I am more likely to think of a better word for a small poem.

The news, and then I see a cardinal in the yard. Daffodils and daylilies are beginning to grow, the early beginnings of new green.

These photos include treasures from thrift stores. I call some of my photos HAIKU PHOTOS.
