Thankful Thursday: Christmas Pictures

No, not my Christmas pictures - YOURS!

In other words: What happens to your Christmas picture after it arrives in my mailbox?

A few years ago, I decided it would be fun to start a Christmas scrapbook of all the fun holiday photo cards I received in the mail. Only I wasn't quite satisfied with that. Why? Because to put all the photos in a scrapbook means that while well-preserved, I don't get as much enjoyment out of them.

Now, instead of immediately putting them into an album, the year's pictures enjoy a long layover on a bulletin board before they reach their final destination. I've just finished updating the bulletin board, and will spend the next 11-12 months enjoying it. As for the stack of photos that was just removed to make room? Better get scrappin'!

So this week, I'm thankful for the photos I will now enjoy all year, and thankful for what they represent: friends and family I'm blessed to have in my life.
