Postcard Friendship Friday... A Christmas Welcome

a Christmas Welcome.  My friend Lois gifted me a little box of these wonderful cards, some are more than 100years old.  I particularly like the sentiments, so "different" from today's thoughts. At our home, my Mother's home, when we set the table on Christmas Eve, there was always and extra setting at the table for an unexpected/welcome guest, so this is a particularly appropriate card for me.

I agree, poetry on Christmas cards seems to have vanished.

I adore these precious old cards. How beautiful. I am so sorry to hear about your sister's illness, dear Irene. I promise I will pray for her, and for you. xoxo Merry Christmas

I just read what Jenny wrote about your sister. I, too will pray for her. My sisters are very dear to me--I know you must love her very much. ((hugs)) Lots of love and prayers headed her way and yours.
