A Year's Supply of Cards

You could always tell which card came from my grandparents.  It was an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" envelope with cute pictures on it and your name printed on the envelope.  As indicated on the back of the card, it was made with love by my grandma using her Christian greeting card program.  It was always personalized and included a Bible verse written by my grandpa.  Of course, there is always a $20 bill taped inside or a check at Christmas time. 

Shortly after my grandma went to be with her Lord in June, Grandpa asked me to make cards for him to send everyone on their birthdays and anniversaries.  At first it felt awkward to take on her task.  After some time, I felt honored.  He could have purchased cards at the store or learned to navigate the program.  Instead he chose me to carry on her task of sharing his sentiments with loved ones.  I attacked the task with great determination and have almost finished all of the cards, nearly 25 in all.  Just in time to begin Christmas cards...
