Holiday Cheer

How do you spread holiday cheer? Do you make an effort to smile at that person in the grocery store that's about ready to ram into you with their cart? How about letting in that car stuck in the right lane with their left turn signal blinking?

I guess for me, I try to be more patient. And smile more. That's always a big one. People are in such a rush right now that sometimes, an extra smile will go a long way to making them feel a bit less stressed.

And here's how I'm spreading holiday cheer to you - this adorable homemade e-card. My mother sent it to me last night and my daughter absolutely loved it. I hope you will, too!


  1. I tend to do the same as you - try to be more patient and smile a lot at everyone, especially the overworked store clerks!

    Off to see the e-card now. Oh, and glad to see you can still post comments on my blog!!

  2. My children loved the card, too! Thanks for sharing, Melissa. :)

    And I smile. Lots. And wear my santa toque.

  3. I smile too. I go around the supermarkets grinning like a lunatic. Usually works ;)

  4. I loved that card! So cute.

    I try to be nicer, more patient, like you said. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Ha ha ha.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. I smile more and speak to strangers (which normally, such a no-no for me, lol)--especially the frazzled ones. Lovely card :)

  6. It's amazing how much a smile can do, isn't it?


I love to hear from you!
