The gift of the printed word
Christmas. Hannukah. Whatever holiday you celebrate, it is the time of gift giving.
We had one of those really fun jobs come into the print shop last week that will be a Christmas gift for the folks in a family of a friend of mine. I have known him and his wife for many years, and yet as I worked on this project I discovered that there was so much more to know!
Reading fifty-five years of annual Christmas letters - many people scoff at these when they receive them - was like looking into the very life of a family lived a year at a time. Precious memories of joy and sorrow, life and death, building up and moving on, and encouragement. This was a biography worth reading! And this family will be grateful that this printed archive has been saved and reproduced. It tells their story.
Think about that as you prepare for this holiday season. You have a story to share, too, and your family will be glad that you share it with them. My friend's family can hold that story in their hands, saving each page as they are turned.
The printed word. Always a good gift.
Thankss for sharing this
