Brag Letter

This is the time of year when we start getting those lengthy inserts in the Christmas cards, detailing the highlights of our friends and families past year. Reading them can seem like a test of our forbearance; the writers go on and on, assuming we are thrilled by every detail of little Clotto's pre-K art project and the Branson vacation. Or sometimes they mention all the wonderful, positive things going on in their lives; promotions, marriages, new babies and such.

Never have I written one of these letters, but this year, for the first time, I will mention some of the blessings we have been fortunate to receive:

Gentle readers, you may think these activities blessed others, and you would be right. But these things blessed us more. Forgive me if I regard these as the really noteworthy accomplishments for the family in the past year.

This is terrific, Mike. What a difference it would make in people's lives if each person/family would do such an inventory on an annual basis. I have a feeling that such an exercise would change one's whole perspective on life. Thanks.
Yours is the best 'year-in-review' letter I've read.

Thanks for sharing it with us and thanks even more for encouraging the rest of us to reflect on what we did and didn't get around to in 2006.

I think most of us have more in the 'didn't get around to' column.

I'd like to be able to write this kind of letter in 2007.

Have a blessed Christmas and a productive New Year.
I've had fun in Branson! Some of the Branson hotels have great vacation packages.
