Christmas Cards
Written December 4, 2021

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


Do you send Christmas cards...
2021 she was told many do not...
This is just something to think about...

Christmas is an emotional time...
Not just for a few people...
But for most people...
For many different reasons...

When a card arrives from a former neighbor...
Or a friend who has moved...
Good memories flood into the heart...
First you realize you are not forgotten...
Forgotten in this busy world...
The 2021 world of busy people...

Then you think about the person...
You think about the good memories...
You remember why you miss them...
You smile as you leave the mail box...
They are important to you...
Yes and you must be important to them...

Now that is a real Christmas gift...
You know you have touched someone's life...
You have made a difference...
They have made a difference in your life...
That is important to you both...

Now people you see all the time know...
Know you love them...
But people who are missing in your daily life...
These are people you miss...
A Christmas card can keep them close...
A Christmas card is a connection...

No matter the cost of the card...
Fancy or plain...
Expensive or cheap...
The smile is the same...
58 cent stamp...
But what is that smile worth...

This is just a thought...
But her cards are in the mail...
She hopes her Christmas card list will...
Will always be full...
Full of family, friends and good memories...

More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and she now makes her home in Aiken, S.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
