My Last Christmas as the Mail Lady
I will be giving up work in July so this is my last Christmas as a rural mail lady and it has been wonderful and I will miss it dreadfully I know that.
I will try to post at least once a week with all the wonderful things I see for the next 6 months.Tell about the beautiful people who have made me part of their family in some cases and the shoulder to cry on for others and just the lady who turns up at the same time every day with the paper.
It is a special time for those isolated just as it is for us "townies" so here are a few of the decorated places.
This is the milkcan mailbox that becomes a reindeer every year,just love him!
This house belongs to an Uncle Pete who always has his great nephew Jimmy with him and this year a new little one to join in,the children and family live in a home you can't see from the road so all the family mail goes in this one box.
May your new year be peaceful and abundant with your needs, thoughts to all those who are having a sad time, for us it is one of our Cackle Club girls loosing her lovely 95 Mum yesterday,she will leave nothing but happy memories.Another family suddenly lost a wonderful father/husband and brother to many this week so Christmas will be hard for them so we need to remember how blessed we are.
Mum turned 93 2 weeks ago,I hope she survives the onslaught ,she is a trooper and although her patience is limited these days I am sure she will love it all.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,remember to keep Christ in your Christmas as that is what it is all about,I do not know about other countries but every day over here they are trying to change this.
