Do you remember the segment on Sesame Street called "One of These Things Is Not Like the Other"? That is exactly what I thought when I looked at the anniversary cards that my parents had on display on their counter this weekend. I think it's great that so many people showered my parents with lovely cards for their 55th wedding anniversary. However, isn't is pathetic that my own parents have to buy cards instead of having a plethora of handmade cards to choose from? It's the old adage...the shoemaker's kids never have shoes.
Empty-nesthood is just around the corner for us. Maybe then I can finally accomplish all the things on my to-do list, like making sure my own family members have a stock of handmade cards at their disposal for any occasion. Good idea, right?
