Countdown, Day 14: Sealing Wax



The use of sealing wax on envelopes comes once a year when I can hand-deliver Christmas cookies and greetings to neighbors
 or place a gift of appreciation in the mailbox for the postman.
 
 
It's a tricky process, though, involving fire for melting the wax and getting a proper little puddle of it
 in the right place before pressing the family monogram into it.

Ohhhh!
I want one of these!
I remember when you sent me those beautiful cards a while back. I used them to send thank you notes to people who were very kind and generous with us at my son's funeral. I wanted to respond with a lovely note card, not anything that the funeral home had provided.
Writing those notes on such beautiful paper gave me the lift I needed to carry on!

You do touch us in so many ways, and we are most thankful to know you.
Merry Christmas!
