A-Z of my year

vegetable-graffiti-letters-a-z

At this time of year my cousin sends me an A-Z of her year on a long slip of bright yellow paper inserted in a Christmas card. It is lovely to receive and in just a minute or so I have a very good idea of what her year has entailed and what her numerous interests are. This is a very good way of quickly reflecting on the year, what has been done, what has been achieved and more importantly what has been valued. It surprises me that I have done more than I would have realised had I not gone through this process.

    Thank you Frances. It’s quite fun to do and some of the letters are hard 🙂

    I love it too (and not just because I’m so happy to see me on it). 😉
