Twitter Surprise

Many years ago I met a wonderful young lady at church. Her name is Veronica Cramer. She attended high school with me too, though she was a couple years younger than me. One of the things that impressed me about her was her gratitude. She loves sending greeting cards, and my family and I receive numerous cards from her through the year. She has been an inspiration to me. I tried sending out Christmas cards regularly, but have not done very well in recent years.

I found a new "follower" on Twitter recently. She lives in Hawaii and was interested in my family name. We chatted about greeting cards a bit. She had ordered some custom made cards that she planned to send to special friends and family. After our conversation she arranged to get our address from my wife. I am very pleased to find that we received a beautiful Christmas card from her today. I'm including a scan of the front for your pleasure. "Mele Kalikimaka" means Merry Christmas in Hawaiian. Thank you @ucsmiles!

Yes, and everytime I see the card I start singing that song.
