I’ve been working on my
annual sporadic Christmas letter. There’s a fine line between sharing the banner moments and bragging. Of course some of that is due to the perceptions of the reader, but sometimes those yearly letters are blatantly pompous. In an effort to keep mine as humble as I can I thought I’d share what I’ve written with you, my very good and honest friends, for your opinions before I send it out.
Dear Friends and Family,
How are you? I am perfect. My children are perfect. My husband is perfect. My marriage is perfect. My dog is perfect. My bank account is perfect. My home is Better Homes and Garden perfect.
My clothes are perfect. My hair is perfect. My weather is always perfect. My singing is perfect. My temperament is perfect. My parenting is perfect. My life is perfect.
May your 2010 be half as perfect as my 2009.
With all the love in my perfect heart,
So what do you think?
It's perfect. 😉
I like it!! May I borrow it? 😀
I think it's perfect.I'm struggling with my annual letter this year. It's hard to fit in a year's worth of info into one page!
Love it. But I'm feeling really inferior to Your Highness. (Snort! Giggle!)
oh, Jen, you have perfectly described my dilemma. If my grandkids weren't so perfectly adorable, I might have to give up the letters all together. LOL!!
Oh, made me think about my 2008 to 2009 New Year's letter…"F*#@ 2008! Bring on 2009!"
I'm glad I can find someone with whom I can FINALLY be myself. Purrfect, of course. 🙂
LOL!!! This is great, Jenster!!! My girlfriend's husband calls these "brag letters". You, and he, are both spot on. And yet, I keep sending them out!!! 🙂
Well, I think that it's quite…perfect!!!! (smile!)
So, how much is half of perfect?
ROFL! Perfect!My mom always says tongue-in-cheek, "Hey, it's not bragging if it's the truth", lol.
Love this! If I hadn't already sent out my cards (wihtout the yearly letter!) I would have used yours!
Jen, Just saw this on the Jay Leno show and it made me think of your perfect Christmas letter. Hope you enjoy!Tara Watson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZRh9QmUdnE
