I have sent a card for you to the address in Canada which your mom provided for my correspondence with you. I also sent an identical card to your mother's friend in Oxford, hoping him to ensure it is passed to you.
I took a copy to put here on the blog in case neither of the cards were passed to you. As the photo is not as clear as I would have liked it to be, I have typed below what I wrote on your card.....
Christmas is an opportunity to remind ourselves that we are here for a cause greater than our own needs and wants. What we do for ourselves may be remembered troughout our lives by those who know us but what we do for others will enter history and be remembered troughout eternity by all the humanity.
I wish for your christmas to be overwhelmed with beautiful moments and happy memories for you to joyfully remember throughout the coming year and for many many years to come.
I wish for you a wonderful new year filled with happiness & prosperity, surrounded by love, peace and hope.
Every day ends with a night full of twinkeling stars, each passing along with the mission to remind you that wherever you go, you have a father who loves you.
"May the light of the angels guide you and the Lord's blessing shelter you on Christmas and always."
Your dad - 2012
