Organize your addresses now before the Christmas rush

It’s not too early to organize your addresses for your Christmas cards. It’s the beginning of October and in no time at all it will be late November.  It’s going to take a little time contacting people that have moved during the last year.

I said a little prayer for those families that are homeless and have...
