To push the envelope means to approach, exceed, or even extend the limits of what is considered possible or permissible in any context.
It just isn't possible to send a personal hand-written, stamped envelope, containing a colourful handmade Christmas Card to everybody I know and love. I have many friends on Facebook, or who read the blog, some who I know well, and care about, and some I don't really 'know' but who read and comment and are somehow a special part of my life.
I am truly grateful to you all, my friends, for your encouragement, for your informative and challenging words, for sharing the laughter and the tears of life, for just being there. But I genuinely cannot afford the time or the money involved in cards, envelopes, and stamps. So please accept this greeting, from our home to yours. May you know peace in your hearts this Christmastide, and joy in the year ahead. Above all, may you feel love surrounding you.With much love to you, and those you hold dear - Ang and Bob
