The Christmas Note
Melissa has few possessions, little personality, and keeps to herself. One day, a local landlord who is looking for Melissa knocks on Gretchen's door for assistance. Melissa's mother has died and in the coming weeks the landlord needs Melissa to empty her mother's apartment. Gretchen reaches out and offers to help, but the apartment is a gut wrenching shamble of a home. There is little worth saving except for a few photos and a note that is discovered on the crate beside the bed. It is unfinished but in the two scribbled lines, Melissa discovers she has a brother and a sister that she never knew about. Even more shocking, she begins to uncover family secrets that show her who she really is.
The Christmas Note
In general, we like to keep things light-hearted at Christmas time. However, we can't ignore that many of us have had a difficult couple of years with illness, loss, uncertain employment, and isolation. With that in mind, here are some examples of Christmas greetings that offer notes of encouragement, including how to say Merry Christmas to someone who has lost a loved one.

Photo cards are great! The only drawback is that they leave little if any space to write. Try to order cards with a plain back, or at least a little blank space somewhere on the card, so you have space to write a personal note and sign your name(s). Or include an additional piece of paper with a personal note in the envelope with the photo card.
In a December 16 video, captioned "remember that one time my mom included ALL of the details of my messy divorce in our family Christmas letter? Because same," Kinney told viewers the family's 2022 card included an "immaculate" and "passive-aggressive" note detailing the end of her marriage.
"All seemed well; but unfortunately, it wasn't!" the note read, in part. "Long story short, Jake suddenly did not need nor want to be married any longer. He refused all suggestions of counseling, declared that he wanted a divorce, and began 'living as though he was single' (to put it kindly). Laura was blindsided and devastated."
"It has been hard watching someone we love so much go through such a painful time," the note went on, "but Mike and I are grateful that she is out of that toxic relationship, and we know that God will carry her through."
