I think I'm going to send my father a Christmas card. I thought about including a picture, but maybe that's too much. I'm not going to write much, and I'm not going to try to make him feel guilty for not writing. I think I just want to let him know I'm not going anywhere. Just because I haven't pestered him these past few months, doesn't mean I've forgotten him. I don't know if this is too little or too much. I still intend to show up on his doorstep at some point (maybe this coming spring?) if he doesn't write me back. But I figured keeping open that line of communication would at least keep me on his mind. I'm hoping that repeated reminders will weigh on him to the point where he might be open to at least a brief conversation or some such.
That's me, the perpetual optimist. *sigh*
