Checking the mail each day use to be an exciting event – especially as a child. Would there be a card or letter from Grandma, a birthday invitation, a thank you note or a letter from a friend that had moved away?
Today so much of our correspondence is done via email, fax, cell phone, blackberry etc. Even my mom who lives two blocks away will email me to ask me a question! Invitations come electronically via E-vite and I now correspond with friends who have moved away via their blogs or emails. There are lots of advantages to electronic correspondence and I can’t imagine living without it.
It seems the only things I find when I check the mail these day are bills (although a lot of those come electronically too) or junk mail!
But this weekend when I checked the mail there was Happy Mail! There were TWO surprise packages waiting for me! Yes , two!
The first package was from my sweet friend Deb in Michigan. She and I are kindred spirits and have a lot of things in common – one of which is our love for shoes.
The inside of the cute card with all the shoes on the front said the following….
“Clean living paid off, and Leslie ended up going to Heaven.”
I am convinced heaven is full of beautiful shoes – that don’t hurt your feet!
The cute luggage tag said “The journey of a thousand miles begins with cute shoes.”
And the other shoe is actually an emery board – how cute is that!!
Thank you Deb for bringing a smile to my face – love ya girl!
The second piece of Happy Mail was a package from one of you! Karen, one of my blog readers, sent me this thoughtful and fun gift after reading my post on Words of Inspiration
Create is one of my favorite words – those of you who know me understand! This new word of inspiration will be sitting next to me on my desk. Thank you Karen for your kindness and thoughtfulness.
Can you think of someone who deserves some Happy Mail this week -a fun little surprise or a few kind words to brighten their day? Think Happy Mail!
