Opening the mailbox, I peek inside, hoping for the seasonal item that I adore, a holiday card. This time of year as we skip to the mailbox there are more than just bills and advertisements, there are notes and photos and messages of love and good tidings. Someone took a moment out of their busy day to scribble your address and send you a message of love for the season. That is indeed special.
Each year I give you my postal address. I invite you to send me a card and I shall do the same to you. Such a beautiful tradition, Christmas cards. Some of these cards have turned into pen pals that I have had and adored for years. It makes it fun to go to the mailbox all year round if a hand scribed letter should be delivered. If you would like to exchange letters, please include one!
A letter in someone’s stocking or sent via post simply stating all of the things you love and honor them for can bring an unexpected twist to someone’s day, or life. We do not hear enough the things that are positive. Consider in your gift giving taking the time to write someone a letter. It would surely mean more than any tchotchke that you could come across.
In the age of quick messages via media, a hand written letter, note, or Yuletide card is indeed fine. The carrier walked away with a large stack of mine. I hope to hear from you!
