With today’s instant avenues of communication, we don’t use postage stamps like we used to. But this new world of Covid-19 and isolation has revived snail mail as a way to bring a little sunshine into someone’s day. I’ve been on the receiving end of many notes and cards recently, and I’ve started sending some out myself. I used up an old batch of Christmas stamps, and now I can use the fun frog stamps I bought a few months ago. 🙂
Today, I’m grateful for notes from friends that have come in the mail recently.
There’s something truly touching about a card and/or a note that’s been picked out or hand-made or written just to reach out and say I’m thinking of you; you matter to me. I received this one just the other day. 🙂
In this time of trying to stay home to stem the tide of Covid-19, I’m thankful that I can receive uplifting cards and orders from online shopping in the mail. I’m thankful that I can send gifts and notes of encouragement to others, as well. I even sent a ball of yarn to one of my grand-kitties!
In the past year or so, I’ve gotten back in touch with a few people I knew back in the 1980s. Our paths diverged and we lost touch, but communicating with them again feels like coming home. It’s like saying ‘Yes — that’s who I am. And I’ve become who I am because I knew you when.’
