A New Ritual
There are many things that bring a smile to my face, one of them is mail from a friend. I like to refer to them as "happy mail days". I have had some pretty awesome happy mail days...from little notes and postcards to packages containing nature treasures, an apron, a mug, books, tea and chocolate. All of these lovely gifts are around my home and every time I see them I think of the person who was kind enough to send them.
A few weeks ago this was brought to my attention and I thought why not. I know how happy I am to receive a hand written note from a friend and I am sure many of you feel the same way, and so a new ritual was born. On Sunday morning sometime between breakfast and lunch I sit down with a cup of tea, my stationary and my address book and I write a little note to someone. Then on Monday I put it in the mail.
It is a simple pleasure and one that so far, three weeks in, has brought great joy to my Sunday morning.
P.S. If you like to receive little surprises in the mail be sure to email your address to me.
