Do you like to receive mail in your mailbox? I don't mean bills, advertisements, or your neighbor's mail. I'm talking about a hand written note from someone you know. With this clarification, are there more of you raising your hand to the enjoyment of receiving mail? I thought so.
My Gram was known for the cards and notes she sent people. When I was in college, she wrote me every day, yes, every day. I looked forward to those notes from home. They filled me in on what I was missing (this was prior to the digital age) and was a HUGE act of love.
I enjoyed hearing how everyone was doing yet it was the time my gram spent to write and send each note that still warms my heart and inspires me as I attempt to send notes and carry on her passion of writing to encourage others.
Time is one of the most valuable commodities in today's society, have you expressed your love, appreciation, thanks, concern, sympathy, or care to another person by taking a few minutes to write and mail a note?
Today's challenge and encouragement: send a hand written note to the first person you thought of as you read today's blog. As you write their name and address on the envelope and place the stamp in the top right corner...say a little prayer it is a blessing to them when they receive it. Your note might be the words they need to hear at that very moment...
I encourage you to send a written note to someone you care about today, you'll be amazed at how you encourage them.
