Inspired by a post on a wonderfully fun blog I follow, I actually took the time to sit down and create ‘snail mail’, encouraging Mother to do the same.  My nephew recently had surgery.  Instead of sending a quick text, I decided to be creative.  Mother and I put together, what we hope will be, an envelope of cheer when opened.  A photo and a small gift were wrapped in tissue paper.  They were then placed between two pieces of thin cardboard to prevent being bent.  This was inserted inside the card with a handwritten note.  Cute stickers were placed randomly.  This piece of encouraging snail mail was addressed and posted, along with an additional card from Mother.


A few minutes out of the day to bring a smile to someone loved…
