Happiness in the mail

today the mail was filled with bills, lots of them and a few pieces of junk mail as well....but poking through all those business like envelopes, I caught a glimpse of the handwriting I know all to well, that of my dear friend Erika, and suddenly the pile of daunting bills didn't seem so bad to open...but I waited until all the other mail had been opened and sorted before enjoying opening the one from her, the one not only with a house warming invite, but also her annual Christmas letter/card, which this year is being called the Valentines Card because of all the craze in her life the last few month of 2011.

I had just made myself a nice hot mocha, and sat down to enjoy once again a wonderfully written non fiction story of her past year, wish I could write so eloquently and with such beautiful handwriting as well.

This is one of the few people in my life that can lift my spirits and brighten my mood just by seeing her hand written word.

  1. OH MY GOSH!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!! I'm really glad that you enjoyed the card - it makes it worth all the stamping, and cutting, and writing (which, actually, I selfishly ENJOY!) Making you smile makes me SO HAPPY :)
