Happy Mail Is A Beautiful Thing

I've been very blessed in my life. My world is full of good friends who are so giving, thoughtful, and creative.
My heart and my mailbox overfloweth as of late.
This thoughtful package of goodies (all of which are right up my alley) came from a new friend, Miss Karli of Retro Plants.
I can't wait to put these treasures to use when we move into our next home.
Thank you Karli, you blew me away.

My dear friend Amy has been my friend FOREVER.
Really, we played together when we were little girls.
She is like a sister to me.
Anyhow, she sent me this super cute vintage button ring as an early birthday gift.
She was so excited and she couldn't wait to send it.
My birthday is in July, just like hers.
Just one of the many things I love about my Amy friend.

With all that said, here's my point.
I love to share my happy mail with you, not to brag, but to remind you that little acts of kindness (like sending a card or a care package) can really make someone's day.

I think we are all going through hard times.
I feel alone sometimes.
When I do, the only thing that makes me feel better is reaching out to a friend.
Since I don't like using the telephone, mail is my outlet.
Okay, I'm off my soapbox.

Am I the only one out there who can't stand calling people?

I am not a phone person either, but an unexpected piece of mail can make my week!

i hate calling people, or talking on the phone period. i hardly ever pick up my phone, i just let it go to voicemail. i'm a texter hardcore. but mail is always a sweet surprise too!

What a beautiful package!
I'm with you, Kat - I hate talking on the phone, but I sure love sending and receiving mail. :)

I loved your point of this post. Oh know what you mean about the phone. I'm not a fan of the phone. I too get uplifted from mail. I wish I was better at sending love notes. Kevin thinks I'm so goofy for sending your gift early, but I just couldn't help it. Love you.
