Let us try Snail Mail.
I recently received "Common Nonsense" by Andy Rooney.
I opened the book and the following is on the first page for Part One:"Further proof of the fact that hope springs eternal is everyone's anticipation that the mail will bring something wonderful even though it almost never does."
I was wondering if the readers of this blog would humor me and take a few minutes to print out the above paragraph, add a handwritten sentence or two, and send it off in an envelope to a friend.
No big deal, but please do not just go get a Hallmark card and NO, you cannot just cut and paste and send an e-mail. (Well of course you could send an e-mail, but I am asking you not to, please.)
I have existed over the last eight plus years standing by at each mail call, waiting for any piece of mail. Today, with email, I venture to say that the odds of getting something nice in the regular mail are pretty slim. But it does not have to be that way.
Go ahead; make a difference in someone's mail. Drop them a line and let them know you were thinking of them.
You could possibly ask them to send the sentiment on, but that is up to you and I do not want to start a chain letter. Think of this project under the heading of random acts of kindness.
I was thinking of the song "Alice's Restaurant"; toward the end where lyrics urge everyone to go into their local draft board and sing a chorus of the song. The lyrics go on to say what would happen if two people do it, a few more people do it, and still more people.
Well, the dreamer in me is asking each of you to give it a shot.
Hey, all you Moms and Dads out there send a letter to you children. Show them what life was like before email.
I sent out ten letters myself. That is $3.70 worth of stamps. If I can send ten, could you all please send one or maybe two?
Be sure to post if you do send one, and let us know if you got a reaction back!
Go spread some joy today! Thank you.
