“Instruction does much, but encouragement everything." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Nothing cheers me up like a hand written letter in my mailbox!! And it goes without saying that I absolutely LOVE making snail mail to send to someone who needs a little encouragement. Today's outgoing post idea is my way of encouraging you to send some encouraging snailmail!!
I started with a pun, of course!
"Orange you glad..."
My discouraged recipient recently entered a new life stage and was feeling a tad overwhelmed. She was also surrounded, of course, by people who kept pointing out all of the negative things about her situation. (There never seems to be a lack of Negative Nellies in one's life, is there?) I wrote a note to my pen pal outlining the "Top 5 Reasons" her new situation was awesome! I hope this note brought a smile to her face and a little cheer to her heart. Magic!
Orange you glad you sent some snailmail?!
Go postal, everybody!!
