52 Weeks, 52 Letters

*REAL MAIL* is a lost art.
 Our *littles* may not really ever know it.
Already on my list of goals for 2011 was to send *real mail* once a week.
And then I saw THIS
And decided to join the challenge.

Will you join me?
It truly WILL be a challenge.
But you never know, you may MAKE SOMEONE'S DAY
Just by sending a piece of mail.
A letter, a card, a postcard.

Let me know if you will join me.
Leave a don't have to do a post about it.
But if you do, link up here.

And, you KNOW I have to have a picture!



A few years back, I was very good about sending cards out to those in our church - encouragement cards, thinking of you cards....then for some reason, I quit doing that.

You have made me decide to take this challenge - at least sending a greeting card out weekly.

Oh! I'm excited now! What a great thing!!

I send so many cards each year that I have to keep a journal to keep up with who I have sent a card to and what kind of card I sent. I keep a list by the month. I have always LOVED to send cards/letters and I guess my love came from my Mother. That is my Mom's ministry. She loves to hand write notes to people and she sends cards/letters out everyday. I especially enjoy sending cards to people for no special reason, other than to let them know I am thinking of them that day. I know how thrilled I am to receive a card/letter when I go to my mailbox. What other joy can be bought with just 44 cents? Great challenge, Angela!!!! Love & blessings from NC!

Just a little something from Judy said...

This is WONDERFUL!!! Walking to the mailbox and discovering a card or letter makes it seem like Christmas all over again. I agree wholeheartedly and want to commit to this in my heart.

Your picture is beautiful!
