a week of ordinary miracles, day 2


My ordinary miracle came today by way of the post office.  Elizabeth and I have been blog friends for years now.  We've both written about our love of letters and mail.  We've even exchanged addresses and done nothing with them.  Till today.  Elizabeth wrote me the loveliest letter.  It's all slanty handwriting and poetic thoughts about books and dogs and melting snow and spring.  Joy in a mailbox; that's what it was.  My wonderful, perfect, ordinary miracle.  Thank you, Elizabeth.  Thank you, U.S. Postal Service.

Write someone a letter today, won't you?  I know I plan to.   And, hey, email for my address if you want to write me.  ;^)  Have a marvelous day, friends.

How exciting to receive this very special letter. I did write many short notes today and soon off to the USPS to send them. But not so romantic and wonderful, but thank you notes to people we saw along the road of our road trip in California.

Letters are the best. They really can make your day. I believe it is a lost art.
