When I was a child I used to think it was so cool that my parents seemed to get a mail box full of mail every day. My mother tired to tell me that it was mostly bills and junk mail but I thought any kind of mail was cool. Now that I am all grown up I realize the enormous annoyance of junk mail. I know that those bills will have to be payed. The mountains and mountains of mail we get telling us how much the insurance company is paying out for Evan's health care is downright scary at times. Often my only exciting mail is stuff I send to myself by ordering something online.
There has been the beginnings of a movement in blog land to change this. Damselfly has a contest going that involves the sending of nice letters. Annie has taken things a step further and actually set up a blog that contains other mommy blogger's addresses so that we can all send each other some good mail. I have started things off on my end by sending out three little notes. I hope the recipients are excited when they see my note in the mail in a few days. Maybe someone will send some to me before long (hint, hint). Go forth and hand write some letters!!! You never know how much you will brighten someones day until you try it.
