It was Friday when the mail brought me this beautiful book mark. It was made and given to me by Annette, from Annette's World. I think what was most touching about this little piece of mail was not its content, but the thought that went into it. As I opened the envelope, I was taken over by a deep sense of gratitude.
I was grateful the internet has brought so many kindred souls into my life and that I was able to share a little bit of their lives with them. I was even more thankful about the little note she hand wrote on the back of one of the little paintings she sent me for my art journal.
It got me thinking how I missed receiving mail, writing letters and receiving them. It brought me a little sadness that most kids being born today will never receive a letter, and how the magic of the written word- with ink and paper- is going away.
I feel thankful that I received many letters and for Annette, for reminding me that somehow we are all connected.
