Snail Mail Surprises

--by brighteyes, posted Jun 6, 2008

I was very busy yesterday snipping coupons, cartoons, gathering inspirations, stick-em's, jokes, good reads, music and other goodies for my snail mail treats.  Usually I send my snail mail surprises out monthly but with the holidays I haven't.

Seems many of my friends , a few widows and a few family members are really down.  I believe its a combination of life challenges, the weather and the holidays.

I want to do my part to spread cheer, goodwill and smiles to let them know I am thinking about them and sending them hugs, since I can't be there in person.   I wrote several short letters and cards then filled them with all sorts of goodies depending on the recipents and what I thought would cheer or inspire them personally.  These goodies included an inspirational book, a little mystery fun book, poetry, a spa coupon and a Birdsong DVD.

I also held each card/letter in the palm of my hands infusing it with love and good wishes for their health and improved outlook on life.  I then added fancy stamps and envelope stick-ems as well and mailed them off this morning!   :)
