Thankful Thursday: 2/21/13

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

Today I'm thankful for my mother's snail mail.  She's been sending all of us kids weekly letters for a while now, so I'm used to getting at least a letter a week in the mail from her (much more fun than email!).  She also sends cards for all of the holidays, and now she's been making some of her own too.  I send out snail mail often enough, but I'm thankful that I also get to regularly receive it.

Want to brighten someone's day?  Write them a letter and send it in the mail!  Those five minutes and 46 cents will go a long way.

"How easily we get trapped in that which is not essential — in looking good, winning at competition, gathering power and wealth — when simply being alive is the gift beyond measure."
