Signed, Sealed, Delivered

In this technology-intense era, we can send an email around the globe in a nanosecond with the mere push of a button.

I don’t receive handwritten letters often, so when I do, they’re extra special. During my sabbatical, I received physical correspondence from a few people. One package winged its way across the pond from Wales!

People sent mail to my Boise address and then Len brought it to me when he visited Darby. It was so much fun!

When was the last time you sent or received a handwritten letter?

As you’re aware, the opening line of this post is part of the United States Post Office creed, and in our neck of the woods (about an hour north of Chicago), our delivery personnel’s tenacity is tested on a frequent basis during the winter months.

We actually have two mailboxes. One at HolEssence (our place of business) where we receive advertisements, bills, and other administrative-type items…

 …and one at home. After 17 years of service, Len just replaced our home mailbox with a great BIG barn red one. I love it and so does our delivery person. He listened quite patiently as I explained that he could only put really neat stuff in it!

What’s the best thing that’s ever arrived in your mailbox?

Listen with your heart,
