We’ve got mail. I remember when I was a little girl I could not wait for our mailman to walk up on the porch and put the mail in our mailbox. It’s not that I got a lot of mail, but for some reason there was excitement in it. I can still remember to this day when I was in the fourth grade and we moved. I received a letter from our neighbors who did not have children and she would have my sister and I over to bake cakes and cookies. I remember writing them and asking him to be an usher in my wedding, and getting a “yes” response back.
Even after I married I could not wait to get mail. Today that is another story some days. Forty plus years later most days I dread the mail and love the mail. I dread that most of it has to be shredded or paid and stuff stacked up to file (because hey by the time I pay the bills, I don’t want to file the bills and I toss them in my “to file” basket). Now, let’s talk about that basket. I’m trying to improve on my filing tactics and file at least once a week, and this week I filed after I paid, but I was home a day to do that, but there is still a basket waiting on me. PROGRESS! I know some of you are saying why doesn’t she do auto pay or pay on-line. I’m not there yet (do auto pay the newspaper and one life insurance), but I like controlling and my husband is not into technology, and I’ve already had my identity stolen through secure Government records at work I trusted along with thousands of others, so I’m sure not going to pay on-line.
I love mail too. I love receiving mail from friends, my Bible studies from Proverbs 31 On-Line Bible Studies, and then there are books and magazines that I love. I LOVE to read, and two books came this past week that I can’t wait to read during our break of our Bible studies.
Look what came in the mail this week. I love this kind of mail. Four books and a tea/coffee package from a friend.
I love sending mail to my friends and family like cards and yes books I sent just last week to some of my Bible study team.
I love getting personal mail from friends and family – birthday cards, texts, private messages, etc..
How about you? Do you like mail?
