Finding time to connect with others through written word has been on my mind lately. Preparation for writing can be provoking to this experience. At times, as we think of how nice it will be to slow down long enough to write a note to a friend, we often dismiss as a luxury. One suggestion I can lend is to combine this with your daily tea break or even while you enjoy your meal. Cards and notes on hand (as well as pretty postage stamps) will provide the inspiration. Set out the notes you intend to write that day and glance at them as you pass by. You soon will surprise yourself at the fluidity of your words. As the daylight in our northern communities shades us with amber glow this month, join me in embracing the mood of gratefulness.
GOODNESS in the HEARTS of people
bring BEAUTY to the SOUL of the world.
When we write a note to a friend for a good deed we are reminded of the value of receiving graciously and giving thanks. So often we are neglectful of thanking those in our lives who help make our life better. Finding time throughout our busy days is most rewarding. As we pattern our day around a mindful respite, we will find the necessity to fill these moments with simple, thoughtful prose. One way to guarantee this time every day is to have some cards and notes “on hand” as I am often told. So, stop by, email or call to keep your sachet up to date with inspirational cards for sending. You will soon see the personal rewards of this habit. Send thanks! It feels good.
