Mail was an important part of my life growing up
Birthday cards with a two dollar bill from Grandma
Many Christmas cards, bright, hung from yarn around the room
Letters from family from far away

Later, I found im my mail box
Bills
Ads
Catalogs
Junk
Christmas cards – Happy New Year
and from my mother-in-law and mother
Happy birthday and Happy Anniversary cards

Now
Bills are paid on line
Ads pop-up on blogs I read
Messenger & Texting come from family and friends

When I visit my mailbox every 10 days or so
only medical bills and information
some catalogs
at Christmas cards come but fewer each year
but mostly Junk.
except for Mom,
she is still sending Birthday greetings
and Anniversary ‘Best Wishes’
The very very most important pieces of mail I could every receive.
Just like getting a mother’s kiss.

Greet one another with an holy kiss.
2Corinthians 13:12

  1. I am so grateful for the real letters my grandmother sent to me and to my daughters. I love how you tie your cards from your mother to being like a mother’s kiss. Never thought of it that way but yes. Yes I think you’re 100% right!
