BLOG – GIFT DAY 196 :: for better or worse?

15 Jul
Today, I continue my CARD CRUSADE.
My little way of saying thank you and spreading some abundance.

And I have a question:
Is your handwriting better or worse than it was five years ago?

I find, as I write out these cards each day, that my handwriting is strained. As if my hands have forgotten how to write with pen and ink.

However, I can now type much faster.

And my thumbs, well, even though they are stubby, they can text pretty darn fast.

But my penmanship — that was honed over years of practicing calligraphy — has suffered from this digital revolution.

Just one more reason to get out a piece of paper and write. The old fashioned way.

And, to commemorate this newfound exercise for my fingers… I have added a little inspiration to my desk.

It feels like a real writing desk now. Flowers and prayers included.

Yesterday’s card (which had to be mailed today because it was Sunday) went out to a very special person.

Her name is Laura. And every time I see the sunflowers in our garden I think of her. I’m not sure why …sunflowers just remind me of my sunny friend, who I met in college as a freshman.

Laura has been with me through thick and thin and back again. From my mother’s funeral to my divorce decree, to jobs coming and going…

Laura has been that friend that will drop everything and find a reason to call, or write, or send a card.

Speaking of cards…
I have the best news and I can’t wait to share it with you…. tomorrow. 

Tomorrow, I will also share who received today’s card in the mail.

Here’s your hint:
– she was in the restaurant biz
– she is super fun
– she loves dogs

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
