It’s Day 14 of 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes. Ya’ll, we’re almost halfway through this crazy challenge. #Write31Days friends: you can link up today’s individual post over at Five Minute Friday too. Today’s word is MAIL.
Set your clock, friends. Here we go!
Opening the mailbox gives me a real thrill. An envelope, thick or longish, with a stamp from a far away place, or one of those tiny envelopes which falls to the asphalt from the stack of junk flyers: it’s gold.
I love to be thought of, like anyone. To be remembered, thanked, asked a question. The waiting involved with snail mail makes me appreciate it all the more.
Someone once tweeted to me, “Thanks for taking the time to write.” The letter I sent had gone to the person’s church overseas. The recipient didn’t know of it for weeks. But when it was discovered, the sentiment was all the more appreciated.
Sometimes I wish God would put a letter in my mailbox. I would pull it out and open the sealed point and grin as I would read,
I was thinking about you the other day….”
I would tuck it in a book or my Bible and treasure every written page.
