February 20

Stamps and All

For those who regularly read this blog, you might remember that I’m following the Lenten calendar I wrote about on February 12. Today the calendar suggests that I “make a card for someone who needs extra love.” I’m going to go one better. How about a letter? You know — where you get out stationery and a stamp and you share your thoughts and news with someone you love. Letters. I’m going to be sending mine from Texas, where I am teaching but want to take a moment to tell a friend how much I appreciate her friendship and ask her how she’s doing following the loss of her dad. Actually make that two letters. Who in your life would love to receive a nice note from you? Who do you know who could use a reminder that you are cheering them on in life?
