Opening A Letter From A Foreign Country Makes Me Smile
Opening the post office box and fishing out letters with stickers from places like "Luftpost" & "Deutsche Post" makes me want to tear into my mail while standing in front of the walls of locked PO Boxes.But I don't.
There's something delectable about waiting until I am back home and sitting at my writing desk to look over the envelope. It's like waiting to eat one's desert. The anticipation.
I can't help but grin ear to ear when I get notes from other countries from autograph collectors of a variety of ages. While I utilize email for most of my daily correspondence, I really like opening letters that are written on paper and have been sent through the post.
I will write more with pen and ink this year. It's wonderful.
