With love, from me to you

On my joy list is a curious item - mail something.

Why is that there?

Because I don't know a single person who doesn't like to get something fun in the mail. Bills, magazines, catalogs you've never asked for (I'm on some national mailing list for gardening supplies - I've had mail from nurseries in Tennessee even - and I don't even have so much as a plant) - those are not fun. But a handwritten letter or a package? That's worth the daily trip to the mailbox.

So if I take the time to mail something fun, then I get to make other people's day, like sending a Klingon Bird of Pray corkscrew to Ex Libris and Harry Potter books to Eilonwy. Also, on every trip I've gone on for at least the last six years, I've found a postcard and mailed it to Xena. She loves them, and I love sending them. (I even send them sometimes when I'm visiting my home state, which is where she lives, but in the next valley north. This amuses me.)

Having a sister on a mission gives me even more reason to mail things! I returned the favor after my birthday package arrived looking like this:

Care packages = WIN. Care packages covered in stickers = EPIC WIN!

So, don't be surprised if something random comes in the mail to you from me!

(P.S. Between writing this post and finishing it, I acquired a cactus. Let us pray I do not kill this one. Yes, I can kill a cactus. No, I do not want your gardening magazine.)

That was absolutely awesome of you to do that! Thanks again! I'll have to return the favor sometime. :)

Or you can be like me and make people fly across the country to your place to pick up their postcard. Really saves on stamps that way.
