In our modern society, we send out written messages everyday: text messages and email has become an important part of our lives. With no thought at all, we send out these messages to family, friends and colleagues. The art of letter writing is slowly dying – and the post office no longer sifts through as many letters as it once did. There are those, however, who still use the services of the postman. My mom is one of them. She may not send long letters that she writes in the mornings (as my grandmother once did), but she does send out the beautiful cards that she makes.
I received my Christmas and birthday cards in the mail yesterday (their tardiness due to a postal strike). I enjoy them for so many reasons: their creativity, the effort that was taken to make them, the love that was sent with them – and the fact that receiving something in the mail besides bills and advertisements is a treat!
Do you receive mail from the postal office?
