Everyday, when I check the mail, I hear three whiney voices in the background.  “Is there anything for MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE?”  I’m not sure what they think they should receiving, but everyday they have hope.  Yesterday, they hit gold.  They each received a “good luck this year” card from their Gran.  They were so elated with their treasures that they carefully carried them into the house to read.  The rest of the night, I heard all about their pieces of mail.  “It had only my name on it!”  “It had a STAMP on it!” “Mine was different than HIS!”

So, if you’re trying to think of a way to surprise a little someone in your life, maybe an actual piece of Snail Mail will do the trick.  My three little someones were ecstatic, and I’m sure will continue looking forward to the daily trip to the mailbox.  It was one of those simple things that went a long way. 

We need more of those, don’t you think?
