As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I did receive a number of extra postcards from Love Notes participants. The great thing about the Love Notes community is that the connections to other individuals are not just about getting postcards. Participants enjoy reaching out in their own way to other participants. Some make cards and notecards. Some purchase them, but all seem to use snail mail to brighten someone’s day and to get to know each other better. I was pleasantly surprised when I received my first unsolicited Love Notes and now I look forward to the occasional happy mail in my P.O. Box.
Here are the extra love notes from October 2016. From Christine B.:
“Don’t forget to remember:
- You deserve the very best.
- Be sure to love yourself.
- Pay yourself a compliment.
- Continue to make art and look at nature.”
“Imagine…No hate. No judgment. No suffering. Just peace and love.”
“Courage is feeling the fear and doing it anyway…”
From Lorelei (whose name I love):
“Don’t forget to remember…
- to enjoy a pumpkin latte or muffin or both
- to treat the kiddies to best treats ever
- to enjoy the gorgeous colors of the season
- to unplug and read a good book
- to enjoy friendships old and new”
Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. –Albert Einstein
“Can you imagine using this as transportation to work, shops, churches, or schools? And with kids, packages, bad weather? Oh, my!”
From Jacki W., a new Love Notes friend, who resides in the U.K.:
“Don’t forget to remember that life is too short to wake up with regrets, so love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. Nobody said it would be easy. They just promised it would most likely be worth it.”
Sent with a nice long note with lots of love.
That’s it for now. Hope to see you in January for Love Notes 2017!
