Sometimes we get so entrenched in Life that we forget to live and appreciate it.
Last week someone decided to remind me. I received a postcard. It was unsigned with only a simple message:
Just a note to let you know someone is thinking of you ♥
That made me tear up. No, not because I thought it was a stalker warning me. That I can handle. I was overwhelmed that someone would take the time to do that for me. The last time I received an anonymous note like this was in seventh grade, after the Valentine’s Day “secret admirer” carnations had been handed out in class, and I was the only one to not receive any. I’m pretty sure that note came from my Earth Science teacher. Just as in seventh grade, the postcard was a lovely gesture and a comforting one. I can only hope to repay the kindness shown to me soon. But for now, I can only do this.
To whoever sent me the postcard, I will keep it always. It will remind me about my blessings, and also to pass that on to others 🙂
