Thankful Thursday 2-24-2022

Note of Notice

Thankful Thursday lands its musings of gratitude upon the act of reaching out. Around our home, greeting cards show up in the mail on birthdays with a special handwritten note (usually in cursive that sometimes needs to be translated by myself for my kids!) from great grandma. Not only do these moments of joy show up on birthdays, but they also arrive throughout the year on the various holidays. Additionally, we can find electronic messages arriving in our emails with warm thoughts and wishes being sent our way from her. Growing up, I always enjoyed receiving these pieces of happy mail. I knew my grandma was thinking of me as she wrote out my card and as I opened it, the love she sent with the card was wrapping me in a giant hug.

My grandma’s gift of connection is something I attempt to live out a little differently in my life, but with heartfelt love. A person will enter my mind and I will sent them a quick text with that simple message “You were on my heart and mind today! <3” This often will initiate a short but beautiful exchange that brings joy and love to the moment. The small but impactful connections shine a bright light into the day.

I challenge you to observe your thoughts and surroundings. Who pops into your mind or your line of vision? Can you send them a note either through snail mail or electronically? Go ahead and send them your note of notice. Your happy mail will most certainly bring some joy and love to the day.

Blessings!
