The pictures in this post show some of the mail I received this past few days. I love the magazine (I'm a subscriber) and the chocolates I won (from kitchengoddessintraining.blogspot.co.uk - they are handmade by chocolatebygenevie.co.uk) but the best mail of all is the hand written, the sent with love, the "I thought of you" letters and cards from friends. The card and birthing bead below was sent by a kind and generous mama that I first "met" through the Green Parent Forum. Thank you Denise! xxx
So I have been reflecting on my slowness in sending mail myself and my inability to just get it posted! I am carrying some guilt on this. I posted a couple of small letters last week but I have a bigger package for a friend sat in my hall (it's been there for two weeks!) waiting for Phoebe to finish a letter to go inside. I received such a lovely parcel from this friend and wanted to return the love. And I must apologise to the lovely Anna who has been so so generous to me, gifting me with two very special things, and I still cannot get organised to send something back. But I will!
So this is my effort at accountability! I really do want to post lovely happy mail back and in order to do that I need a system and I need to prioritise it. I know there is enough time! This is my public declaration that I intend to prioritise sending some love to friends and family in the time before baby is born.
I have really really appreciated the heartfelt and beautiful mail I have received and would like to thank everyone who has blessed me with a letter or parcel. Love to you all xxx
