I love snail mail.
FUN snail mail. Not particularly bills or credit card offers or fliers for dumb things.
But HAPPY snail mail, I am all about that.
This card showed up in my mailbox a week or two ago. It has left me smiling every time I look at it.
I texted my friend to tell her how much she made my day. Not only just my day, but many moments beyond that.
The card hasn’t only made me happy, it has me thinking.
The inside quote on the card says: “And by the way, yourself is pretty terrific.“
It’s simply not as easy as writing it or spelling it out.
But it IS so true.
This thing of each and every one of us having our own personal place to fill.
As Dr. Seuss likes to tell us, “No one can ever be you-er than you!”
PEOPLE may try to tell you you’re doing it wrong, but simply seek the Lord. We need to heed wisdom and advice, but we also need to ignore put-downs and requirements people try to place upon us.
We are not all cookie-cutter people. What I am passionate about and believe in deeply, may not be your thing or calling. It might not even be right at all for you.
And you know what I find about cut-out cookies anyway? Right on the surface they may look exactly alike, but when you peer closer, they aren’t.
This cookie is lop-sided, this one came out smaller, this one has a crumpled corner. And when I frost cut-outs, I never do them all the same. The variety makes it fun! The creativity of choosing how to decorate this one and then that one.
God is the ultimate Creator. I think He has so much fun creating each one of us in an unique and beautiful way!
Go out today and enjoy the “frosting and sprinkles” God lavished on YOU!!!
