I received my first Love Note in the mail today.
Before I share it, I’ll show you the one I sent out to a woman in Scotland. It’s a card I made from one of my earlier doodle designs.
The message I sent, in script (and didn’t think to take a picture of before I sent it out:
It’s never too late to do what you’ve always dreamed about. You were born for a reason and you have gifts and abilities you can share with others. If you give the very best of yourself, in return you will get what you need.
Many Blessings and Much Love, Casey
And the one I got today, from somewhere in the U.S. I’m not sure if we were supposed to send anonymous notes, but I sent it with my name attached. I don’t know where it’s from either, because the postmark was smeared.
But I love the handmade, distressed look of it. I feel quite distressed lately…so it’s actually quite fitting.
And the message inside (I covered up my address:
I really needed to hear the message today especially this part – “You are my friend” and “You are strong”.
I can’t believe what that I wrote – “if you give the very best of yourself, in return you’ll get what you need” – and then got this message today.
Especially in light of the Connecticut tragedy, and also for some really troubling personal things my husband was experiencing this weekend.
Whoever sent this, Thank You. You have NO idea how much this meant to me, to get this today. It lifted the darkness a little from my heavy heart.
