HEART STRINGS

Sometimes people do things that are so nice they just touch my heart.

We have the nicest rural mail lady ever! She always gets the mail in the right mailbox and she always waves to us if we are out in the yard when she delivers the mail. If we have a package too big for the box and aren't home, she will put the package on the front porch and leave a post it note in the mailbox letting us know where it is. The other day I received a really large envelope that wouldn't fit in the mailbox and it was a windy day. She put the envelope on the porch and sat a couple of flower pots on the corners to keep it safe. She just goes beyond the call of duty for a mail person.

When our new grandson was born we put a blue bow on the mailbox and I posted a picture of it here:

Yesterday when I checked our mailbox for mail there was a baby gift in there. The tag said, "For the new arrival. I know he is precious". And it was signed by our mail lady! Well, this is one mail lady that is definitely getting a Christmas gift from us.

Sometimes when I think the whole world is just going bad, someone will rekindle my hope in the human race!

The only question I have is this. Do you think she thinks "I" had the baby? Surely she knows I'm a little old for that!!!

Have a great day!

What a sweetie you have for a mail lady! I guess when you leave the thank you note, you can clarify who had the baby... hee hee! She must be really special.
