finding the right words

In 2014, my year was blessed by a gift I received just about 
every week...a handmade postcard from Nan.  As an artist,
Nan set a goal to create and send out a card each week.
From collage to stitchery to watercolor.....she designed & 
mailed.  

The cards were based on seasons, events, celebrations!

Whoever was on Nan's mailing list was in for some joy!!


Each card has been so special, both in the cover design 
and in the words on the stamp side.  Each card reminded 
me of the importance of words & sweet details.


Each week that a postcard arrived was met with surprise
and appreciation...."she thought of me....again!"


I am most certain my mail carrier came to wonder who 
Nan was and how she might get on this extraordinary
mailing list too!


These postcards will be paged through & looked at 
over & over.  They are intentional & meaningful!  They 
not only came from Nan's hand...but from her heart.


And just when I thought I received my favorite one...a new 
favorite one would arrive.


I find myself at some loss as to how to express my
appreciation to Nan.  So, I have decided to spread
her words...to share her kindness.

Yes, kindness matters!




And so I will count my blessings...Nan, you are most
certainly one of them!


When the final postcard arrived in December, 2014...
I cried as I held it in my hands.  Tears of thanks 
sometimes takes the place of words.

Thank you dear Nan!

So many of my "Nan cards" are tucked here and there around my house. I agree with your sentiments, they, and Nan, are very special.

It was such a pleasure and joy to create the cards! I'm so glad you enjoyed them.

What a lovely blessing. You are blessed twice. Once by Nan's creative hand and then again by Nan's friendship.
You are one lucky lady.
Have a great New Year.

Nan must be the sweetest girl to do this Kari. I would say, very very special. Her cards are lovely little works of art.
You are so right about tears of thanks. Sometimes we really can't impress on someone how much their kindnesses mean to us.
