After a fabulous two days in Boston, thanks to TJMaxx and Marshalls, and a very eventful (but safe!) trip home, I’m back in my old stomping grounds for a few hours before I head back to the airport again.
I arrived home to a clean house (thanks, Hub!) and the most thoughtful and encouraging handwritten note from a good friend, wishing me well on my speaking engagement this weekend. It was so unexpected and thoughtful, it brought tears to my eyes. Or it could be the fact that I’ve been wearing my contacts for the past 36 hours.
But remember personal, handwritten notes? They’re fast becoming a relic, but I have several friends who still write them, and every time I receive one I swear I will become a note writer again. Before I discovered email and blogging, I wrote the longest letters. I’m sure you can’t imagine.
I’ll have an update on my trip tomorrow, but for now, I have a date with my pillow. TTFN.

Enjoy your brief rest, and then hugs and prayers for your NEXT trip.
Really hope you are blessed there, not only will you give to others as you speak, but receive too 🙂
Oh, yes! I still have the notes from high school/college to prove it. 🙂
I know you’ll do a great job at She Speaks…I mean really, speaking is definitely one of your many gifts.
Have fun, I’ll be thinking of you!
Jo-Lynne, will you make your She Speaks speech available for us to read after the conference? I’d love to see it!
I am trying to encourage my children to write letters. When I was in school, we had pen pals at other schools. They don’t seem to do that anymore.
In an age where my blog is my scrapbook and my text messages are my thank you notes, I still try to keep a few letters going out every now and again. Isn’t it funny how we keep hand- written notes (I use them as book marks and keep the love letters from my hubs tied in a pretty ribbon), but never print out an e-mail!
Can’t wait to see you soon. In living color. We should write a note about it.
I am praying for your trips.
I love to get “real” mail too. It shows that someone took a special piece of time to sit down and think of just you. I am guilty too of not sending them out as often as I use to,and I really should. Thanks for the reminder! 😉
I agree about handwritten letters. They’re the BEST. I need to write them more regularly.
Thanks for the reminder.
