Sweet

Not as sweet as Yelley's love story, but perhaps sweeter than the pumpkin pails of candies kids got last night. My brother woke me up this morning with a handwritten note from the 7-year old son of his boss who recently got a copy of The Yellow Paperclip with Bright Purple Spots as a birthday gift.

Dear Nikki:
I want to meet you. I like your book. I hope I will see you soon.

What a great way to start a new month: with renewed hope (beyond hope) for more new friends, more handwritten notes (when was the last time you really wrote and not typed?!), and more sweet stories to tell.

:) what a sweet story indeed! With the new technologies we sometimes forget to write a simple note, or a letter. Like for instance here, in Christmas, last year in the television they said that people wrote more text messages than sent postcards expressing their wishes for the holiday season. Maybe in time people will start missing these things and get back to sending notes or letters. :) ♥

Oh, and congratulations on your TV interview on ANC channel. It must have been so exciting. :D

All the best to you Nikki!
