This was totally me when I was growing up......lots of lovely library books lying everywhere! I couldn't read them fast enough. I grew up in a very small village with no library but our neighboring village had one. Trouble was you had to go down a big hill, cross a railroad bridge and then a river bridge to get there. My parents forbid me to ride my bike to that library. Not gonna lie.....my friends and I snuck down there more than once to replenish our lot of library books! When you need a book to read it is impossible to wait for your mom or dad to get home from work!

I kept my card super simple this week because I made six of them this afternoon. The cold hard truth is that at my age I send out a lot of sympathy cards. But I have learned over the years how important a written note is at such times. We all love the speed and convenience of a text or Facebook message but there is still something special about getting a card or note in the mail.
My mother passed away a year ago this week and I remember how much it meant when I got cards in the mail. She had a great long life and I enjoyed notes that shared a memory of her. My daughter and I stopped by the cemetery Friday to deliver some flowers in a very special "vase"......oh she did love a Manhattan before dinner!
