Thankful Thursdays

In honor of Thanksgiving…I thought I’d take this month to blog about thankfulness. So on Thursdays, I’m highlighting things I forget to be thankful for.

And here’s the first one…mail.

 
 

I was listening to the news this morning and they were talking about the United States Postal Service crisis. If the government legislature isn’t able to find a solution, the USPS is going to have close something like 3200 post offices nationwide. Amazing…

I admit it. I take the mail for granted. For me, the entirety of the postal service is based on a conglomeration of shiny metal boxes. How does the mail get there? I don’t think about it – it’s magic.

With the convenience of modern mail and internet and all that that involves, I have forgotten how precious communication is. I have forgotten the value of the mail and the people that deliver it.

So do me a favor…the next time you see your mail carrier, tell them ‘thanks.’ My dad was a mailman many years ago. It’s a hard job.

Today, I’m thankful for the post office.

Haha I find it hilarious that this is your post today because I just dropped off Garrett's first care package (complete with hot pink zebra print packing tape and a very confused look from the postal person when I walked up to the counter) today on my way to work. Love you.
