It's just a few days into A Month of Letters and when I sit down to write a letter to a prospective penpal I feel a little like a new car (or maybe used) sitting in the lot just waiting for someone to take a look at me and decide whether they want a test drive...or not.
My mind says...am I shiny enough, interesting enough, clean enough, is my ride smooth or am I just a regular car that's very comfortable, cushy to ride in, already has the first dent and doesn’t mind if you bring your fries and drink inside.
Do people want the shiny, interesting, clean and smooth or are they ok with the comfortable, bring your fries, turn up the music, have a good time kind of car?
Is it necessary to have million hobbies or is my family, postcards, movies, animals, reading, letter writing and never a dull day life enough? I'm not a farmer (still wish I could have chickens), knitter, writer, fountain pen geek or any of those other cool things. I'm just me. Sensitive, loving, caring, stubborn, likes to have options, happy, wife and mom.
Soooooo....if you receive a letter from me, I'll be the one pulling up in the comfy car, good music on...looking forward to having a good time with you!
Now to the mail~
