I love the rebelliousness of snail mail, and I love anything that can arrive with a postage stamp. There’s something about that person’s breath and hands on the letter.
Diane Lane makes a great point. I am bound and determined to embrace the “rebelliousness” of letter writing.
I love sending lovely notes through the world; sending smiles, hugs and love all over the place. Knowing that the receiver opens their mailbox and breathes a sigh of relief that it isn’t just full of advertisements and bills, but love.
Today I ordered a wax seal stamp and wax to add another personal touch of joy to each letter I send. I am so very excited to get my stamp in the mail. I ordered a bee stamp because bees are my trademark encouragement to be like the bee!
I cannot wait to receive my stamp and start using it. Does anyone else use a wax seal stamp in letter writing?

I am an Orthodox Christian, a deacon’s wife, a mother, and an aspiring Kindler of Joy.
I believe I’ve begun to understand (finally), by the grace of God, where we can begin to find happiness. True happiness. My heart longs for a deeper connection to those around me and to creation. I want to feel joy not only in myself but to see it on the face of people I love and those that God brings my way.
Thus, begins my journey to become a Kindler of Joy. It is a journey, a path of learning and growing. So I’ve created my blog as a reminder to myself, daily, to open my eyes and find the beauty and joy around me. I long to share this joy, to spread this joy and to inspire others to become Kindlers of Joy. When we kindle joy in others we spread a light throughout this dark world. A light that is desperately needed.
Won't you join me in spreading this light, this joy?
