A Surprise Card!

Surprise Postcard, Sender: Terry Lovell
Sent: 13 Aug 2012 from Sherwood, AR
Received: 31 Aug 2012, Traveled 13,552 km in 19 days

In moments of doubt, I turn into kind words. One example is the message at the back of this surprise card from Terry:
You are a special person -- I know that to be true about you!
Thank you very much Terry! You make me smile every time with the postcards you send me and the lovely messages. Reading kind words from friendships I've made with people I haven't even met yet is very refreshing. For me, it reflects purity of human spirit. Despite what we see and what we believe to be an enormous damage in the human morale fiber, there is still the great potential for genuine kindness and good will even among strangers.

Reading Terry's message and looking at this card once again has cheered me up!

I'm off to bed tonight with a smile, renewed spirit, and excitement for the weekend!

But before that, I'm heading over at Beth's Postcard Friendship Friday to check for more nice postcards that will surely make me smile even more.

Sleep well everyone and have a great weekend ahead!



  1. I like that card! I just finished an article about "postcards about postcards" and that would fit in that topic due to the use of an old postcard back in the design.

  2. Beautiful card. The people we meet blogging are very special. They just seem to know when we need a lift! Happy PFF!

  3. Ah, Maria--what a lovely postcard! I love this old fashioned design. I hear postcards are becoming the thing to mail these days with postage of a letter costing more than a candy bar!

  4. What a gorgeous card - Terry made a wonderful choice! I especially love the flowers on the card - I'm so looking forward to spring flowers this year!

  5. a beautiful card.

    I have started a new feature on my postcard blog and am hoping that you will drop by. here's the link to the details.
