With today being the First Day of Spring 2018, I’m finding it inspiring knowing there is the upcoming Peace Rose Forever Stamp arriving in one month! My Spring Letter Writing is wishing these were already available to send out with Easter cards going out into the mail this week. It will be fun using these stamps when they arrive towards the end of the April National Letter Writing Month long event; there will be nine more days remaining at that point.

If you are new to my daily blog, at the end of today’s blog, is a listing of previous posts from this day for 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Upcoming USPS Peace Rose Forever Stamp

The new 2018 Peace Rose Forever Stamp USPS going on sale nationwide beginning April 21, 2018.

“The new Peace Rose stamp celebrates one of the most popular roses of all time. The stamp art features a detail from a photograph of the Peace Rose blossom and its creamy yellow petals, with a touch of pink on the edges. The rose revolutionized hybrid tea roses with its unique coloring, hardiness, and disease resistance…”

Within these blog posts are some flowers! In the 2017 post, it includes recalling the scene from the movie Ground Hog Day with Bill Murray in the Hallway towards the end of the movie with an exchange about will it be an early spring”.

As we wrap up, for those of us writing letters during Lent, today finds us during Week Five out of six weeks during Lent, leading up to Easter. It is a delight to share I was able to make two of the five Lenten Lunches this year; today was the last one and it was inspiring to hear about serving with passion, boldness, and joy when giving. 

Thank you for joining me today. See you tomorrow with my Wednesday blog post!
