I’ve been looking forward to writing today’s post about The Simple Act of Gratitude Stationery Set Thank you notes; also about the book by John Kralik and an audio author interview from NPR in 2010. The uplifting story I’m hoping finds making a difference for us. Also, I conclude with the latest USPS Forever stamp issued yesterday, and Free Card Friday reminder day over at Hallmark.
In researching today’s post, one of the things I’m continuing to have is my admiration to one of my Pen Pals. She successfully writes letters daily for a year to friends and family!

“A Simple Act of Gratitude is a book that tells the story of an inspiration, the writing of 365 Thank You Notes, and how my life was changed by the people who received them.
In December 2007, I had reached what I viewed as a nadir in my life. While my life seemed full of debts and disasters, I ached for the things and the security I felt I deserved. On January 1, 2008, as this dissatisfaction pervaded my thoughts, I took a walk in the mountains above Pasadena, where I was inspired to write one thank you note a day for the next year.
