Wonderfull (Full of Wonder) Wednesday

Looking for the wonder in everyday life! 
I'd love for you to join me on this journey. 
If you find wonder along the way, please leave a link in the comments,
so others can share in your wonder 

Isn't it wonder-full to get mail? It is just as much fun to send out mail!

So far, as part of My March Mail Mandate, I have mailed out a wire necklace that I donated to help fund an adoption. I blogged about the adoption here. You can donate here. I also tucked in some stickers and beads and things for her little girls.

I painted up the package and the clerk at the post office was pretty impressed. I explained that I was sending it to some little girls. He said that he was 31 years old and would be excited to get a package like that in the mail. See? Mail is awesome!

I also got my first piece of mail from a reader!
And I mailed them out a postcard in return.
Wishing them luck in collecting a postcard from every state.

Now I am gathering some things to send to our friends, Emmy and her mama Lindsay, from over at Apple of Mama's Eye.

They moved to Louisiana with their soldier this past December. When I recently asked Lindsay if there was anything I could send her that they didn't have down there, she said Coco Wheats.

I had no idea they didn't have Coco Wheats everywhere. I haven't eaten them in a long time (especially now that we are gluten free). My brother, Matt, used to make them and mix sprinkles, and candy, and all kinds of crazy things in with them. The smell of cocoa arose from the box as I packed it into the envelope.
Funny how smells can bring back memories.

Real mail is just as wonderfull for the one doing the mailing as for the one receiving the mail!


  1. Nice, that's very sweet of you.. More power to your blog.

  2. Real mail is wonderful! I have my girls writing and mailing their cousin who lives about an hour away at least twice a year. This helps them to practice their writing and to get familiar with the mailing system, including how to address an envelope and raise the flag and wait for a return letter. If you run out of people to mail to just add me to your list. :)

    Check out our educational songs, written by my husband and I at

  3. What wonderful mail! I'm sure the recipients will be thrilled!

  4. Great job! I need to get cracking on my mail...

  5. We love mail around here, and Co Co Wheats too!

  6. I am so glad you got our postcard. The boys had fun drawing their pictures on it. Luckily, my youngest was open to interpreting his drawing lol.
