Sending mail, reaching out

Today’s tidbit is this bit of kindness from  Oh, Hello Friend:

I met Abby at one of my good friend’s weddings. She was a sweetheart. A few months later, my friend told me Abby was having a hard time with her parents’ divorce. My parents got divorced when I was really young too. Actually, I can barely remember a time we were a real family. So I sent Abby a little book of (encouragement) notes. The time when you’re young and growing up is so hard and things that happen with family really make an impact. I just wanted to reach out to Abby and tell her it would be okay.
…At the end I put some stamps and some extra cards in case Abby wanted to write back.
Read the rest of the post, and see the beautiful images of Abby’s book, at Oh, Hello Friend. Be sure to see the other Notes posts, as well. Just a small thing can make such a big difference in someone’s life.
