the just because

As you would know from the craft monday post I made one of my cards for a special girl. That special girl is Keely.

Everyday I check the mailbox Keely asks me if there is something in there for her. My answer is 98% of the time no. My heart melts when I say this simple two letter word to her. She does not ask for much when it comes to something for her. She even thinks the catalogues, (junk mail), that are filled with toys or anything kids is for her. She calls them her magazines.

Yesterday Keely received her card. All perfectly placed in the mailbox by Taj. I loved seeing her face when she realised it was the card I made for a special girl. I wrote her a lovely note inside too. I wanted her to know how proud I am of her with how she is eating bananas. They maybe mixed with milk and honey, but they are still one full banana. You have to love a smoothie! This is huge for Keely as she did not eat any fruit. Now she has had 4 bananas in one week.

This will not be the last time I write to her and pop something in the mail for her. I think this could be our thing.

You should give it a try. Pop something in the mail for your little ones, or a lovely friend, or a family member. The just because cards or letters are always the best.
