In honor of my new friend Verna Hill Simms' 94th birthday today, I'm sharing a post she recently wrote on the "Journeys to Mother Love" blog. Verna writes letters to her deceased mother as well, and is where I first heard of this practice. May her letter to her mother brighten your day and rekindle the connection you have with your mother, physically on earth or in spirit above. Happy Birthday, Verna! Sending hugs and prayers to you and your family. ~ Ardis

Joseph Beuys' Postcards

I got into reading about Joseph Beuys this weekend. I never thought much about him before I began this project, but someone gave me one of his wooden postcards recently so I just had to do some investigating. 260 more words

Did you know April is National Card & Letter Writing month? Sending cards is my favourite way to say “hi; I’m thinking about you.” Sure a text is quick and efficient but letters and cards and romantic and thoughtful. 903 more words
