So, a few weeks ago I decided to participate in this nifty new pen-pal-esque program started by Sarah at Creating a Great Today called Monthly Mailers. The idea is that you're assigned a random person and you send via mail a positive and uplifting note or card, something small and inexpensive to touch that person's day. I think I was supposed to post about the little note I received yesterday (oops), but better late than never, right? :)
I was lucky enough to be assigned to Sarah's mother, Denise from Indiana (go Hoosiers!), and her little inspirational 'Make a Difference' card couldn't have landed in my mail box on a better day-- I had just gotten home from a long day at the office and it had been a crummy, that-time-of-the-month type of Monday.
After reading through her note, it's like a switch flipped and I immediately went from feeling sorry for myself/down-in-the-doldrums to perky as a peach! I had intended to skip my run that evening but instead went out and ran 4 miles along a new route in 38:50 and felt fabulous! All in all, this small piece of encouragement really turned my day around. I'd encourage anyone to try it!

Do you think you'll participate in Monthly Mailers next month? I've already signed up for November :)
