Goodwill words: Sending a little reassurance

Keeping up with my monthly challenge of eight letters, minimum.

There have been requests for cards, as well, so I’ll be digging into my page-a-day calendars and my photos to doll up those selections a bit.

Challenge for me: Just keeping an organized workspace to make the composition process seamless.

As you can tell by my occasional cross-outs, etc., I’m clearly working from the school of ‘better done than perfect’, but still, if I could remove additional distractions, that would make this an even more enjoyable project.

Goodwill words: Doling out deserved props.



Keeping up the goodwill words momentum. I see it as a way to volunteer without leaving home.

Goodwill words: Sending support to a fan of nature and baking




Time to return from a layoff from posting letters and notes. (It helps to inspire my own goodwill words routines.)

Goodwill words: She should write a book!


As mentioned in my previous post, I really liked that quote at the top of the letter. It seems to fit the purposes of these letters.

In this case, I suggested with sincerity that Mary write a short book.

She definitely would have plenty to share.

Goodwill words: Support during uncertain times.


I found the quote that I used for my heading just today.

Good stuff.

I actually kind of like the idea of the recipient making a collage of the letters she received.

I hope it turns out for her.

Goodwill words: Sending hope to a mom facing changes and challenges

This deserving person has experienced a string of bad luck over the years.

A reminder to me: It’s always nice to see that, by sending in a request to More Love Letters, someone is leading the charge to help these letters’ recipients.

Another lesson: There is always a quote available to kickstart any note or letter I’m writing. Yet another: I have fun trying to lighten things up a bit. One of my daily calendars usually comes through…


A few other notes from recent months…1. 2. 3.

Thanks for visiting. I always appreciate the folks who press the ‘Like’ button to let me know the post arrived in legible and at least semi-comprehensible condition.

And a reminder…these notes are just to serve as a nudge forward for those inclined to do something similar to the Goodwill Words Project.

Goodwill words: Today’s theme–Seek humor.

Had fun with this one…that poor Love for Our Elders recipient. Hoping they take it in the vein in which it was intended. (Whatever that means.)

So, yes, I really do hope the recipient has a sense of either humor (or at least compassion), as here is a portion of the stationery’s flip side…

Time to get going on my letters for the MLL folks.

Goodwill Words: April’s More Love Letter requests

Click the graphic above for a quick tour of the four April 2021 letter requests at moreloveletters.com.

It’s interesting…sometimes I dive right into these letters and other times I need the requests’ words and details to seep in. This has been a ‘let seep in’ month.

I do make a point of finishing letters for out-of-country requests first. And over time, I’ve wended my way through the USPS website to figure out the required postage and I have those stamps at the ready.

In James Clear’s words (Atomic Habits)…

“If you want to maximize your odds of success, then you need to operate in an environment that accelerates your results rather than hinders them.”

Goodwill words: Today’s theme–Educated vs. Intelligent

This is the first in a series of three notes I wrote late last week.

The other two are in the ‘queue’. That is the weirdest word to type, I swear. It never feels right.

I’ll also be posting a ‘video-tour’ of this month’s letter requests from More Love Letters.
