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.

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

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: A reminder to stay young and try something new.


Sometimes my notes to elders turn into mini-pep talks and reminders we still have control over how are days are spent.

It’s quotes like today’s that help move the message forward. So if/when I’m at a loss for words, there is always a quote or a calendar page or a photo from my camera roll to add impact and/or insight that I generally lack.

Goodwill words: Laughing at imperfection.


Using another calendar page to spice things up for another ‘elder’.

Nothing like human foibles to evoke a laugh or two.

Just a reminder: This is not a ‘see what I did? You should too! project. This is me following Austin Kleon’s suggestion to ‘share something small…’.

Goodwill words: Hoping this recipient wasn’t in retail.

Nothing like my own design ineptitude
to play into the note’s featured image…

One of the other challenges to writing to an unnamed ‘other person’ is the possibility of offending someone.

But in the end, I shrug and have faith the note reaches someone who might a) find the humor b) have pity on me…as a human, a writer, a delusional who hopes to amuse.

Goodwill words: Another note for *Love for Our Elders*


It’s sometimes a challenge to come up with something different and/or tailored to an unnamed recipient. Love for Our Elders handles the distribution.

So I try to use different sparks or starting points for my messages. Daily calendar pages such as this one are a big help.

Goodwill words: Checking in with a long-time friend

Buddy’s tech skills have come under some household scrutiny of late…
Yes, it’s a mess. The curse of being a lefty doesn’t help.
And forgetting that fact doesn’t help either.

A reminder from this latest foray: Aaaah, the power of imperfectionism. On clear display here. “It’s the thought that counts” could never be more applicable.

But this friend had recently lost her partner of 50+ years and I wanted to follow up our phone visit with something in the mail. Plus, she–an SPCA volunteer and greyhound rescuer–loves dogs. Not sure what she thinks of left-handers, however…

Another reminder: Dog images just plain work for me. And our pets have to earn their keep somehow, right?

Yet another reminder…4 x 6 photos double as postcards quite nicely. [though I’m generally too lazy to dig for a postcard stamp, so I end up slapping on a first-class and get it sent!]
