Goodwill words: Admiration for a hero

I decided Mary [not her real name] needed a little reminder of her past contributions as a nurse and how she might still ‘stay in the game’ while she recovers from a serious accident.

Once again, I am reminded how my little annoyances in life–compared to the challenges faced by folks like Mary–are just that: annoyances.

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.

Writers: Embrace failure.

When I came across a page online with the same message, I immediately thought about us writers. (I’ve probably even used the image before.)

I explored the topic more deeply here, including a link to Enjoying the Fun of Failure.
