Matters of the HEART

Happy 2018! It feels great to be back on this site. There is NOTHING like sending and receiving Happy Mail!


I am a single mom raising an incredibly witty and funny 11 year-old boy child. He is my teacher and spiritual advisor. He shows me who I am every day. Parenting him and being his Mama is the single MOST important thing I will ever do. He is my immeasurable joy. I joined Swap-Bot and Postcrossing because being a single parent can be EXTREMELY lonely at times. I live in Massachusetts where the people are kind and the winters are unbearably long. In my spare time I enjoy shopping at thrift stores, journaling, organizing my apartment, napping in the sunshine and calling my mom. I would like to believe that I can make friends all over the world through postcard and letter exchanges.

"Sometimes my loneliness creeps up from behind and covers me in a heavy cloak of unworthiness. I used to struggle towards the light but, I have become accustomed to the darkness. I remain still and wait for sunrise." ~~~~~Fruity Pebbles

Comment: Your list is fab! Lets keep in touch and see how we do on our lists.
Response: Thanks! That would be a great idea. However, I did not keep a copy of my list. You'll have to remind me of what I'm supposed to be doing. LOL!!!
Comment: Love the cards--thanks very much! The funny ones are so cute, and I love the donkey too (reminds me of a Colo. mtn. event called "Get your Ass over the Pass" where runners have a donkey with them). That Mr. Rogers stamp is great-super glad the postcard didn't cover up much at all of it. Your cards should be coming soon-I had it weighed at the P.O. because I didn't think I had enough postage on it. I needed more, and instead of handing me the stamps to put on my envie, the guy put them on and not very straight-grrr... but at least I know it won't come postage due! Thanks again, Carol in Denver
Response: So happy you enjoyed the postcards. I do love the funny ones, as you can tell. Have an amazing day!
Comment: Thank you!
Response: You are very welcome!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome card and playlist! Iā€™m excited to play the songs on my drive to work tomorrow! Also amazing handwriting !
Response: You're welcome. It's gonna be hard not to wanna dance to the Michael Jackson song! I've been writing in CAPS since third grade. I could never get that cursive thing down. LOL!
HelenG6 rated for For the Love of Dogs: PC Swap on May 13, 2018
Comment: Thank you for the nice card and your story of Lucky. He sounds like a wonderful dog!
Response: You are welcome. Lucky was my baby. Loved him beyond words.
Comment: Thank you! This one's a local.
graciepie49 rated for Bookmark It: DIY Bookmark Swap on May 12, 2018
Comment: Hello Miss Love :-) . . . Thanks for the lovely book marker and for your book suggestion. When I was in senior high school we were assigned to read "The Grapes of Wrath," but I learned that other schools had their students read "Of Mice and Men." So I never did read this classic, though I've seen the movie and read a lot about the story. I was inspired to learn compassion from a book when I was in grade school. Our school library had a copy of "Follow My Leader," by James B. Garfield, and I was lucky enough to discover it. I read it many times.
Response: You are welcome. I will have to look into a few of your past reads. Be well!
Comment: Thank you!

Comment: I really enjoyed your board and getting to know you via Pinterest. The pins about homeschooling were ones that resonated with me as well (I homeschool both my daughters). The red hammocks looked so comfortable.
Comment: Thank you! We seem to have some things in common! :-)
