Lovely response from a postal worker

I received the loveliest email in response to my last post, Postcrossing to the #1 USA Postcrosser. The woman who emailed, who shall remain nameless, is one of my blog readers, AND happens to work at the post office where motherbrando sends and receives her mail. Motherbrando was the recipient of the last postcard I blogged about, and the woman who is currently the #1 Postcrosser in the USA.

I was so touched by what this post office blog reader wrote that I asked her permission to share it with you, and she graciously agreed:

What a hoot! Your post caused my on-line life and my off-line life to collide. I work at the post office that she [motherbrando] sends and receives all those wonderful postcards. In fact, she was how I found out about postcrossing. Love the card you are sending her...books are what you might call one of my weaknesses. lol

I wanted to let you know, as an employee of the USPS, how much I appreciate you and your fellow bloggers supporting and encouraging the art of letter writing. By the way, good mail is not only fun to send and to receive it is also fun to deliver! =)
So there you have it, folks, proof that our mail is brightening the days of not only its recipients, but perhaps of many of the fine people who handle our mail along its journey.
