I am a member of a forum and a group of people on there have banded together to become Heartsisters to other members. We get the name and some basic information of someone and she becomes our Heartsister for the year. The idea is to write a letter, send a card, small gift, something, each month to let that person know that we are thinking of them. We in turn have a Heartsister that sends to us. I think it's a lovely idea and though it has been going for a few years on the forum this is my first year of being involved.
This morning I received letters and small gifts from my Heartsister. She is a lovely, generous woman and I think I am lucky to have her as my sending Heartsister. I don't know if she reads this, probably doesn't but I thank her for all she sends me. On the forum we have a thread where we can let our Heartsister know that we have received their letter, card, whatever and to thank them and I have done that but wanted to write about it here too.
This morning, among other thigs, there was a small booklet on Wildflowers in the Southwest. I have had a quick look through it and there are a couple that I recognise and it will be fun to take it on a bushwalk, picked from the bushwalking book she sent a while ago, and seeing what we can find.
The woman I send to lives in Queensland but I don't
know if she is still
a member of the forum as I haven't heard if she has received any of the
things I have been sending over the last few months. It's hard to know
whether to keep sending or if she has left the forum and is no longer
interested. I put a return address on the things I send and nothing has been returned so I assume that she is getting them so will probably keep sending until the year is up. What would you do?
I know some of you have been involved in this idea and I would be interested in what your thoughts on it are. And what do you send or have recieved as I am always looking for nice but inexpensive ideas. Thankyou.
