Post Card Collection Explosion

Dear Diary - You know I collect post cards. My friends, Abbey Mia and Harper, or their mom, Elaine, always send me a post card when they go on vacation. They write me a note and sign it, and then they mail the picture post card to me at my office. I keep all my post cards on the bookcase so everyone can see. All of my post cards have personal notes, and stamps and postmarks on them.

Yesterday, I got an envelope from my Aunt Shelly and my very good friend, P'Nut Daniel. It had a really nice card inside with a personal note(which I tasted a corner of), and a whole bunch of picture postcards from Washington State. Wow. I couldn't even count them all. They're all really nice pictures but they're not signed, or stamped, or....well, it's not like I don't appreciate that they thought of me because I do. But post cards for my collection are more about the message from the heart. Like when you go on vacation and you're having so much fun you forget mostly everything, except your very good friends back home, and then you write them a personal note and mail the card. And then everyone, even all the postal carriers, can see where your friends are and that they are thinking of you and that they miss you.

So here is what I got from my Aunt Shelly and P'Nut:

Thank you for thinking of me, but next time please send me just one card with your thoughts on it and a stamp and a postmark. That way I can put it into my collection.

I just love you guys!
