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

Merci Beaucoup
