Dear 1HappyFool,

Thank you for introducing your friend Paul. By enriching your life he has reached out through time to touch others.

Today is a dismally gray day here in Denver. A pile of cards and notes are on my desk awaiting me to send off to various friends and relatives. I'm the one who always remembers birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, and sends out the Christmas cards every year. Today I wondered, "Why bother? It won't matter. And I probably won't hear from them anyway." Your message reminded me why I do this. I LIKE to write. I LIKE to make people smile. Paul did that.
