I am sure I would answer this question a different way every day I am asked. Today the answer is: rewards. The rewards of friendships. Here is a wonderful reward I received in the mail today from a dear far-away stamping friend who keeps track of me via my blog. If this beautiful card is not enough, enclosed inside was a delightful three page newsy letter. E-mails and everything cyber related might be nice – but nothing can surpass the excitement and joy to receive a handmade card and a "hard copy" letter. Thanks Anne V -- This is why I blogged today.
