Dear Perfect Stranger,

How are you today? I hope you’re doing well and if not, I hope that this note serves as a little pick-me-up during youd day. It’s spring and summer time now and the warmth has reminded me of bubbles. Here’s a poem I found entitled “BUBBLES” by Paula Jane Harrison.

Bubbles
Some bubbles rise up to the sky,
Some bubbles don’t, I don’t know why,
Easily popped by just one touch,
Easily missed by way too much.

Silent and round as we make it,
Being forgotten bit by bit,
Weaker and weaker as it grows,
That is what happens, I suppose.

Of all the ones that we condemn,
We don’t remember all of them.
Even when we continue to grow,
We still wonder where they go.

I want to be able to blow bubbles in the park or in a yard this spring. What childhood activity do you want to do?

Sincerely,

Your friendly picker upper

Dear Perfect Stranger,

How are you today? I hope you’re doing well and if not, I hope that this note serves as a pick-me-up during your day. The ideas of what to write in this note came to me today when I finished writing my last exam of the year. It was one of those exams that everyone finishes early and is just waiting until they can leave. I’m pretty sure that everyone left as soon as they could. Anyways, while I was waiting, I started to get really excited about the upcoming spring/summer. I usually don’t get excited until I am a few weeks into my break but this time was different.

I am looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. I am looking forward to old habits and hang outs and discovering new ones. I am looking forward to new adventures and reminiscing about old ones. Most of all though, I’m looking forward to the personal growth that I seem to go through each summer. What are you looking forward to?

Sincerely,

Your friendly picker upper 🙂

Dear Perfect Stranger,

How are you today? I’m feeling fantastic today! There’s something about the rain that just makes me SMILE. I know that today isn’t the sunniest day and it sure isn’t the warmest day but today’s rain brings something special. Today’s rain is the first rain of the weekend and it looks like it’ll be followed by more. What I think is important about the rain today is the promise of a spring soon! Spring with the sun shining, flowers blooming, birds chirping, trees filled with beautiful leaves, fresh fruits and vegetables growing everywhere is coming! Oh no, does this mean that it’s time for spring cleaning? Bummer.

Whatever spring and the rain means to you, I hope it is wonderful. Remember that spring is a time of new beginnings. Maybe you’ll start a new friendship, maybe you’ll start a new job or maybe you’ll just start each day with a smile. Whatever it is, spring is a wonderful season and I hope you enjoy it as much as I will.

Sincerely,

Your friendly picker upper =)
