My former boyfriend used to send me little things in the mail. He sent me a shirt that he had worn that smelled just like him. I still have this shirt and it still smells heavenly (because keep it in one of those air tight bags). It got me through a lot of nights in the beginning of our end.
I could count on getting little post it notesin the mail that he wrote little sentiments on such as "I love you" "You are beautiful" or "You are my world." In return I would send him cards in the mail. Some would be funny and very "store bought" while others were straight from my heart. I looked forward to going to the mailbox to send him something new or finding something in my box from him. We had a very special relationship and no amount of time will ever take that away. I still have the post it notes and the little sentiments he sent me which is strange because I normally throw such things away withthe exception of one item and one picture for my memory box. I still have the card from the flowers he sent me. Snail mail is so much better than email in respect to this because you have something that you can physically touch and feel in your hands. I placed this man's stuff including his pictures in my memory box today. Those of you who know me best know what this means.
