YES! Remembering the mailman, garbage men, and others who serve us is KEY!
I think this is great….especially since it is so cold here!!!
Love the ready made labels, thank you! Always important to thank those that do stuff you for every single day.
This one turned out to be the most amusing one to do. I wasn’t sure if it was even allowed to do, so I give it a good try. I left some tea and hot chocolate mixes in a bag where I usually put our outgoing mail. It was gone, so I assumed our carrier got it. A few days later, I came home to see an open box on our steps. A friend from college sent us a box, and it broke open. In the mailbox, I found a package pickup slip with a quick note jotted on it—-the tape on the box gave way while she was putting it on our steps, and she didn’t have any tape to fix it, so sorry it happened—–and thank you for the treats. The note made me giggle!
did this for the ups guy too
I left a package of Christmas cookies in the mailbox last year and the mail person left a note that they couldn’t take it.
I love this idea. We gave our mailman (Tim) a card and homemade ornament one year. Miss our old home that included my favorite mailman.
Time to get to know our new mailman and bless him too.
I made a little goodie bag with a card for my mail carrier.
Good Idea. Al way nice to think about others.
Love this idea. :) We usually put a Thank You note as well as coffee card in the mailbox at Christmas time. Thank you for prompting us to be Jesus with skin on this year.
Today was a fun one! I left some fresh baked cookies, a Starbucks giftcard and a fun note for our maillady, Ms. Cathy! I thought I would share the cute note I left her in case anyone else still wants to do a little something special for their mail carrier! “Through rain and sun and sleet and hail. You NEVER fail to deliver our mail. It might get tedious, the job that you do. But we want you to know we appreciate you!” God Bless You Always and Merry Christmas! I found this somewhere online and printed it on fun Christmas paper!

I leave a Christmas card with some candy
This was God speaking to me!! We have had some challenges with our mail carrier who does not deliver and gets frustrated when someone parks in front of my house. And when we go up to get our mair when they are at another house she tells us about it. So I am doing this today!! God speaking to me directly through this one!! Thanks so much!!
Our girls greeted our mail carrier and wished her a Merry Christmas. We gave her a Starbucks gift card for a warm drink, candle and a colored picture.
Great idea!!! So thoughtful
#12DaysOfChristmasKindness #ListenLoveRepeat Day 9 This has been an awesome team effort in our home. Our daughter typed the post and my husband took the picture. Our local Schnucks store had the items in the mug on SALE. It has been another day full of God’s Blessings. REJOICE This is the day that the LORD has made. It has been a blessing to participate Karen and Katy
