It feels rare to receive something for free in the mail these days, but a couple of days ago, it happened. Even so, I can’t keep the package for myself. It will soon be on its way to Texas to a dear friend of mine who recently delivered her second child.
(And if you are the said friend, then please stop reading. It will spoil the surprise. lol.)
What is in the package, you ponder? It is a few Spark Cards that a New Jersey-ian named Hillary is sending out for FREE. She hopes the cards will encourage conversations between other mothers, and then leave them behind for others to find and use. Spreading the free gift, if you will. Have you heard of Hillary from the, Longest Shortest Time? Her podcasts range from humorous to heartfelt and will make the days that you feel totally insane---sane, after all. Her primary message is that no matter what phase of motherhood you’re in, you’re not alone in the trials you may be going through.
If you’re interested in her podcast, you can easily find her on iTunes. I use this app for my podcasts.
If you want your own spark cards delivered to your mailbox, then you can find the form here.
If you want to know more about why she does what she does, then go here.
Just for the record, I don’t know Hillary, and she has no idea that I’m writing this. I just think she is cool. :)
