I received another cute horse postcard via Postcrossing 🙂 This one’s from Elżbieta (Elizabeth). It traveled 454 miles (731 km) from Poland to Germany.

This is the envelope I sent my 26th postcrossing card in. It went to Janusz in Poland. He prefers to receive blank cards in envelopes and since I don’t like sending away plain white envelopes I did a little decorating. I’d also show you the postcard I stuck inside of it but unfortunately I forgot to scan it and didn’t notice until I had already glued the envelope shut I know that it was one very similar to the ones I posted here.
It’s Sunday, so I’ll show you not one, but TWO of my postcrossing cards : )
This is one of my favorites! It’s from Monika in Poland and it had to travel 365 miles (588 km) before I got to find it in my mailbox. On its front you can see a Polish folk-art papercut. I love it – it’s so colorful!
Monika also send me a great proverb:
“Co cie nie zabije, to cie wzmocni.”
“What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.”
“Was dich nicht umbringt macht dich stärker.”
It’s a quote from the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in a slightly varied form. The original quote reads:
“Co mnie nie zabije, to mnie wzmocni.”
“What doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger.”
“Was mich nicht umbringt macht mich stärker.”
And here is the second card I promised you at the beginning of this post. I received it on the same day as the one from Monika. This card is from Egon in Slovenia. It was my first and has been the only one from Slovenia for me so far. As you can see it’s one of those beautiful village-and-landscape-cards.
How do you like the postcards? Have I already told you how much I love receiving postcards!?!
Well, that’s all for today ; )
This card was sent to me by Joanna from Warsaw, Poland’s capital city. The image is so cute! Everytime I look at it I feel good and that is exactly what Joanna had intended to achieve with the card: “This card is about happiness”, she wrote and it certainly is for me.
More so, I think, there is no denying that happiness is one of the most important things in life. Everyday we search for new pleasures and sometimes work jobs we geniuenly hate to earn the money we believe we need to lead a contented life. But money can’t buy us happiness.
The greatest supply of happines lies with the people we love and the people who care about us: Our family, our friends.
Joanna’s card has surely made me happy by dropping into my mailbox on October 5th after travelling 473 miles (761 km) in 12 days.
So, has anybody made you happy today? Have you made anyone happy?
