I hate checking mail! Not email; the old postman, two bills and a million flyers, snail mail! Having dodged it for weeks, after much struggle today, I dragged my feet to the mailbox around the corner and came back home with a 4 inch thick stack of multi-colored shiny pieces of paper, 99.9% of which will end up in garbage moments later. Somebody needs to take a satellite picture of me holding all this paper waste and send it to Al Gore!
Anyways, after all the tearing and shredding, at the bottom of the stack I found a small yellow envelope with our names on it. I turned it over and it said “If undelivered return to: Uroos Ali …” followed by an address. I opened the envelope, and inside I found the cutest little card congratulating us on the birth of our little one! Now, we’ve meet Uroos twice, one for the initial client meeting, and second when she came by to sign everything for her wedding this December. But the fact that she actually kept up with what was going on in our lives, and took the time to go out, find a card and mail it, means a LOT to us! I immediately went upstairs, woke Mehreen up and started waving the card in her face.
So Uroos and Khalid, we couldn’t just send you a lame email saying thank you, which you’ll still get. Your card gets its own entire blog post!
Oh, btw, Afroz turned a month old today!
