Happiness and The Secret Post Club

In case you didn't know, the lovely Heather from Notes from Lapland is running a Secret Post Club. Each month you are given the details of someone else in the club and you send them a gift, likewise each month someone sends you a gift. What a fabulous idea! It's not too late to join either.

I sent my recipient a gift at the beginning of March and I haven't heard whether she received it. I'm a bit worried it got lost in the post. Perhaps she hated it? Eek!

Anyway, I received my gift last week from the wonderful Susan K Mann. She sent me a lovely letter explaining each thoughtful gift. She sent me a memo cube, some bubble bath for sensitive skin, balloons and chocolate buttons for the boys (and me) and a book called Be Happy.

Be Happy. Yes! Life's too short to be miserable!

I love this quote from Be Happy. It's by Gretta Palmer and sums up the Secret Post Club for me.

"Happiness is a by-product of an effort to make someone else happy"
