Time and changes

stamp-container

As time goes by, things change. We all know that — it’s a basic fact of life. But we don’t always accept it in our deep‐down inner‐selves. Somehow we expect things to remain the same. Relationships, our children, our home, our life. Even if it’s not a pleasing thing, when it changes, some of us get upset. Some people thrive on change and others hate it. You’re probably somewhere in the middle.

Anyhow, remember lick‐em postage stamps? As we were clearing out my mom’s stuff, I came across this little stamp case — good for holding about 10 stamps in a compact secure way in your purse or (probably not) pocket.

In that case, change was good. Adhesive‐backed stamps are superior in every way I can think of.

What coming change in your life is one you hate? Love?

  1. Except if your a stamp collector. There may be a a way to remove adhesive‐backed stamps without ripping the stamp and envelope (I don’t know of it). But when I collected stamps (back in the day) I simply steamed of the stamp and if was ready for storing and the envelope was still intact.

  2. I was going to make exactly the same comment. I used to love soaking the stamps off letters, and saving them.
    I guess I don’t get a lot of letters these days… just emails.
