I do like to share special things here on my blog, like this story today of Valerie, who was trying to see the beauty in their family losing a dear family friend, Matt.

I had no idea that the USPS (United States Post Office) took these letters to heart. How sweet their response is when this letter showed up. (Of course, I whited out Valerie’s address.)

Dear God …

The story goes like this …

Dear Valerie …

Whoever Jackie is, who wrote back to sweet Valerie, she is indeed an angel in disguise. She has a high calling … a sweet job, in replying to these letters!

Pear French Toast

Awhile back, I made a delicious Stuffed Pear French Toast for a brunch that I hosted.

I love this recipe, because like most breakfast casseroles, you make ahead, and pull out of the fridge to pop into the oven the morning of!

Serve with 100% maple syrup or a dusting of powdered sugar. It’s really moist and sweet!
