“The Story Behind the Mail”: a compendium that tells the stories behind the letters from several organizations within the author’s mailbox along with gifts and other immemorial items. “The Story Behind the Mail” is the creation of published author M. J. Washington, a mother of three and a grandmother of seven and a member of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas.
Washington shares, “Sweet Mother of Christ, Hallelujah! Seems like an avalanche has rolled up to my door. The mailbox was stuffed with letters from several different organizations and a couple of catalogs, and being a Tuesday, there was also a wad of junk mail.
“Remembering the thick manila envelope, I’d received from the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) in mid-January with an assortment of gifts—a nice tablet-size calculator, all-occasion cards, address labels, a couple of notepads, a calendar, even a gift-bag. My conscience just wouldn’t let me rest after receiving all these cool little gifts. I just had to send a donation to help with postage and handling. I think that’s what caused the avalanche of mail that landed at my door.
“Deciding right then to keep a count of all incoming mail, I began to write down the names and contents of each envelope, thinking it couldn’t possibly be too many more after this shipment. Boy was I ever wrong. I started receiving cards of all kinds, prayer booklets, prayer relics, rosaries, crucifixes, and medals.
“Besides the letters, the phone calls started, so I started listing them too. Within a couple of weeks, I had accumulated several pages of organizations requesting help either by phone or postal service. And the brain being the peculiar organ that it is—my brain anyway—it gets restless at times for more activity. Firing up the computer, I started a real list of all the charitable organizations I hear from daily and decided to make my list an open project.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, M. J. Washington’s new book is the culmination of the author’s collection of letters from charitable organizations that show the quaintness of life and the richness of humanity.
This book also shares the author’s phone calls and other requests that keep life interesting and worthwhile.
