Myrtle Monday Brought to You by Lela

Blowing the Shofar by the Wailing Wall, Jerusalem

Lela got around. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. This is one of many postcards in Myrtle’s prized collection that was sent from her friend, Lela. It comes from Jerusalem circa 1972, and I’m not sure what I love most about it — the photo, the fact that Lela says she’s trying as many local foods as she can or the colorful stamp. Perhaps it’s the clue that Lela was an adventurous traveler and a thoughtful friend to send reports from all over the world back to Myrtle in her rural hometown.

    This post brought me to tears. I had the opportunity to pray at the Kotel (Wailing Wall) and the experience defies words. I so enjoy getting to know Myrtle and her friends through her postcards. This one in particular is special for me. Thanks for sharing.

    I sent two postcards today– such a fun (and easy) way to stay connected to folks. Your Myrtle moments make me appreciate Monday’s just a little more.
