Special Delivery

 
I saw this posted on Facebook today
And thought to myself what a wonderful way
To share a sercy with those on their route
At this time of year when they're so busy out
Show a bit of kindness, brighten someone's day
 
Note: My family does most of our shopping and gift exchange via Amazon.com, and I couldn't begin to count the number of small packages being sent back and forth between us via UPS.  Delivery drivers work long hours this season, and I found this such a wonderful idea... something we all could do as a way of showing our appreciation.

This was written for In Other Words where Patricia has asked us to  
write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word
sercy: noun, (of Southern origin)
small unexpected gift, surprise “just because” gift
 
 
 Come and share five lines about a sercy with us!

  1. That is a special idea! Maybe i could leave something special for our mail carriers (we never have the same one two weeks in a row!), since almost everything we get is just by mail.

    1. I agree, it fit the word perfectly! So often we overlook the simplest means of saying thank you.

    1. We get a bunch of packages from UPS this time of year, so I loved this idea as a way of brightening up their day a little!

  4. What a lovely idea!! They surely must have long hours, and up here they have to drive often in terrible and dangerous conditions!

    1. It's such an easy thing to do and I just know it would bring smiles to the faces of the delivery people who have a hard job this time of year.
