I hosted a swap last month. The number of participants was few so everyone mailed the cards to each other. I didn't expect to get any cards from anyone because I only sent e-mail reminders. I didn't have to do any of the sorting and mailing back that is usually associated with a swap. I didn't receive a card from all swappers but I did receive a few.
Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
