Logan has some big dreams at four years old, and his excitement over a promising career as a postal delivery man is making people smile! When he grows up, he wants to be a mailman. He practices every day by checking the mail and begging his family members to send him post cards. It turns out that his excitement is contagious, and when their actual mail man made a super special delivery! The letter from “Mr. Mailman” is as adorable as you’d expect:
Hello Little Mailman,
Sorry I’m typing this, I’m afraid if I wrote it by hand you’d never be able to read it. I only met you once. It was cold outside and I was running late. You were sitting on the porch waiting for me to come around. You were wearing a tee-shirt and USPS baseball cap and it was probably 30 degrees, but you didn’t care, you just wanted to see the mailman. I don’t know why, but it meant a lot to me, little dude. Today is my last day delivering mail. I really enjoyed it, but I went to school for something else and I found a job that fits me better. And there’s always a chance I’ll be back. Life’s funny that way. There’s a job called a Postal Inspector that I’m really interested in, but they don’t hire people too often. It’s like being a policeman, but for letters and packages. I promise you’ll be the first one I tell if I get that job! Anyway, I just wanted to give you a gift so you don’t freeze the next time you’re waiting for the next regular mailman to make his way around the block. And don’t worry if you decide it’s not what you want to do when you grow up. I haven’t been working that long and I’ve already been a mailman, a mechanic, a cashier and a carpenter. Just find your thing and don’t lose the spark.
From your #1 fan,
Wes Winter ”
The gift? A fluffy winter hat with the postal service logo on the front! Logan loved his present from the mailman so much, he even wore it to bed! Encouraging children to follow their dreams is important, and this mailman was able to help in a bigger way than he perhaps realized.
