It seems each of us rely more and more these days on our "smart" devices to communicate with friends and associates. I use them constantly myself, and it is truly a wonderful tool. With all its convenience, technological communication can lack that personal touch that most of us appreciate so much.
Do you save wonderful notes and cards that special people take the time to send to you through the mail? I know how great it makes me feel to get even the smallest note addressed to little ole me... I am lucky enough to have thoughtful friends who often surprise me with delightful remembrances. It totally makes my day. Here are just a few that have arrived here within recent weeks...
Several months ago I made a fun little "fat book" full of pockets to hold these treasures. My book is already so chubby it needs to go on a major diet... The funny thing is, I love it when my hand-made books barely close... It's more fun that way!
I found a link this week on FACEBOOK that caught my attention.
The page is called 52 WEEKS OF MAIL.
Here is part of the information off their page.
I love this idea and have made the commitment to send at least one piece of handwritten mail
every week this year... and beyond. You never know what your note could mean to the person who receives it. It could arrive at the moment it was most needed.
As a teacher for many years, I want to do my part to see that some of the "social graces" of our generation are not lost forever. Some of the older traditions cannot be improved upon.
Write a note and send it in the mail this week... Make it a habit.
You could really make a difference.
