With the internet being so accessible and FAST the art of letter writing has become a lost art. But, I feel it becomes more personable when the recipient receives a handwritten letter or note card. Before my Grandmother's passing a few months ago I would send her cards twice a week (She LOVED receiving mail). One Mother's Day I remember sending her a CD of Frank Sinatra music. At the beginning of the CD I recorded a message of LOVE for her. I can still hear the gratitude in her voice. ☺
Why do we no longer sit for a second, express our feelings on paper for those we truly love?
I know there are many out there who are into the art, because stationary stores are booming these days. So, my challenge to whomever may read this is: Grab a sheet of paper and a pen and tell the one you love how much they mean to you. I love sending "Gratitude Cards" to my daughter, mom, sisters, nieces and nephews. It's just my way of saying "I'm grateful to have you in my life."
Get creative if the urge hits you! Right a quote, a song or even a poem if you like. The object is to surprise them with another way of knowing you love them. In the end it will make you feel all warm inside. You know that feeling you get when you watch "Polar Express" while drinking cocoa during Christmas season?
That's the warm feeling I speak of. ☺
