Make someone’s day. Send a handwritten note. You may even receive one in return.
I have been sending notes since I could sign my name. When I first started sending notes, my mother would write them for me, and I would sign them. Once I learned how to spell, I was on my own.
At a young age, my brothers and I would send thank you notes and birthday cards to friends and family. To this day, my brother Michael and I still practice what our mother taught us.
It is not a chore, but a joy to send these notes. Michael, the artist, has even sent me a piece of cardboard that he drew on, addressed and mailed. My sister-in-law has taught my niece and nephew to send thank you notes. Nothing brings me more joy than to receive a hand-drawn card and note from Luca and August. I display and enjoy these cards until I date and save them in a designated bin. I will share all their masterpieces with them when they are older.
There is nothing like that personalized note, handwritten on a card or piece of stationery specifically chosen for the recipient.
It doesn’t matter whether the purpose of the note is a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary or just to let someone know that you are thinking of them. They are all wonderful.
I am a loyal customer of Hallmark, who offers all types of styles for every occasion. For very special celebrations or my annual Christmas cards, I shop at Papyrus. Their cards and stationery are worth every penny. I enjoy finding unique and beautiful stationery and always have a few options on hand at all times.
Think of someone you would love to receive a card from and send him or her one today. A simple, thoughtful message is perfect, even if you don’t have the time or want to put the pressure on yourself of writing a long note.
