It’s true. There is just a special feeling when you open the mailbox and find a tangible message from a dear friend or faraway family member.
Sure, our digital world has made it easier to stay in touch; we can talk, send an email or text. And staying connected is so important. However, too often our digital communication feels fleeting. Look at a real card as a way to leave a record of your thoughts and feelings. When we send a card, it is a physical memento of a moment in a time, a thought that was captured and saved.
Keeping cards and letters can also help us keep a record of our lives. We can look back and remember. We can share them with our children and grandchildren. We can touch them, and the memories come flooding back.
Imagine sharing those memories with someone you love. You can send a simple, heartfelt message in a card, and your friends and loved ones can experience that “divine” joy of opening the mailbox to find your thoughtfulness waiting. Follow your promptings and send a card today.
