Do you write letters? Snail mail letters?
Of course you don’t, and neither do I.
But I used to!
When I first got married, I sat on the couch several times a week, watched tv, and wrote letter after letter.
That was then.
It’s all different now. I’m busier, my attention span is shorter, and let’s face it…I’m lazier.
I text, I email, and occasionally I make phone calls.
That’s why Hallmark gave me a gentle nudge recently with their Get Carded Challenge, and it reminded me how wonderful it is for people to get a handwritten snail mail note from time to time.
Just Because Cards
Hallmark sent me a beautiful selection of “just because” cards, and each day for 7 days, I mailed one to someone special.
I mailed my first card to my sister, whom I adore but hardly ever get to talk with. I wanted her to know that she’s always in my thoughts.
The next card I mailed to my mom, who’s had a tough time dealing with my move across the country. I love you, mommy.
I also mailed some to several friends whom I miss and really wanted to reconnect with, and one to my ex-husband (my forever pal).
People love snail mail!
As a result, I received phone calls galore, and one friend even mailed me a card in return! The cards gave them joy, and in return, I felt even greater joy.
I loved this so much that I’m going to keep on surprising people with random cards from now on.
