Say hello to another beautiful Monday, so glad to see your face.
I know I am a wee bit too excited for another work week but I am just trying to get some practice in for my challenge this week. I want to let a few people know how much I appreciate them. You know, I buy all this cute stationary and tons of cute cards like a paper hoarder. Then I just sit and look at them, it is quite possible that sometimes I rub them across my face but I never actually use them. That’s gotta change today.
Feeling appreciated is one of the strongest human desires, but that appreciation is not often found in a text message. Let’s think about how many emails and texts we have sent in the last week. Now when was the last time we sent a real handwritten letter? I’ll hang my head in shame now thanks.
The craziest part is a handwritten letter costs less than a dollar to send, and can be kept forever. I just never take the time to actually write one. Sometimes I long for my younger years when the greatest thing in life was to get a letter from my penpal….not quite sure why I gave that feeling up.
My challenge calls for one part cute card (or printer paper folded hamburger style) and two parts gratitude. I am going to handwrite a few of these notes today to some specials folks, the ones that I don’t tell enough how much they mean to me.
Do you still handwrite letters?
Did you have a penpal growing up?
Where do you buy cute paper products…like I need more.
