I have a stash.
A stash of notes & cards from special people who have blessed my life.
Some are tied with ribbon from one person, others are in a box from a certain time & place. All are treasured.
The beauty of a written note is only made the sweeter by our fast paced lives filled with opportunities to quickly send a smiley face, thumbs up or other short cut to communication.
With the option to text, the decision to take pen to paper is monumental. As such, it is appreciated all the more.
I love that we can all communicate easily, effectively and with people we may never have come across in daily life via our phones & laptops.
I also love & appreciate seeing the handwriting of a friend on a paper envelope in my mailbox.
The anticipation of opening the envelope. Then being greeted with the thoughtful words of a busy friend who took the time. The time to slow down just for me.
If I could send you each a note in the mail this is what it would say…
Hello Dear Friend,
Just a note to say, I am feeling grateful that you are in my life.
It is wonderful to be able to share our interests, creativity and laughter together.
Thank you for spending time with me.
On second thought, maybe I would take out the “just”. As taking the time to let someone know how you feel is never “just”.
Whether a hello from afar, a thank you or wish for a special occasion, a hand written note will always be welcomed and appreciated.
To help you take the time or to give a gift, I have created a set of 12 floral note cards. These are 12 of the photos I took while creating my book.
Each set is packaged for gifting as a set.
The 12 cards, each with a different image, are tied with ribbon, adorned with a rose and slid into a cellophane bag.
If you’d like you can order a set of my note cards HERE.
Whether on these notecards or simple white paper, take the time this week to send a friend a little note in the mail. You’ll both be the better for it.
