Hello and Happy Friday!! I have a TA-DA to show you tonight. But first I want to talk about a dying art form. The hand written letter, or note card. It does seem to be a thing of the past for many. After all, you can shoot off an email in seconds. And an E-Vite can be sent without the cost of postage. A text message is fast and probably the most common source of communication these days, particularly among the younger set. But what about the hand written note? Taking the time to select a pretty note card, and then with pen in hand, forming the thoughts you wish to convey, writing them in your best script, sealing it, then placing a hand written address on the front, postage in upper right hand corner, and your return address in the upper left. I love to write a note of thanks, or just to say hello. A note to let someone know that their time spent in hosting a celebration, no matter how simple or grand, was appreciated by me. A note to say thank you for thinking of me. A note to say you care. Just in this past week, I have received several of these beautiful notes.
I certainly hope that the fine art of the hand written note will never be lost. It is so special to receive such a heartfelt message. Just a few words, from someone you care about. They took the time to think of you. I know that when I receive a hand written note I feel special. I hope that when I write a note to someone, they feel special. Next time you have the option, take the time to write out your thoughts with pen and paper. The person that receives it will be so appreciative. I know I am.
