Last week, I ran into a girl I've known for quite a while, but I don't think I've ever spent a full hour talking to her...and in a chilly parking garage of all places! What a GIFT she was to me that day, and I wanted to tell her so.
Usually, I'd fire off a quick "Loved seeing you! Made my day!" email, and I'm sure that would have been fine, but taking the time to put a few heart-felt sentences down on paper (I'm a paper snob...must be heavy-weight and cottony feeling) added such substance to my sentiments. And each time I seal an envelope (the old fashioned lick-and-stick way), it feels like I'm sealing a little gift...a gift that says, "you're worth it!"
And then there are the simple pleasures of peeling and sticking a stamp (not the liberty bell kind...so not cute) and slipping that little gift into the mail slot! Such a satisfying feeling!
So how about you, Dear Reader...what inspires you to send a handwritten note? I'd love to know! Leave a comment at the end of this post by Sunday, April 18, and you might win two sets of my favorite watercolor cards. Want two chances to win? Leave a comment below and on my last post!
