I write and send notes often. I send cards for birthdays and Valentine’s Day and Father’s Day and sometimes I even remember to send them for no reason at all. It is in my blood. My mother does the same thing. I cannot simply send an e-mail. Even after you tell me it is OK not to send a card, you’re probably still getting one. Especially if it is a thank you card. I believe that handwriting a note is one of the easiest and most meaningful ways to show someone you care. I wish I had the time to send more.
I have never heard of Whimsy, but you can bet I will be sending them an order or two in the future. How cute are these? Thanks to CG for including them in your post today!
Now, I am at my desk looking for excuses to write someone a note and I hop over to Gmail to see if there is any “noteworthy” news 🙂 to write about and I get this e-mail from my Aunt in KS.
Aunt Kate, as referenced in the e-mail, is my mom and O’s Mimi (Grandma). I will translate since the scan is not that clear. “Dear Uncle John and Aunt Char, Thank you for the cars and the puzzle too. I had fun at dinner too. See you soon. Love O” The only thing I did was translate it in the margin and mail it. Apparently, it made an impression because Aunt Char sent it to everyone she knew on e-mail. I am so proud of my 5-year-old! I think I will just call it a night and head to bed with a big ‘ol happy face that another note-writer is born. Night, all.
