|I probably should have wiped down the table before taking the picture, but this is real life folks!|
Today I got a lovely thank-you card from a sweet friend (along with a plate of cookies...BONUS) and when I read her words, I cried. I thought about sharing them here on my blog, but for now I just want to keep them to myself. I am going to put the note in my purse and keep it there as a reminder for when I need a little pick me up.
I also realized that we had not checked mail in a couple days so I sent Daniel off to the mailbox. When he returned there were cards for all us from Kevin. I love getting mail from my love. He sent me a cute little Halloween card with such loving words. I will never tire of seeing his love for me displayed in his handwriting.
I love little tangible reminders of friendship and love. I know people, including myself, love the convenience of social media, texting and email but there is still no replacement for a simple, handwritten note.
In the past two weeks I have received over five handwritten thank-you notes, not including the two I mentioned earlier and my soul has truly been filled.
When was the last time you wrote someone a thank you note or a thinking of you card? Is there someone in your life who might benefit from some simple words of affirmation?
