Happy Greetings.

Don't you just love it when someone takes the time to send you a greeting through the mail? In this day and age with emails, text messages, and Instant messaging it is so easy to lose sight of the thrill of a good old fashioned greeting happily delivered by your neighborhood postman. I get such a thrill (second only to the thrill of the squeal of the UPS truck!) when beneath the stack of bills, advertisements and junk mail, I find a greeting card size envelope lovingly addressed and decorated especially for me. It just makes you feel special when you know that someone took the time to make a handmade card perfectly tailored just for you and your particular situation.

Oddly enough it means even more to me when I know that the sender has braved the perils of their local Walmart or other store to find the perfect card just to send to little 'ol' me. You know what a feat it is to try and find a good card at any of these stores. You mosey up and down the aisles, flipping through cards and going something like this: "No, not that one. Nope, that one neither. Oh, that's cute..oh its for a boy. What about this one? Ha! that's funny but she might be offended. Hmmm....which one?" So there you go again up and down the aisle and around the corner like a race car circling the track yet again.

Whatever way you choose to send a greeting to a friend, family member, teacher or neighbor make it special by handwriting a quick thought or sentiment and personalizing the envelope as little or as much as you like. You never know, by doing so you might just be the one bright spot that made a difference in your recipient's day.


  1. I don't even remember the last ;etter or card I got - seems like email and e-cards have taken over
