With technology devices so prevalent now, I wonder if kids will grow up without passing notes in class, creating cards or even hand-writing a letter. I suppose every generation feels some loss of tradition and this is probably ours, but this is a big one for so many reasons… at least to me.
Lack of personal contact.
Although letters and cards are often mailed, there’s an authentic feeling that the person touched that paper and wrote on it with their hand. It’s sincere and took a bit of effort. Today the information is translated to 1s and 0s and moved through cyberspace. It just doesn’t feel the same
Artifact of love.
Who doesn’t love a token of love they can take with them? I still have some valentines, letters and cards that were given to me over the years. Someone took time to craft it just for me. No copy and paste.What I treasure even more is when I get a card or letter for no reason. It’s not my birthday or a big day, just someone sharing love. These are acts of love to me and often show up when I most need them. When I am in the dumps, creating cards or writing letters helps me raise my compassion and love for others and myself. Do yourself a favor, especially when you’re feeling low, by offering authentic connection by crafting a card or a letter to someone you love – mother, friend, sister, spouse, child – whoever you want to express your love and gratitude for.
