When was the last time that you received a handwritten note from someone? Do you remember how the note made you feel? In this technology savvy world we are quick to text, send an email, or message on social media. We have forgotten the art of sending the person you love a card or a note “just because”. We don’t send Christmas cards, get well wishes, thank you cards, or thinking about you cards, sometimes even birthday cards are forgotten.
I remember when my son was in the Neonatal Intensive care Unit (NICU) during Christmas. On Christmas day someone gave us an umbrella, a devotion book, and a rattle for the baby with a note that said, “I know that you can’t come home for Christmas and it is a difficult time, but we are praying for you and your little miracle.” At that point I did not care about the gifts. What touched my heart was the message that came with the gifts. Someone cared to give me a handwritten note.
This Christmas think about writing a note to those around us that we see daily as well as anyone that we have not spoken to in awhile. That note can uplift someone’s day.
