Love cards 💕
As I was reaching for some stuff in some boxes, I found this lovely card that has a special meaning to me 💌
I had just turned 18, a day like today (yes, today it’s my birthday and yes, I’m a Virgo, a bit of a control freak 🤪🤣) still living in Peru but missing my dad who was already here in Japan 🇯🇵 In those years, communication was limited to international phone calls and letters that would take weeks to get to the destination. There was no social media like nowadays so forget about texting someone like we do now at the speed of light ⚡️
This card is so special because of it but foremost, because I still feel the love, appreciation and a bit of sadness whenever I go to every word of the message 💕
So the card goes like this ☝🏼
“Little daughter: 👧🏻
From the distance, I wish you a happy birthday.
Now you’re a grown up but for me you’ll always be my little girl who used to play with me, do you remember? And when I called you, you answered ‘here I am daddy!’👧🏻
Well, I hope you have a good time with everybody there and don’t be sad because I’m far away from you. I always think of you all and miss you so much but life it’s like this, better times will come and we’ll be together again 😊
Lots of hugs and kisses 😘
Your daddy 👨🏻
I can’t help to contain the tears whenever I read this and at the same time be grateful for those times when the little gestures like a simple card, a letter, a phone call meant the world for some people.
I really wish that we are able to cultivate that kind of love these days. Life goes so fast! Most of the time we don’t even see what we are missing around us.
Live and enjoy the present because that’s all we have now. Count your blessings, find beauty in every single thing because those are the things that will stay with us forever 💕❤️
