Now in its 4th year this week is 'National Thinking of You week', a greeting card industry initiative to encourage us all to think about sending a card to someone just to say hello!...I miss you!... love you!....I'm thinking of you! Make someone laugh, be supportive in time of trouble, wish them better....kiss & make up!
I hear some cynical mutterings!....but this really isn't just about selling more cards! It's now been scientifically proven that receiving a handwritten card makes people feel special and can really help to stave off feelings of loneliness & isolation. In this digital age we can often forget how much it means to receive a real card or letter through the post instead of a text, or email or Facebook message! (Although they are lovely too!) Sending a card however is a rather special way of communicating that we care and it feels really good to send them too! Staying connected in meaningful ways with friends & family is so important to me and encouraging us to take the time to consider others and what we'd like to say to them is I think a wonderful idea.....AND I love the fact that cards from my shop will be sent with love to help make somebody's day just that little bit brighter!
It might be a small gesture but one that could make a big difference! Let's all spread a little happiness....send a handwritten card and raise a smile!
