Yesterday I received a letter from my dear friend Cathy and I once again realized: Letters make my day.
Email and phone is great, but there is nothing more personal than a letter. I used to have so many penpals when I was a teenager and I still write with Ã‚Â± 20 people on a more or less regular basis. It’s just like a special treat every day when there is a letter in the mailbox.
And you know, sometimes it doesn’t have to be a many pages-long letter. Sometimes, a simple card will do ;)
[I don’t know how to tell you that sending a little note to someone you care about can make their day, if you don’t see me “waving with the proverbial fence post” by now…;)]
Ha, don’t you love this literal translation from German?? The only phrase in English that I know is “to give a broad hint”, but I like the German phrase much better.
So, get moving, buy some cute cards and send them to someone you love… I sure will send some more cards out by the weekend, before they raise the postage in the US again. They just did that like a year ago and now it’s going up another two cents starting Monday.
