More than just a card!

It seems like the art of letter writing and card sending has almost disappeared. It is much easier for people to text and email, than to pick up paper and pen. Then  you have the added cost of stamps (which is crazy) so, I guess in some ways I understand but I have always...always, loved making and sending cards. I also love getting them. To me, they are more than just a card that came in the mail, it was a note from a dear friend or family who loves me and supports me. Knowing that they took the time to send it to me...means a lot.

I however probably send too many cards ( if that is possible ), Jeff said half our pay checks go to the Post Office. See it's that type of attitude that is hurting the Postal Service and the letter writing business!  :)

Anyway, there are many of you that read my blog that I do not know personally but if I did... I would probably send you a card and try to support you through the tough times.  I would personally send you a card, just you to let  you know that I care. Anything is easier to handle if you know that you have a great support team with you.

So even though I might not ever send you a personal card or letter, here are a couple of messages from some cards that I have received throughout the years that I will share with you today, just in case you need them!

"When we're dealing with a difficult time in our lives, like you are right now, it's easy to feel like we've lost the light along our path.

We wonder why these things happen, and no one can give us an answer-but I hope it helps to remember that these moments are a part of life... they teach us to treasure the happy times and appreciate the little things.

I don't know why things are the way they are for you right now, but I want you to know...even through the rough times, just like through the good times, I am here for you... and you can count on me!"  ~ M. Ramirez


Listens and tries to understand (even when you're not making much sense!),

Laughs with you , not at you (unless, of course, you do something really silly! )

Encourages your crazy dreams,

Makes ordinary days seem extraordinary (or, at least, not so boring!)

Picks you up when you're feeling down__

And cares, and shows it in so many ways!

Thanks for being that kind of friend to me!
