It is something more important. It is a thank you note. And a note of encouragement.
It is a thank you to @arjantupan for sending me a handwritten thank you note. Not the thank you – it really was unnecessary. But for handwriting it.
In this age of technology mediated communication, where sending out messages is as easy as pushing a button, it was so nice to know that someone had taken the trouble of choosing a card, writing a message by hand and heading out to the post office to send it.
It’s like having a home made meal, instead of picking up fast food [note to self: I need to go easy on the food comparisons – yesterday, I managed to compare @markschaefer to a sausage!]
That leads me to the encouragement. I would like others to feel the same.
I went out today and bought a card to send to someone in the US.
Sure, it will take longer for the recipient to know how much I appreciated something that he did. But that’s OK.
Can you do the same? Please.
