Friday was one of those days, not a great day, but not a bad day. I was in a little bit of a funk when a beautiful display of flowers arrived from Cheryl Orlowski of Cha-Lor Flowers, a lovely woman I had worked with this past fall. The flowers were breathtaking, but it was her note that really choked me up.
It was such a nice feeling, receiving a note like that. Handwritten letters are becoming more and more rare today, which is exactly why I find them so important. Instead of shooting a text, or sending an email, you can make a special statement with a small piece of paper and a few strokes of a pen.
So this year instead of running to Hallmark, or making a grand gesture, try and send a sweet handwritten token to the person you are thinking about. It can really brighten their day.
