Handwritten Notes

As communication has changed this past decade, handwritten cards and letters have become more and more rare. I have only 2 ‘love letters’ from my husband that are handwritten and have only received a few ‘just because’ notes the past few years.

In spite of changing communication though, my love for sending cards and letters remains. There is something much more personal in taking the time to write a simple note of thanks or sending random ‘just because’ notes to friends, family and even acquaintances.

I love searching for and purchasing {and sometimes making} cards. I have a card box full of a variety of different cards to send for different occasions that I keep stocked. The latest addition to my card box are DaySpring’s Colors of Compassion cards:

These Colors of Compassion cards are beautiful with lovely pictures and graphics as well as touching messages within the cards.

They also benefit Compassion International, an organization dear to my family since we sponsor a little girl in Ethiopia through Compassion! DaySpring is donating 6% of sales of the Colors of Compassion cards to Compassion’s Child Survival Program. On the back of each card is information about Compassion International.

I love that these cards can be used to encourage the people they are sent to as well as benefit the babies and mother’s of Child Survival Programs!

And, within days of receiving the cards, I used several of them, sending them to some women I appreciate in my life. 

Do you love sending cards?

  1. I have a 96 year-old pen-pal! He was the organist at the theater I worked at when we lived in Milwaukee and he and I have kept in touch through "snail mail!" I write to him about what we do, send pictures of the family and we share recipes! He is a dear friend and I am so glad we have kept in touch!

  2. I just read your last few posts and just wanted to say glad you are planning to homeschool. I starting
    homeschooling in 1996, and now my daughter plans on homeschooling my two grandchildren (they are 2 and 3). Love all your posts – very inspiring!
