    I, too, love to shop for the perfect card and I’m a card hoarder. I hate to get rid of cards that my husband, children and grands give me.

      I have a drawer full of cards I have gotten over the years. I enjoy going back through to recall the memories they hold for me.

    Gregory,

    I read a Guideposts article about the lost art of writing and sending letters. I do not know the author’s name but saved this quote, “…it should be no surprise that I believe in the power of letters. You can hear someone very clearly through the written word. They might share the secrets of their faith or their heart. A letter can restore a relationship or change the world.”

    In our fast-paced, technology-based world, I’d hate to think we are losing the art of writing because we only operate in sound bites and short responses. Letters are soul-freeing!

    I hope we all continue to put words to paper and continue the great tradition of writing to each other – our hearts, our dreams, our goals, and desires unspoken to others.

    Thank you for YOUR words!

      You’re welcome. I came close to stopping into a Hallmark store at lunch while on a repair all for someone. A written word to someone is special because of the time and care it takes to write with pen and paper.

    I too love greeting cards and the joy on someones face when the see that you’ve thought about them. I hope that never goes away.

      I hope card giving with stands the electronic age and that the younger generation can feel an appreciation in the giving and receiving of a special card.

    Hi! This is a lovely post. I love to keep cards too. Old, new and homemade. Whenever, I’m down, I read the old cards. Yes, all we truly want is to be loved unconditionally by God, our husbands, children, parents etc. Thanks for sharing.

      Marie,

      Thanks for the reply. I keep cards that I get from people because I love the memories they bring back to me when I look at them again.

    What a beautiful card with an equally as beautiful sentiment. I often take a long time to select cards because I always want them to say what it is I truly feel for the person I am sending them too. My entire family knows when they read my card I read it and mean it as well…

      I also take my time to find just the right card. There will be times when I read through 20 or more before I find something I like.

    I love giving and receiving cards! My husband wrote me a really nice note and put it in a card last year. I still carry the note in my wallet!

      That is awesome. It is good to hear others like sending/receiving cards as much as I do.
