Passing Notes

Technology is awesome.  Everyone that knows me knows that I am beyond connected every hour of the day unless I am working out (and even then I usually have my phone attached to my body) or sleeping.  With all of that connected-ness, it's easy to send someone a text or message on Facebook/Twitter and "stay connected".  Don't get me wrong I think that the FB has brought more people back into my life that I had lost touch with but is that the most meaningful communication?  I think not.  Remember in high school when you used to write long winded notes, fold them in intricate patterns, draw a masterpiece on the outside and the hand them off to your BFF?  Let's do that but in the adult version!

I love of all things stationary, I have boxes and boxes of stationary monogrammed and otherwise.  So I decided a couple of weeks ago that I was going to start writing notes.  I had some thank you notes to write for the kindness that people showed me when my great grandfather died once those were finished I felt the urge to write more.  I wrote some much needed notes to important people in my life, to let them know how important/influential they are even though I haven't seen them in a while.  Handwritten notes are the best they mean so much more than a text or an e-mail, it shows that you care enough about the person to take the time to write out and send them a personal message.

Take some time and write someone a note today, it can brighten someones life, if for just a moment.
