When I was little, my mom instilled in my sister and me the importance of writing thank you cards.
We often couldn’t play with our new toys after Christmas until our thank you cards were written.
It was an excellent way to teach us the importance of saying thank you.
Now that I am older, I still write thank you cards.
My favorite thank you cards are thank-you-for-being-you cards. These kinds of cards are unexpected gifts to recipients and a blessing to write.
I have written about card writing here on (in)courage before, but with the new year just beginning, I felt prompted to write about it again.
Who can you send a thank-you-for-being-you card to? Who can you say you matter through a card?
I believe card writing changes lives.
Now that might sound dramatic, but think about it.
When you write a card, the process forces you to be quiet for a few minutes and think about the recipient. It is an act that allows you to love another person. That intentionality can be life changing.
Life change can also occur in the life of the recipient. A card is a reminder of love. It can brighten a gloomy day. It can bring hope and joy.
Someone in your life needs to know that they matter and that you are thankful for them.
It might be a friend that lives across the country or down the street.
It might be your mom.
It might be your child’s teacher.
It might be your husband.
Will you pray for that person and send them a card today? Then share in the comments who you are going to send a card to.
I’ll start: Today I am sending a card to my children’s pediatrician. She is amazing, and I want her to know she is appreciated. I hope that when she receives the card, it will brighten her busy day.
On January 16, we are going to host a link-up on the (in)spired deals page inviting you to write a blog post about who you sent a card to, why card writing matters, or whatever is on your heart about the topic.
ANYONE is invited to write about card writing for this linky. However, if you would like to review some DaySpring cards on your own blog, we’d love to send you a free card pack plus thank you cards! You can choose from a variety of card packs in exchange for a review on your blog.
Check out the January (in)spired deals review opportunity here.
Please plan to join us!
