It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Just yesterday I gave a presentation on the power of thank you notes. One of the illustrations I used was a box full of junk mail. This box was full of ads, political brochures, and a local newspaper. There was one handmade card in the bottom in between all of the circulars. You should have seen the look on the kid’s face when they found the card.
As she sorted through the box…junk, junk, junk, junk, junk, ENVELOPE, junk, junk. (You get the idea.) When she got to that card her whole face lit up. She was special. Someone had thought of her. It was more than a coupon for a taco. For me it was a great reminder of what joy a card can bring.
This is a nudge that what we do is important no matter how small. So send that card to bring a smile and a reminder to that recipient that they are special.
With inky fingers,
