A Lost Art

Wendy Douglas —  July 14, 2010

In the digital age that we live in, sending a handwritten note or card is a lost art. We can now send an email, text, or even a facebook message to say what we once would say in a card. I personally love writing notes and sending cards to people for various occasions.

Thank you cards are a wonderful way to let your volunteers know how much you appreciate them. In these notes, I point out something incredible they did during the Sunday experience and it becomes a way to celebrate with them.

Birthday cards are a favorite of mine. I love sending them to the kids in Summit Kids. I know how much fun it is for them to receive mail and it is a fantastic way to let them know how special they are to you.

Just because cards are a great way to let others know they are on your heart and mind. I love to just randomly send these to people in my life to say “hi” or to say “thinking of you.”

Encouragement cards are a wonderful way to let people know how much you care. These might be for someone who needs support during a difficult time or even someone who is just having a rough day.

I think we all need the personal touch of a handwritten note or card. For me it will never be a lost art.
