When was the last time you received - or sent - a handwritten note in the mail? Not a birthday card or thank you card, but an actual note that was sent...just because? I'm going to guess that it's been a while.
Maybe it seems silly to sit with paper and pen to write a note to someone when it is easier and faster (and doesn't require a stamp!) to send an email or text.
Here's the thing. A handwritten note is intentional. It takes time, thought, and effort. It shows care and a type of thoughtfulness that just doesn't translate in the same way as an email.
With so much going on in the news and events around the country and the world, a thoughtful note can mean the world to someone who may be feeling overwhelmed or is going through a hard time.
This is why I want to share "Sending Peace" cards to anyone who wants to spread an encouraging word and bring a smile to someone's face. The first readers who reply "I want to send peace" will receive four blank "Sending Peace" cards. These are free and I'll even pay for postage! The only thing you need to do is send them whenever you feel inspired to share a friendly note or an encouraging word.
A handwritten note is not going to solve all of our problems, but when we all make small intentional steps to spread peace and kindness, it makes us all better.
