Now we have instant gratitude with social media, though not everyone gets to see our posts, unless we take the time to message directly.
Over the years it has become more and more the trend to pop the money in the charity box instead of purchasing cards.
I think now, more than ever, people can feel isolated, and a card arriving in the post is such a highlight to the day. It is something that can adorn the walls and forms a part of our Christmas decoration.
Do you know someone who would benefit from the emotional lift of a cute card? Do you feel like posting a few cards out to bring light to someones day? Perhaps if you are good with your art, why not invest in some blank postcards, pen something cute, and pop a simple cheery note.
Today, consider making a ray of sunshine in someones day, and take a few moments to indulge in sending some festive cheer.
