In a world gone mad with
texting, emailing and Facebooking,
there’s something so charming
and cheering about receiving
actual handwritten notes in the mail.

I love picking out cards
for my family and friends,
so I felt like I hit the jackpot today
when one of my favorite card stores
had a special sale: 5 cards for $5!

I lost myself
in stacks of cards,
choosing pretty ones,
funny ones,
poignant ones,
loving ones.
All tiny day brighteners
that cost very little
but mean a lot.
