The Greeting Card Association has decided to create a National Thinking of You Week.
Which I think is freakin' awesome because of its goal: to create a wave of love, caring and happiness across the nation by sending and getting a card during the last week in September. And who doesn't like to get a little happy mail?!
I think that's the point of it.
Everyone loves to get something - big or small, its knowing that you are in someone else's thoughts that's the point. Writing a message just to say hello to a friend - life is so short, why WOULDN'T you tell someone that they are in your thoughts?
Besides, science has proven that receiving a card is good for everyone's wellbeing. Its better to receive a handmade, handwritten note showing your love and appreciation for someone, which makes them feel much more special, than receiving texts, e-mails or facebook messages. In fact, cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Lynda Shaw firmly believes that receiving cards helps to stave off feelings of loneliness and isolation, increases self-esteem and even helps to ward off the early stages of depression.
HALLELUJAH!! Count me in!! (But I'll still need that bottle of wine.)
So let's get HAPPY and show everyone you know just how much you care. Mark your calendars and start looking for the perfect card to send that special someone.
Now its your turn!
