This year of all years, the sending of traditional greetings cards to loved ones near and far will surely mean so much more to say I am thinking of you, and wishing you peace, love and good health for the year to come, than a Facebook post which may or may not be read?
This may be the only contact you have with this person this year, Surely this is the time to make it count?
What about producers and publishers of cards? They're not all big companies, but often small designers who need our support to keep going, too.
You can purchase cards, which make a donation to charity, quite cheaply. The fact that you
- buy cards,
- write personal messages,
- send them.
Or maybe you could hand deliver some of them on your daily walking exercise obviously taking care to socially distance and sanitise where you should.
If I know your address, I will be sending you a card if I do not know your home address, I will try to send a personal message; my love and blessings are unconditional.
If I offend then I apologise - that is not my intention.
If I choose to make a donation to charity that is personal - However, if I do so it will be as well as cards and not instead.Pearl and I hope with all my heart we all stay safe and well, and that the next year will be better for us all and we can enjoy each others company again.
