The importance of sending greeting cards

It has been scientifically proven that sending someone a greeting card can create a sense of well-being for the receiver. Dr Lynda Shaw, a neuroscientist, stated “The psychology of greeting cards has a lot to do with self-esteem and self-worth. Simply put, if you receive one, you feel better. Time is the most precious gift anyone can give. So, if someone spends time choosing, writing then giving or posting a greeting card, the recipient knows they have been given some of the sender’s precious time.”

I love receiving cards. It does make one feel special. I always receive a lovely one from my husband and it speaks volumes. As far as I can remember, my father always gave me a lovely birthday card, which is special because he is getting on in age. And as old as he is, he rarely forgets to send his friends and family a birthday card. I guess I picked up this good habit of his. Not only do I enjoy receiving greeting cards, I also enjoy sending and writing verses for them too. It’s such a thrill to be able to design the whole concept of a card.swbr12babygirl
These days people find it easier just to send an on-line greeting message, which is still nice, but nothing does it better than making an effort to physically show love by sending/giving a card. And feeling a sense of love by receiving a card, knowing the effort and sacrifice that has been made.
One wise man said, “let us not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.”

By sending that card is an act of showing love. So what are you waiting for? Go and send someone a card, it doesn’t even have to be their birthday. Spread some love!

Spread a little sunshine
Everywhere you may go
And may your sunny rays
On others always glow

    I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours lately, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours.

    It is beautiful value sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers
    made excellent content material as you did,
    the net can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
