The gift of a greeting card...
My curiosity then led me to the Internet to research when greeting cards were birthed into existence. I discovered on Hallmark's website that greeting cards became popular in the 19th Century as literacy and technology improved. The first birthday card originated in 1850. Hallmark then introduced their first Christmas card in 1915. Wowzers...cards have been impacting people's lives for quite a long time!
With the dawning of our technological age it still warms my heart to have a paper card to treasure. The flair of someone's signature, the sentiments scribbled on the page, just the thoughtful gesture of taking time.
As I sit writing this, I just got my mail, and to my surprise I received 2 greeting cards today!! One was from my dad; my grandmothers son. She'd be super proud dad!! The other one is from my downstairs neighbor who is visiting family in Flordia. You never know how something so little becomes such a warm space in one's heart.
May this season bless you in a multitude of ways!!
May you Sweetly Seek:)
