One of a kind

I love this quote from a small booked titled The Art of the Handwritten Note by Margaret Shepherd:

“If you receive a note, you can enjoy the ritual of opening it with the sure knowledge that although you cannot know exactly what it will say and how it will look, you can already guess at who wrote it and know that it is one of a kind, that it is meant only for you, and that you are worth the effort it took. Inside that envelope is evidence that someone wants to be in touch with you for some very good reason. And that’s one of the greatest human experiences; receiving the gift of another person’s attention.”

Isn't that a beautiful quote? We all desire the gift of another person's attention and what better way to tell someone you deeply care about them than to write a note, card or letter telling them so?

Of course, you can always send an e-mail. It's fast and easy. But there is something about taking the time to personally handwrite a card or note.

Do you have a one-of-a-kind person in your life? A sibling, a parent, a spouse, a friend, a mentor, or a colleague who deserves the time and attention of a handwritten note?

A few meaningful sentences about what the recipient means to you can encourage and bless. Let them know you are praying for them, or thinking of them or just that you cherish their friendship and are thankful for their presence in your life.

I believe you'll be blessed in the process as you ponder the one-of-a-kind relationships in your life....
