a note, the difference - review

The other day I had two moods:  down and angry -- a double-whammy, two different reasons.  No need for details.  We've all had days like this. 

The mail came.  A package with a book.   I'm used to books in the mail: a swap from PaperbackSwap,   an ARC tour,  something ordered from amazon, a review copy.  So this is routine.   Opening the package I went  "??? Didn't expect this book???" 

Inside the book was a notecard envelope.  I started sobbing  (!!!) even before opening the envelope.    How much I needed that personal word, even though I don't know the person!   The note was a RAK (see sidebar) from Kristen of Bookworming in the Twenty-First Century.   Thanks, Kristen!

Cards.  Notes.  A letter.  A tangible thing to hold.   Not fleeting email.  Not a "forwarded-thought-you'd-like-this-and-please-forward-to-ten-friends." Such a difference!

DaySpring is perfect for this.  I have a pack of cards from (in)Courage.  Looking through these cards, I immediately thought, "This one is great for Lorraine.  This one for ......"  

I just now discovered DaySpring has a Heart Connection Card Club,  monthly pack of cards.   I'm signing up for this, even though I enjoy making cards by hand.     A word said goes a long way.   A word held goes farther.

I encourage you to mail some words for someone to hold.

disclaimer:  DaySpring through  (in)Courage sent me these cards for review.
