That’s right, today is send a card to a friend day. You could send an actual card, a letter, an e-card or just send a message to a friend you haven’t been in touch with for a while.
Why do it?
Friends are an important part of our life and if we don’t nurture these relationships they can fall by the wayside. We all know friendships can drift apart over the years but one way to keep these relationships strong is to make regular and meaningful contact. Sending a card gives you the opportunity to touch base with your friend and let them know you are thinking of them.
What to say?
It can be as short and sweet as ‘Thinking of you’ or why not share a memory of the two of you that always reminds you of them. Lots of us bottle up our feelings and don’t share with those around us so a simple message and a card can really help someone to know there are people out there looking out for them and thinking of them. Send your favourite photo of the two of you together, one from your favourite memory would work even better!
So go on, start a habit today to send a card and brighten up someone’s day. We can’t really see any negatives to Send a card to a friend day and you never know it might be your turn to receive one next year!
