Do you remember writing notes in Jr. High and then folding them into triangles to slip to a friend unnoticed? I do. I am not sure I ever remember what I wrote. The goal was to simply NOT get caught in those days. Nowadays life moves along with texting, emails, and social media, so hand written notes almost feel like a lost art.
I think there is an allure to writing notes; something nostalgic.
Take the love note for example. If one comes in the mail, the first reaction, following the pitter-pattery heart, is to sit down and take the same minute to read it, as the person who took time to write it. So take the time; stick a note in a wallet, or tuck one in a pocket to find later. Better yet, send a letter to the work place.
Notes are only limited to where your creativity won’t take you. Send an anonymous note to a co-worker saying, you matter, and sneak sticky notes in children’s reading books that say, You are simply amazing. Mail a letter reminding a friend of a childhood memory in an effort to interrupt a busy life, or stick one on the windshield of a car to recognize a new mom or an awesome dad.
Gifts. Of. Time? Ever thought about wrapping a box with a note, a simple promise for lunch, coffee or time.
Today MY notes to you come with a great excuse to use a box of crayons on the crisp white paper from my printer.
