The Handwritten Note

What is it about the handwritten note, that can make such a difference in the course of a life?

Is it the colorful decoration? Or the preprinted sentiment?

Of course that took some thought, and can bring a smile…

But that is not all,

it is the time and (though small) effort that it took to pick up a pen and write a sentence or two directly from one mind, heart, soul through the ink flowing

to the recipient’s mind, heart and soul.

It shows an effort made with care and thought.

It demonstrates the value that one person has for another.

And, it is a physical reaching out that touches one hand to another,

in a way that can touch that person again and again with every re-reading.

It is a way to be present when miles separate you both.
