Isn’t technology incredible? It's true, you can do just about anything with the right technology under your fingertips. Especially these days, it's a privilege to have the ability to chat face-to-face with the ones you love even when they might be miles and miles away. What would we do without our virtual meetings, hangouts, and happy hours during these strange times we live in? Go a little crazy? Perhaps. And while there's no arguing that technology can be a brilliant thing in specific times, you could certainly argue that it holds its own limitations in others.
Grandma’s Box of Emails
Unless your grandma left her laptop to you - with emails and messages from past moments and memories - you would have far less in the way of tangible sentiments to remember her by. Even printing off an email or two of hers and pinning it up on the fridge can't compare to the personal touch and intimacy of a handwritten greeting card with grandma's name on it.
There is something indescribable about opening a dusty drawer or box and finding an old card with sentiments of the past written down on them. Seeing the simple signature of a loved one can bring back a flood of memories from good times. And it is this nostalgic essence that evokes a certain type of emotion that can't be delivered through today's technology.
Just a Little More Effort
It doesn't take too much effort to get on the computer and dash off a quick hello through email or send an e-card with a push of a button. No doubt, these efforts are much appreciated. Everyone likes to know someone is thinking of them. However, when it comes to real, heart-to-heart sentiment, there's nothing compared to making your thoughts tangible by sending a card or letter to a loved one.
From finding the right greeting card - or at the very least, some paper and a working writing instrument - to developing your personal message, stamping it, and dropping it off at the nearest mailbox or post office, you're showing the person on the receiving end just how much they mean to you (even if you aren't aware of it). Perhaps that email option is looking rather enticing right about now - being an easy alternative. However, your extra effort translates into smiles and warm fuzzy feelings when the recipient digs through their bills and notices only to discover an intimate card with your handwriting on it.
This little extra effort could mean the world to someone and become a newfound source of happiness in difficult times like these. You never know, sometimes a happy, tangible sentiment can be a lifesaver thrown out to someone in need of it most. Other times, it is just nice to get something in the mail to someone you care about. There's no other feeling like it.
