Emails. Text messages. Instant messages. They can be helpful, and have a purpose. And there are times that I need someone to know that "this" act of reaching out is intentional, required extra effort, and that they are worth every bit of it.
With the help of my calendar, I am reminded every 5 weeks, to send out at least 5 cards to random people I'm connected to, or those I met and want to thank.
I send them a hand written note, with words of encouragement, or gratitude, and always with love and understanding.
Some go to those in prison, in the military, those whom frustrated me, those whom helped me, those in crises, those alone, those that need a kind word.
Kindness, compassion, understanding. Yes. We can change the world.
