Sometimes cards are somewhat frustrating things you feel obligated to write; there is occassion to thank someone, or wish them a happy birthday, or a Merry Christmas…. and we just don’t know what to say.
Other times, cards are wonderful things where you can write down everything you have left to say, and give it to someone, without having to look them in the eyes and start crying halfway through your first sentence. They’re for heartfelt messages we’re not brave enough to deliver in speech. They’re for sentiments we scrawl onto paper so that the receiver might keep them for a very.. very… long time.
