In my family, we rip or clip newspaper or magazine articles of potential interest and mail them to each other to show we’re thinking of the other person and that we care.
My mom and dad have been sending me articles for years. When they still lived in my hometown, mom would clip news about anyone in my age range from the daily paper and write on the note, “Do you know this person?” I find myself doing the same thing to my son…
When we’re really being fancy, we’ll actually get scissors and cut the article out!
What little things do your family members do to show they care?
I love this for so many reasons…
1) It means y’all still read the actual newspaper. I know we are really an online society but there is just something I love about the actual paper
2) I love that you take the time to send real mail. I absolutely love real mail and think it is truly a lost art
3) I love that y’all take the time to show each other you care
Thank you for sharing!
