Memoir Writing Prompt: National Send a Card to a Friend Day

My Mom sent cards of greeting all the time: get well, sympathy, birthday, anniversary, and just thinking of you. Now, almost 97 years old, Mom still sends greeting cards and loves receiving them in return. She has brought so much joy to so many people over the years. Many of my relatives wrote letters and notes back and forth to each other. I still have the last letter my grandmother sent me a month before she passed away. Today, greeting cards can be sent digitally with little effort. However, to receive a card in the mail gives the receiver more joy knowing a person has put in the effort to write a note, address it, put a stamp on it and take it to the mail.

Memoir Writing Prompt: In your earlier days, how did you view letter/note writing? Do you remember a special note you received in the mail? Write about the person who sent that letter and how that made you feel.

Today’s Writing Prompt: Who can you think of today who needs a card from you? Write about that person and why he/she might enjoy receiving your card. Then get that card addressed, stamped and sent today. PS: There’s also a company who, for $40 a month, will send a card every day to your list of friends/relatives for you.

Have fun writing for your generations to come.
