Put Your Heart to Paper

There’s something so special about the written word. It has the ability to pull at the heart strings, to make you cry, and to make you feel incredibly special. Don’t take this for granted this Valentine’s Day! I’m challenging you to put your heart to paper this February to let those around you know how much you love them.

I wish I was as good at writing cards as my husband is. I would say at least half of the cards he’s written me have made me tear up. It’s incredible to see those words on paper so thoughtfully written in a way to make you feel appreciated. If you’ve never taken the 5 Love Languages test, I’d highly recommend you do it. Whenever I think of writing a note, it makes me think of words of affirmation which is one of the love languages.

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to put your heart to paper. Write two notes to people you love in your life. Maybe do one romantic one and one that is friendship based. It’s a great way to make sure those around you know how much you care. For me, it’s still really special to get something in the mail because it means the person took extra time and thought to mail it to me instead of dashing off a quick Facebook message or email.

    Written words are so special! Call me sappy, but I’m a sucker for cards. Birthday cards, Christmas cards, Just thinking of you cards, and on and on and on. Nothing can replace a personal touch! 🙂

    There is something special about sending a letter or card to tell someone you love them, appreciate them, or miss them. We live in such a fast paced world that sending a note can truly change someones day! We can uplift someone which is what God intended us to do daily! So to say that I am a fan of cards and notes is an understatement!! Forget a text….Let’s send some cards!! XOXO

    Love this! We just bought a few cards for our little one to scribble all over (and for us to write in) and send out to loved ones we don’t talk to very often!

    Great giveaway! Its so true, there is something so much more special about a hand written card… everything is so digital that connections are so different.

    We (society) have really lost the knack for hand written notes and cards. I love this reminder to send something a little extra special to someone, especially since Valentine’s Day is coming up.

    I can’t remember the last time I sent or received a store bought card. We sometimes MAKE cards and send them, but most of the time we use email. My mom always sends my kids little digital hallmark video cards with a recording of her voice which is kind of cool. But I do think taking the time to write out a card is important every once in a while!

    I love to mail out cards to my loved ones

  15. February 10, 2015 / 12:05 pm

    Such beautiful cards! I keep every card my husband writes me!

    Written cards and letters are very special and they seem to be becoming a dying art. 🙁 I try to write letters once in a while, but time gets away from me. I need to do it more! Thanks for the reminder!

    I am a teacher. I enjoy leaving small notes of encouragement and love on or in a student’s desk. Every single one of them keep and treasure the note!
