Do you ever feel like the card you’ve selected to mark a special event doesn’t begin to capture your true feelings about its significance? Have you ever felt that it maybe even contradicts them by being so impersonal and generic?
Earlier this month we’ve celebrated my older son’s birthday. He turned six and I bought him a super hero birthday card.
The card I selected captured none of the warmth or tenderness I feel toward him. The words we put on that card were in big print letters, short and legible. They reflected a fraction of our feelings. I wanted something more personal. More lasting. I wanted him to be able to go back to that card as a grownup and absorb. I’ve decided to try and pour my unconditional love and experience into words elsewhere. You can read them here.
