Happy Valentine's Day -- remember cards like these?
The really fun thing about collecting cards is that they're so cheery to share with others. Here are some of the oldies that were saved or that I picked up along the way.
You see, I come from a long line of pack rats.
Yes, I sent that to Grandma.
And yes, I sent that to my mom.
And you know, when I see those signatures, they make me smile -- all those memories of people not here with me on this earth, but always in my heart.
Cards from my dad to his mom, those signed by both my parents, and yes, even my bad childhood scrawl.
E-cards are wonderful treasures to pop up on our desks and brighten our day. But oh! To hold a card in your hand, to save it for years and pass it along -- that is a treasure!
Hope your Valentine's Day is filled with love!
