When shopping for birthday (or other types) of cards, I like to shop for Papyrus ones.
They are very unique and the sentiments inside the card are very simple.
|Papyrus Hummingbird Seal|
When the card has a special piece of artwork on the front, Papyrus gives you a thicker stock small sheet to put over the artwork so the card doesn’t get damaged in shipping.
It also includes a sticker to seal the back of your envelope with a hummingbird on the seal.
I hadn’t read the text on this sheet until recently.
The text reads as follows:
“Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.”
I like the part that says “every personal connection has meaning.” It’s so true. We humans need to recognize that every person we see has an impact our our life. A homeless person you see on the street might elicit feelings of sadness, regret, helplessness or maybe even a remembrance of someone you know who is homeless.
It matters not whether you talk to a person, we each touch each other – physically, emotionally or spiritually.
