Kickin' it Old School
I get it. We live in a digital age. I’m well immersed in it. I sometimes use it too much. I was thankful that when my Mom’s birthday snuck-up on me I was able to send a World Vision gift in her name along with a digital birthday card.
Today is my birthday. I have friends and family who love me. I’ve received many Facebook birthday greetings, but I only received one birthday greeting in the mail. I actually got it last week, and I’ve had it in my pocket and it’s added anticipation to this day. The birthday card was from Starbucks, and I can redeem it for any drink I want; even the froo-froo drinks with whipped cream, sprinkles, extra shots and whatever I want! Woo Hoo!
In this digital age when everything is so instant and easy, don’t underestimate the impact of “kicking it old-school.” Birthday cards and thank you cards via snail mail still are more highly read, more prized than anything you can do digitally. And don’t underestimate the impact of a simple gift worth as little as $5.
Have a great day.
