The past week saw many of us reflecting on Easter, and being with loved ones. Also another reason for excessive food, friends, family, and fun. Now, let's take a look at the bigger picture.. Are you a person that only becomes friendly, cooks, or takes a moment for people during a holiday?
Like many, I love technology, but coming from perhaps the last generation of kids that went from k-12 without cell phones, iPads, etc.. there's a very large part of me that is old fashioned, actually, let's rename that.. classic. Stationary, pleasant little notes via snail mail letting dear friends and family know that you're thinking of them are a lot better than an inbox message on Facebook.. or a text. A physical representation showing that you care when you're not there.
So often, we tend to see the whole picture at holiday gatherings, or celebration of life ceremonies for those that have departed. That picture is, 'We need to do this more.. We don't do this often enough.. Goodness I've missed you.. I've been craving your apple pie!"
Sometimes, unfortunately we cannot be there, but yet.. we can. A video message is wonderful, and so is a note in the mail, handwritten, with a picture of your favorite time with your loved ones. The bigger picture has endless options, take advantage of all of them.
