the joy of receiving a card

In this digital world, the hand written word is becoming ​more and more ​scarce. I ​can’t recall the last time I received a written letter in my mailbox. ​A card very occasionally but usually it is an email or text. ​But ​despite the preference for all things digital, we have a ​special ​lady at my bridge club ​who always manages to add a bit of brightness to someone’s day. And she does it the old fashioned way … with a pen and card. ​

J, the personal messages lady is busy ​every week writing cards and sharing a bit of sunshine around. Whether it’s a 90th birthday, a bereavement, get well soon, congratulations or a simple thank you – she is the lady who looks after it all. All clubs function on the goodwill of volunteers and I think the role J does for our club is important. Often they generate another thank you card in return but that just reinforces the good manners and etiquette that ​most of ​our players display.
