I still remember my school days when i used to be so excited on those special occasions like birthdays, new year, Christmas eve, friendship day. The excitement was for that one day off from school, from the normal routine and to get connected with friends and family around. And in those celebration one thing that was so common was the ‘Greeting Cards’
Oh yes those colorful cards, with sweet messages over it, in different sizes for every occasion and for all.. ohh I love them so much. It was so good to give one to our friends, family members , teachers, beloved ones and to receive one from them, it gave so much happiness (yes as it is said happiness lies in those small little things in life). It has so much of emotions attached. I still have those cards with me which I got in those days , it holds so much of sweet memories which does not fade away with time and these are really precious to me as it’s the expression of love, emotion, feeling and sentiments.
But it was a old story though, now in the recent years with the electronic -cards coming in, greeting cards has lost its charm to some extent, where people have no time to buy them, write some message and then post it. Life has got so busy that we have changed our way of maintaining relationship, just a text or an email thats what we can do for our loved one rather writing our feelings on those cards. But still for me these greetings cards can never be replaced with the e-cards.
I don’t remember when did i last receive the one in the recent years but today I was just surprised to get one from mah friend who has no idea that how much I love them (and yes that friendship card has mah favorite colors on it, blue n yellow), it really feels good and takes me back in mah childhood days with those sweet memories.
I must say these cards have not lost its essence for me, I have an emotional attachment with these cards bcoz for me its not just the piece of paper but has the sentiments of the person attached to it whose giving it and I m happy to get one more added as mah sweet memory and yes they always make me smile :-)
You have made me Rich
With the comforting Advices
With many Priceless Memories
With the Prayer you made
With Soothing words you said
With the Promises you made& Fulfilled
With the “Friendship Wall” that you built
