Sage Words

We have a global forum, Stampin' Connection, where Stampin' Up! demonstrators can post pictures of their creations, ask questions and share ideas.

I spend waaaay too much time looking at blogs, Pinterest and Stampin' Connection but I came across a discussion where a Canadian Demonstrator posted these words which I thought were worth sharing:

One of my husband's friends is quite a sage. One day we were visiting and I told him what I do. Now a lot of men roll their eyes like-- "Oh, one of those crazy wasteful ladies-- you'll never catch MY wife getting into it...!"  But he did not-- instead he remarked, "I have missed these kinds of exchanges in society. Special times in life used to be acknowledged with a greeting card so you could display and collect them and take with you wherever you went and remember the friends you made along the way. I still save notes and cards to remember the special friendships that made me a better person. It could make a real difference in someone's life to know they have the kind of friend who makes something for you with their own hands. In the down days it would certainly help one not feel so sad and alone."

Well said.

Thanks for stopping by.
