Just celebrated my birthday...yes 29 again. I received quite a few cards this year. I got the biggest kick when I opened two that each held a dollar. The memories it brought back...

While my dad was in the hospital, years ago now. One of the many cards that arrived had a dollar in it. As he lay there looking at all the cards he told my mother , if each one had had a dollar in it they could have gone out to dinner. A very special aunt of mine started the tradition...now I try to put a dollar in the cards I send, especially for the little ones. They love it. I love to send birthday cards, anniversary cards and even a few odd holidays. It's so much fun to find a card in the mailbox rather than junk mail and bills. I buy them from the dollar store, use blank note cards or they are a great thing to buy from a school fundraiser.

Such a simple thing to do and adding that silly dollar just can't help but put a smile on the face of someone you love. When I'm really efficient I top it off with a celebration stamp from the US Post Office. I don't know if anyone else notices but I think it's fun.

As the New Year begins add to your calendar birthdays you would like to remember. Note them a couple days early so you have time to get a card in the mail. It's a nice thing to do.
