Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Just a card

--by Flowers, posted Mar 9, 2007

My son and I sat down the other day and wrote a card to send to his Nan and Pop.  We do generally see them every week but they were having a particularly bad week so I decided we would send them a special card.

The night they received it, we got a phone call to say what a lovely surprise and how it had brightened their day.  Nan had a good chat with my son, and my son loved talking about the card and picture he had drawn.

A simple gesture but it allowed my son and I to let two people we love know it!

You can just imagine the joy nan and pop got when they opened the card.

Nice warm glow all around.
