Last March 15, I received a postcard from one of my best friends — Nelson. He is in Peru right now but the card came from Chile because during that time, he needed to renew his Philippine passport. Chile has a Philippine embassy and it is the nearest place from Peru.
Anyway, the postcard is the first I have received in years ever since these technological gadgets has boomed. I was so happy when I got it!
This postcard just fits the coming Lenten season! 🙂
Can you just imagine the joy you have when you receive things that are rarely given nowadays? I only receive letters when the sender asks me to pay — bills! haha..
Since email, texting and social networking, snail mails have been left in the backstage. Although technology has brought us the great convenience to communicate with our love ones but it is still different when you receive snail mails such as letters and postcards.
To me, it would mean more effort — and that would mean pouring your heart out, simple messages can do that!
I am thankful to Nelson who remembered me even we are so busy with our lives. He is on a mission and I with so many things that kept me occupied. A simple hi, hello and take care would always keep a friendship alive. 🙂 We have been friends since high school. We don’t talk most of the time but somehow you don’t need proximity to keep the fire burning, its the heart of sincerity and being true to one another.
Take care on your missions my friend! May God bless you always! 🙂
