Social Media has changed the way we communicate. We seldom get treasured little notes.
I fondly remember my Mother sending gifts to me in the 1970's when I moved away from home. They were always well received especially the Christmas Cake she sent to me in London. Sometimes these presents came with no note as my mother was busy. My sister and I searched for the note. The gift was sent with love and we knew it.
When we are in a hurry to send a present these days we always include a note. This is one I found the other day from my sister.
If we had left something behind while on holiday we wrote on the outside of the package, ‘do not become excited’ as a warning this was no present but a forgotten item.
