I was visiting my terrific dentist, Dr. Allan Miller today _www.thatsmydentist.com and was reading all the notes he receives from happy patients-me included. You can see him standing in front of the bulletin board and it is overflowing with notes. The one I loved more than anything is the one to the left from 8 year old, soon to be 9- Philip!
How wonderful to receive these lovely thoughts of gratitude for what Dr. Miller specializes in 'Creating Beautiful Smiles' and Healthy teeth.
As I was riding back on the train, I saw this wonderful article in today's New York Post about a letter that was received 70 years after it was mailed!! A terrific story -take a quick glance at the article on the link below.
What stood out for me was this line from the young woman who now lives in the apartment where the letter's intended lived many years before:
“Nobody writes handwritten letters anymore."
It is true a handwritten note stands out and makes a difference. I like to call it your 46 cent investment- since that is the price of a stamp today.
Take a few minutes today or tomorrow and make someone's day by sending a heartfelt note. It makes a difference and hopefully it won't take 70 years for it to be delivered.
