This song has been playing on my mind for the last 15 minutes or so. I'm not sure if you guys know this song by Barbra Streisand.
You dont bring me flowers
You dont sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When you come thru the door
At the end of the day.
It reminds me of a lot of things that are no longer part of the status quo. I was booking through one of my scrapbooks and I realized that I have not added to this specific scrapbook which houses greeting cards. It saddened me to know that the reason I have not added anything was because no one gives those out anymore, including me.
This is the cover of my scrapbook for cards. This holds a sentimental value to me because this was the only card I received from my Dad. The one and only card.
I miss that. I miss getting love notes, love letters, birthday cards, cards for no reason at all, or cards that tell me I'm special or what have you. In this time and age of Wall-to-Wall, IM, YM, testimonials, or SMS ... I believe that nothing beats getting a handwritten note from someone. A handwritten note is more personal and shows that the other person took time to get you a card, think of what to write, and actually write it down on paper. It is more tangible and can be read anytime we want.
I think people should still write love letters to one another. I think people should still give flowers and chocolates and stuff toys. I think people should still get that special person something that you know would make that person smile JUST BECAUSE. There is no need for a reason. Just because.
Isn't that more than enough reason? Why did you get me this? Just because.
