Think back with me for a minute, back before 2005 or so, back before emails and social media took off, do you remember, a neighbor has had a baby, a friend had been to the hospital, someone moved in next door, there is a new pastor, anything worth mentioning happened.
Every one was talking about it.
Mothers, sisters, aunts, and friends, would be sending cards, or taking a covered dish,
or a simple basket filled with toys or books.
Children would be making 'get well soon' 'welcome home' or 'nice to meet you' cards. Everyone was involved.
A house plant might be in order, or just a simple 'hello.'
Where did those times go?
Are we too caught up with technology that we can't take a minute to welcome a new member of society, in person?
Or send a nice letter or handmade card?
Or make a meal, and bless a new mom, or new home owner, or new friend?
Where did those simpler times go?
