April 2015 Letter from the Editor

04012015_gratitude_memory_BLG_BMA

April is here!  It’s bird-chirping weather at last! It’s an easy time to be grateful with so much spring popping up everywhere we look—birds nesting, bees buzzing, flowers blooming and warmer breezes blowing our way. And just as April Showers bring May flowers, so do life’s challenges lead us to brighter days, reminding us to be grateful for all we have now and for unknown blessings on their way. True appreciation is felt from the depths of our hearts. Our minds may check off a list of things we ought to be thankful for, but our hearts record the deep feelings of gratitude for the kindness and generosity we experience.

Easter is April 5th–a wonderful time to show appreciation to your friends and family by sending a card to let them know you’re thinking of them. We’ve designed some beautiful new cards to celebrate this special time. We have an interactive card that features a bunny on an Easter egg hunt in a charming garden. As a special surprise, we’ve included the true story behind Easter eggs. In another card, we hear the beautiful hymn, “Jesus Christ is Risen Today,” as a butterfly emerges from a cocoon, a symbol of rebirth and renewal. We watch as he flutters about a field of wildflowers along the path to a country church. If you’d like to send a smile, our pug in bunny ears, “Pugs Bunny,” will deliver your message for you.  For those of you who like to print your cards at home, we have two new Easter cards and a Passover card.

Thank you!
