Think Green. Come see what I mean!

How many of us have been to weddings and baby showers or even birthdays and gone out to buy a card to go with our gifts?

Um, I would say I think everyone has at some point or another.

My sister in law (my brothers wife) is pregnant with her second child (my first niece, YAY)

I recently received an invitation in the mail to attend the baby shower.  Included was a poem.  I want to share it with you,

Although cards are nice with their sentiment and prayer,

They’re read once or twice then tucked away with care.

A book is a treasure words and pictures unite,

Read over and over to teach and delight.

So instead of a card for Babies and Mother,

Please give a child’s book with your thoughts in the cover

Your book will be cherished; God will watch from above,

When it’s read they will remember your kindness and love.

I don’t know whom the author is it didn’t say!

What a nice sentiment.

While I have dedicated many a book (written in the front cover my thoughts and messages) to my children and others this is the first time I have received it in an invitation.  This is such a fantastic idea.
