Hi my name is Jen- I'm addicted to Hallmark cards

I went into the Hallmark store to buy one card a few days ago, sounds simple right? I wish, not really!

Talk about choices, and that was just for the type of card I was interested in buying- Thinking of You-Just To Say Hello. Frankly, both would have been appropriate but I was finding it difficult to locate one that said something close to what I wanted to express, nothing quite did it for me. So I kept on looking for the perfect card scanning section after section aisle after aisle, my Hallmark moment turned into a Hallmark hour- well almost!

Have you ever gambled, gone to a casino, put those coins in a slot machine? My husband and I went on a cruise with about thirteen family members a few years ago, it was my first time doing slot machine gambling. Your always thinking that next spin on the slot machine is gonna get you that winner, it's rather exciting- that next one will surely be the one won't it?

Now back to The Hallmark Store, I found its like being in the casino, there are hundreds of cards on the shelves, when you don't find what you want you just keep on looking - just one more card- just one more card-  I kept on saying, hoping that the next one will be "the one" that will express the perfect sentiment- say the right words.

I did find a card in amongst all those aisles and aisles of cards, with a few simple words written in it. For all the searching for the perfect sentiment, I found it was best expressed with my own hand in my own words, so I included a personal note.

Call me crazy, but I bet I'm not the only one who does this am I?
