The gift of a letter
There are some things from the past that I often like to rekindle in my life. One of those is the handwritten letter. Sure with the internet age and instant emails so many of us do not write letters anymore. I think we have lost something with that. A handwritten letter is something you can touch and feel in your hands, you know the sender spent time with the paper too. I have always written letters and I miss the frequency of them.
My friend Kate and I have started writing letters to one another. We live in the same town about 15 miles apart. We still call each other and send emails but its so much fun to receive letters in the mail that we started to write one another. I think I will start doing this with other people too. So if I have your address you might get some mail from me. Today I even pulled out a quill pen to write. It felt very old fashioned on one hand but oh so pleasing on an other. When was the last time you wrote a real letter, or better yet received one. If it been a long time perhaps its time to just let go of technology for awhile and write and send a letter to a friend or a loved one. I can guarantee they will appreciate it.
