Handwritten Letters

There is something so special about receiving a handwritten letter, yet these days, they are almost obsolete, thanks to email, texts and the internet.  For the last few months, my mom and I have been sending one another the same cards/letters, each time finding less space to write anything back.  By receiving and mailing back these handwritten letters, there is something so special about it, it’s more personal.

You might wonder how this began, well let me tell you.  I was at my mom’s house and she was wrapping a present for one of her best friends.  She opened a large bag of cards that she has saved over several years.  I watched as she signed the aged card that the friend had sent her.  I asked why she planned on sending that card to her friend and she told me that it’s something that they had always done.  Two days later, I received a card that I sent my mom a long time ago.  From that day a few months ago, we’ve maybe mailed back five ten cards, each one using up  all the blank spaces.  It’s also been a great way to say a little “hello” to each other while she’s been on vacation in Florida.

I encourage you to try this wonderful way of reintroducing handwritten letters or cards…
