Good Morning =~}
Today, I’m giving thanks for handwritten letters! The value of a letter has become unfortunately unappreciated.
A letter sparks some happiness in deployed soldiers. They tickle excitement in the elderly. They provide joy to children fighting cancer. They’re encouraging, loving, and special.
The best part of a letter is it’s timeless value. They’re keepsakes, that hold memories for eternity. They are words from the heart. They’re thoughts that couldn’t be put into words.
When I was growing up, my siblings and I made friends, while on vacation. We met a family in Myrtle Beach, a family of sisters from PA. Another Summer, while my family spent a weekend at a car show, we met a set of twin siblings, boy and girl.
Letters carry words, precious thoughts and emotions. They’re permanent declarations of ideas. They’re eternal pieces of history.
This year, during this Christmas season, I’m taking part in a few letter groups. They are a collection of individuals who want to write and send cheer to many struggling this year. Sure that pertains to all of us; but, some more so than others.
Letters is a selfless process of writing pieces of ourselves to another, spending time that can’t be relieved. Having this opportunity to touch lives, with positive words and love, has been as much a blessing for me, as it will be for the recipient.
With Love & Light
