When was the last time you received a letter in the mail? Not a birthday card or a thank you note; but a letter. The good old-fashioned sit down and write a letter type? When was the last time you sent one? I can’t remember when the last time I sent one was. It has been at least a couple of years. Especially since I never got a response. At least not in my mailbox outside. I’m sure I received a phone call or an email but nothing in the mailbox.
I used to love writing letters. Or maybe it was the receiving that I loved. As a child I had a cousin and a friend who also liked to write letters. However those days seem to be long gone. Wouldn’t you like to get something other than bills and magazines for a change? Maybe this week I should write one. I still haven’t started my thank you notes from Christmas so I better do those first but after those are complete I think I’ll write a letter.
Maybe a little something in the mailbox could end up being something very uplifting for that person the day it arrives. You know those days – a long day at work, dragging thru a day after a restless night or a day that nothing seemed to go the way it should have. Who better than to send one to than my cousin. Perhaps her childhood ways will come back to her; if only long enough to write one letter.
