I just found out that April is National Letter Writing Month. I had no idea. It seems there's a holiday or celebration for everything nowadays. Some can be a little strange to me, but I can get behind this one. There is just something extra special about writing a letter. Dontcha agree?
I have an uncle who is hard of hearing so we usually write letters back and forth. He doesn't use a computer either, so old fashioned letter writing is perfect. I feel a special connection to him and I think our letter writing is part of that.
I also have an old friend from college who regularly writes letters to me. Even though we could text and email and phone, this is our most frequent way of keeping in contact with each other since we live on either coast of the United States. She's in Massachusetts and I'm in Oregon. We usually pick out beautiful cards and stationary to send each other which makes it a lot of fun and very special. Sometimes, I create a card or some artwork for her.
Who do you keep in contact with a letter? Or do you have someone in mind who you'd like to try and send a letter to? I hope you do it, and send some smiles and joy to someone you care about.
