|Adorable card from www.cardlarkie.com!|
I've said before how much I LOVE letter writing & receiving. I really think it's a lost art... It's not that anything I write in a letter is particularly poignant or important or poetic. It's just that, taking the time to sit down and actually WRITE to someone isn't so common anymore. We live in an age where the post office is barely used, stamp prices are going up and we have that little thing called an email that makes life SOOOO much easier. Well, screw easy. I'm increasingly loving what I call "just because" notes. They take little time and little effort and (at least I hope) they bring a smile to the face of someone I love.
I just sent a little "just because" to my bestie, E. We've been able to spend more time together over the last couple of months and it's made my <3 happy! We also have gotten some adorable pictures that I just had to share!
So, I ask: when was the last time you sent a little note or card or letter to someone just because you thought of them? What about sending someone a letter about a special memory you have of them? Maybe they need it and if they don't, I bet you'll brighten their day...
“Andy: But they gave us an out in the Land of Oz. They made us write. They didn't make us write particularly well. And they didn't always give us important things to write about. But they did make us sit down, and organize our thoughts, and convey those thoughts on paper as clearly as we could to another person. Thank God for that. That saved us. Or at least it saved me. So I have to keep writing letters. If I can't write them to you, I have to write them to someone else. I don't think I could ever stop writing completely.”
