Are letters a thing of the past?
I love getting email from friends, but letters--there's just something about receiving a letter in the mail. Agreed?
Back in the day, I remember how much I enjoyed writing to the friends I met at summer camp--even more, I enjoyed receiving letters from these friends.
I met one particular friend about 20 years ago when I was in high school. We exchanged letters for years. I can still picture her handwriting. I don't think I would have this connection with her if we had emailed each other. Sadly, she passed away about 10 years ago. She died of Leukemia at the age of 30, leaving behind her young husband and a sweet baby boy. It literally broke my heart, but I love that I have sweet memories of exchanging letters with her.
One of my goals for this year is to be more intentional about letter writing. It's been on my mind for a few weeks.
Have I written any yet?
But guess what I got in the mail today?
A sweet, two-page letter from a friend. It truly was the sweetest letter ever. It made me smile.
But I was smiling even before I opened the letter.
That's how happy letters make me.
