Day 21 – Send a Letter

lettersDo you keep old letters?

..that you have written yourself. When I was younger, getting a handwritten letter was like winning the lottery or Christmas morning to me. Even now, sometimes I will find a letter that was handwritten and sent by snail-mail to me, and it is one of my most precious feelings. I get a similar feeling when I send something. Sending notes and cards is still a very important practice to me. I hope it is a custom I will always employ.

In these days of e-mail, text messages, and Social Networking (Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest etc), getting a handwritten note is almost obsolete. I am going to encourage you to choose to send someone a handwritten note of encouragement, thanks or just a simple hello. Just show someone that you are thinking about them.

It’s not everyone’s cup of tea to write or receive – anything, so why not choose something heartfelt that you think that person would enjoy or appreciate.

See how sharing your thoughts with someone else without pressing a key makes you feel. You might even find yourself on the receiving end of someone else’s handmade gift!


I am taking part in the Write 31 Days Challenge.

Write it Down!

  1. I love writing and receiving letters. For my recent birthday, my sister gave me a big box of letters I wrote her 30 years ago when my daughter was little. I haven’t looked through them yet, but I’m looking forward to it.

    Have you read “Signed, Sealed & Delivered” by Nina Sankovitch? It’s a great book about letters. I didn’t review it on my blog, but I did another book of hers:



    • It really is. One of the most delightful feelings is getting a letter – a handwritten letter from someone. It’s so special. It is the most difficult thing explaining that to someone who doesn’t “get it”, or doesn’t understand why it means so much. I’m so happy that you do! Thank You!
