In this era, a handwritten letter is particularly special. First, someone took the time to purchase paper, sit down with a pen and write their thoughts and feelings down, purchase a stamp and go to a mailbox or post office to send it. These letters take more time and personal attention then composing an email or text message. Furthermore, remember the excitement you get when you receive a card or letter in the mail. It is so nice to have personal mail that is not a bill or advertisement. Letters can be saved and enjoyed over and over again in the future. Often they are cherished from loved ones that have passed away.
Letters can be used to let someone know you are thinking about them, thankful for a gift or good deed, to encourage them or to update on significant life events. Even more you can add photos, cartoons or jokes to make them extra special. Handwritten letters can be included in home-made cards that enable you to express your creative side.
We have many holidays and events coming up that are good reasons to sit down an put pen to paper. Consider Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, weddings, births and reconnecting with friends you have not talk to for a while. Take the time to compose a letter to let someone know just how special they are to you.
