Wednesday Wonderful: Letters
October 27, 2010 § 8 Comments
Imagine this: every day you open your mailbox to get out the bills, reminders and paper. Suddenly one morning you see a cute envelope in there. A letter from an old friend, a family member you don’t see often or that one special and wonderful person. Almost naturally a smile lights up your face.
Writing a letter is such a thoughtful thing to do. And with thoughtful I mean that literally: you think about a person, want to tell them something and put those thoughts onto paper for them to hold and read.
Writing a letter for me is creating the opportunity to take my best fountain pen, select a nice sheet of paper and get my (hopefully) prettiest longhand out.
And as much as I love writing letters, I also love receiving them. In that way I’m very lucky with a couple of friends who are stellar letter-writers. And even though most of them often apologise for their “ugly handwriting” it is always a nice and lovely gesture.
How about you? How do you feel about writing letters?
