Letter Writing

 It started in junior high school this love for letter writing. We had a teacher who had us exchange letters with a class in Sweden, I was hooked!! I had my pen pal for years, but after we both married and started moving we lost track. I still have my letters tucked away for safe keeping, and every once in awhile I'll stumble upon them and read them again. You see emails just don't create that excitement of opening your mail box and getting a letter, an envelope addressed to you! I don't save emails too much, but I have a special box for some of the letters I've kept.

Do any of you like to write and receive letters, cards, postcards? When was the last time you sat down and jotted a note to someone? Give it a try I know you'll feel great popping it into the mail box and I'm pretty sure it'll bring a smile to the person who receives it. Go ahead you might start a habit you just can't keep to yourself ! Happy Writing!


  1. You are right. It is a pasttime that has been diminished by the hurry up pace and rapid fire email ease of the instant gratification generation. Maybe if we get a few of us who like to write - and receive notes and letters, it will revive this gentle art before it becomes a Lost art.

  2. I had an Irish pen pal when I was in school. Then the great unrest happened in Ireland and I lost touch with her. I have often wondered what happened to her and her family.
    As for the puppies no names yet. I will wait until they come home and I can get to know them a little better. I will have my hands full for sure.
