Joy-FULL February 2011~ Day 3


It's LATE on Day 3, but since I had to work tonight, this is the earliest I could get it in. For today, it's something simple that I LOVE to do, but just end up 'too busy' to do it. I love to write letters. Short, long, sweet, scolding, thank you, congratulation, encouraging, how's the family, here's what we've been up to lately, it doesn't matter, I just love to write letters. Let's be honest, we all get enough bills, statements and sales fliers in the mail. It's SO great to open the mail box and find a letter from a friend asking how you are, thanking you for some small favor you did, or a note of encouragement while you are going through a tough time. In this technologically advanced day we live in, letter writing seems practically irrelevant anymore, but nothing says I LOVE YOU like taking the time to write a note and send it through the 'snail mail' system. Having a paper to hold in your hand is more comforting that saying, "let me dig through my zip drive files, I know you sent me something a while back" : ) So, take up the letter writing challenge with me and let's bring letter writing back!

I have been thinking about this same thing for a while. I draft letters and notes in my head all the time for people. Or just think, I should send them a card. Then I rarely follow through! I get so mad at myself because it is a really easy and cheap thing I could do to make someone's life better!!! I am going to accept your challenge.

I love to write letters. Unfortunately, I always forget to mail them or buy stamps to mail them. I actually have one for you sitting here waiting for me to buy a stamp.....lol

Kayla, so glad you are taking up the challenge with me. I've got 4 overdue thank you notes that NEED to go out this week. Wanna offer me some accountability?

Dani, I'm terrible with stamps, too. I've been known to tape 2 quarters to the envelope and put it in the mail like that :) I'll be excited to get your letter, whenever it gets here!
