When was the last time you wrote someone a letter? Not an email, but a true and tried hand written letter?

I love writing; I love expressing myself with words. If you haven't noticed, my blogs are usually pretty long. Sometime I have to remind myself that someone might not read it, because its too long. So I try and limit myself. But I love writing things out. It helps me vent and clear my mind and ultimately it always makes me feel good.

Today I will be writing a letter to someone. Today I will express myself with words on paper, with ink in my own handwriting. I will tell how I feel and what I think. I am excited and a bit anxious to get started. I haven't written out a letter in a long time. I have, however, written out a lot of cards-thank you, happy birthday, congrats, etc., but its not the same.

Letters are so personal. They show interest, I think. In our e-world that we live in letters are becoming more and more sparse.

I have a suggestion today: Think of someone you care about, someone special and write them a letter. Not a 4 sentence note, but a true letter. One that begins with "Dear..." or whatever word you choose and ends with a "Sincerely" or "Love" or Truly Yours" or whatever floats your boat. Tell the recipient of the letter something nice. Let them know that you care, or appreciate them. Let them know what you're thoughts are, or share a memory that you have together. It doesn't have to be a novel (like mine will probably be). Letters can really help someone feel special and important. It's especially nice when your spouse does it for you. :-)

You'll feel good. I promise!

Hey Girl! Thanks for checking out my blog. I added yours to my blog list so I can check up on you. :) I seriously want to get together with you THIS MONTH! We leave for Utah on Nov. 22nd so let's try for before that. It would be fun for us to get together with our hubbys too, I think. We'll see what we can pull off. :) When is goodfor you?
