When was the last time that you wrote a letter to someone special in your life? Not a typed letter, not a message on Facebook, not an email, but a letter? An actual handwritten letter that you took the time to write. Some say that letter writing is a lost art, which would be sad. Schools have decided that cursive is not important to future generations, but that could not be further from the truth. Letters bring joy to those who read them, and often times, letters are kept for many years. Did you know that today is Letter Writing Day? Today is a day reserved for writing a letter to someone you care about, or someone who made an impact on your life. Take a few minutes and send someone a handwritten letter today. I guarantee you will make their day.
Something to Think About
If our children and grandchildren are not taught to write cursive, it means that they will not be able to read cursive. Imagine looking at an important historical document and not being able to read it.
Write a letter to someone who is important in your life. A family member, a mentor, or a valued client. (Or all three!) Don’t put it off. Do it today.
