The past few weeks I have been clearing out closets and sorting through boxes of mementos that have been saved from many years ago. I came across this bundle, neatly tucked away in a keepsake box. I had put it aside, thinking I would look at them later. Then, Jan, of Stand and Stare, wrote a post called, "Love Letters from the Past".
These hand written love letters I have saved, are a rarity today. When was the last time you wrote a note or letter and sent it in the mail?
Today, we simply turn the computer on and dash off an e-mail to our friends and family....or a text message instead of a phone call. I wonder if future generations will simply lack penmanship skills.
In Jan's post she referred to another blogger, Elaine, from Life in the Slow Lane. Elaine, recently wrote a post about the vanishing art of letter writing.
The question was asked by Elaine, "Do you think e-mails will be saved for posterity? No, neither do I."
There is something so personal about taking a pen in hand and expressing your feelings. Everyone has his or her own handwriting style. Even identical twins have differences in their writing.
Why not write a letter or note today, to someone you love....
