The volume of handwritten notes and letters has unfortunately gone down in recent years, but doesn't that make them all the more special?
My niece's first week at college coincided with her birthday, so I decided to write her a letter instead of just sending a card. It made my day to see this on her Facebook page a few days later (see post screenshot above).
Don't you want to make your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews happy like this? It's so easy! Get out that pen and paper and just write them a note. And if you have to call their parents to get their mailing address, you'll make their day too. Of course, you'll get a lot of points if you tuck the note into a box of cookies, but I don't want to cause trouble :-).
Did you ever receive a letter that lifted your spirits when you were away from home? Please share in the comments below, or come join the conversation on Elizabeth's Facebook page.
