This week is universal letter writing week. It got me to thinking about the romance of a hand written letter. Although her letters were not romantic, I immediately remembered Grams from A Love to Treasure. She wrote her granddaughter a series of letters that would guide her on a treasure hunt. Here is an example of one of them.
I hope you figured out by now the game has begun. You are well on your way to discovering one of life’s great gifts. Enjoy being pampered at the spa. I’ve arranged for you to receive a facial, manicure, and pedicure.
Be watching for the next clue. It may arrive when or where you least expect it. I will give you one clue in case you get out of order.
Home is where the heart is. Xoxo, Grams
I remember as a child when my own grandmother would send me letters. I can not tell you how excited I used to get used I saw a letter from my grandma. It was a big deal. I remember sitting down with my Micky Mouse stationary and writing her back.
I also remember when my husband, then boyfriend, would write me love letters. I think I still have some of them in my hope chest. No text message, email, or direct message could ever compare to a hand written letter.
This year I resolve to write my boys each a handwritten letter and mail it to them.
What do you think about hand written letters? Do you still write them? Do you ever receive one?
