I have been reminded of a simple pleasure of life...receiving a package or envelope from a friend. As a child, I eagerly awaited letters from my friends I had moved away from...but time passed and we drifted apart. Letter have been a thing of the past. But through Flickr and Instagram I have connected with some old-fashioned pen pals.
I am trying to get better about writing to those who mean the most to me (I have sent out a few but still working on everyone else). I never have anything interesting to say, it seems so it's easy to not write. With Facebook, emails, phones, texts (none of which I am good at using) letters seem less about keeping in touch and more about an old-fashioned simple pleasure. So, family and friends, know I have a goal of writing to each of you at least once this year...even though I have nothing interesting to pass along. Hopefully it will brighten your day as it has mine!
