Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 19 - November 19
I'm generationally flanked by two of the most amazing letter writers I know. My mom and my daughter write letters and cards the old-fashioned way. They use a pen and paper (usually pretty paper) and write real letters. They send them to friends, loved ones and each other. They've both done it for years.
Somehow the skill skipped a generation--me. I try to do thank you cards and I'm pretty good about Christmas cards, but that's about it.
But I LOVE to get them. Right now my favorites are letters from Taiwan (my missionary son) and Canada (my missionary parents), but it's such a treat when a friend or loved one sends a little something to let me know they love me or appreciate something I did or think I'm really cool or incredibly good-looking. (Just kidding about those last ones.)
Today I got cards from three of those cute kids in my Primary class.
It's a shame this talent--and yes, I think it is a talent--is getting lost. It makes those that are still good at it very worthy of a thank you.
