A handwritten letter...

I wrote a letter to our Nana yesterday.  At 93 years, she isn't really in to email or text messages, and so each month or so, I sit down with a cup of tea and write her a handwritten letter.  Quite often, it is difficult to find the time to do this, and of course, it takes a little bit longer than it would to text someone, but overall, I've decided it is a wonderfully therapeutic thing to do!
There is something about collecting your thoughts about recent events and experiences and sharing them with someone you love, particularly for someone who loves to hear from you and appreciates the effort.  I know checking the mailbox is an important part of our Nana's day!
So much has changed with online communication, but I think that everyone still loves to receive a handwritten letter, note or card in the mail - it certainly is nicer than a bill - so try to find the time over the next few weeks and drop a line or two to someone you love!
