I’ve recently been going through old boxes and came across a bunch of old letters I’ve saved over the years. I’ve always been a bit of a pack rat and have letters all the way back to my childhood when I moved to South Carolina. I also saved all the letters my grandmother wrote to me from that year, 1986, on. When she passed away a few years ago I found she had kept all the ones my sisters & I sent her as well. It’s been a mixture of happiness and sadness to look back at all of those letters. She was an incredible person I was lucky to have as my grandmother.
Email is surely a convenience I could not live without, but it doesn’t compare with getting a note in the mail that someone is thinking of you. It’s something I used to be really good about doing but have slacked off on over the last few years. I’ve never been good about saving emails and have inevitably switched emails over the years, losing a lot of communication that was pretty important to me.
This week I’m going to revitalize my snail mailing. Let some of the people important to me know how important they are, send a few care packages and see what else the week might have in store.
