If you are among the majority of people chances are the only thing that is filling up your mailbox these days are...
Bills to pay
or Loads of junk mailAs our society's need for instant gratification continues to grow in leaps and bounds. Becoming the green monster that eats away bit by bit at the simpler things in life that bring so much happiness and smiles into our day.
Wouldn't it be great to discover a handwritten envelope addressed to you , its contents beautifully written by hand ~ not asking for a payment nor trying to sell you something. Instead filled with events happening in the part of the country/world that the letter originated from. Perhaps wishing you a happy birthday, anniversary or just wishing you a fabulous week. Knowing that someone took a few moments out of their to bring a smile to yours.
You can pick up that letter/card many times, any time you wish and read it again and again. Yes, you can reread an email or text message, but often these are just tid bits of symbols, abbreviations ~ tell tale signs that not much care was put into it's content. Technical correspondence cannot compete with the emotional feeling one gets in holding a handwritten piece of paper in their hand!
There are many benefits to writing a letter/card to someone. Because it's for someone else you will take a few moments to sit and actually relax as you gather your thoughts and put them to pen and paper. Perhaps you'll even enjoy a cup of tea or other calming beverage.
Don't have anyone to write to? Would love to get something other than bills or junk mail, but your family or friends just will not put pen to paper. No worries, participate in BlogLand Pen Pal and start writing and receiving "GOOD MAIL"!!
