The Lost Art of Letter Writing

Letter writing seems to be a fading form of communication. We’re sending 4.3 billion fewer letters and cards than we did back in 2001, reports the U.S. Postal Service, a 61% drop from the days when email and text weren’t the main lines of communication.

Let this be your reminder that receiving a letter or card from someone special can bring immeasurable happiness! Just look at the joy on Sharon’s face as she reads a love letter from her beloved husband!

So take a few minutes this weekend to send a little note to someone you love and let them know you’re thinking of them! You’ll feel good for sending it (don’t you love finding the *perfect* card for someone?!) and they’ll be absolutely delighted that you took the time to show you care. We need more of that in the world today!
