Pink mailbox stuffed with letters

The joy of writing letters

Ripping into an envelope. That sound! The joy of finding the perfect card. The joy of reading the perfect card! Seeing actual handwriting. Reading a letter. Swoon!!!

The only thing that arrives in the mail now are political flyers and notifications of speeding tickets. Even college rejections and acceptances are online. No more thin vs. thick, small vs. large college envelopes.

We love those rare moments when an actual birthday card arrives. Wheee! That feels good. Because someone made an effort. Someone thought of you. Someone was PRESENT.

Today is a great day to write a letter to a friend. Send a card. Or, be PRESENT. No reason. No birthday necessary. Just a “thinking of you” sentiment. Just a “Hey, friend. I’m PRESENT for you.”
