If you are here, you probably received a letter from me. I love letters. There is nothing like getting a real, handwritten letter in the mail. I hardly ever get what I call "real" mail these days, but I get a whole lot of junk in the mail. My husband likes to refer to that kind of mail as, "The postal service's bread and butter." He has a point, advertisements probably keep the postal service going, seeing people don't send letters to each other anymore. It is just too easy to email or text. It kind of makes me sad to think that putting pen to paper is slowly dying out in our digitized social media society.
So, that's why I've started this experiment. I want to send happy feelings to people as they get my letters in the mail. I want to share with others the delight of opening the mailbox and finding something more than junk mail in their mailbox. This summer, I am going to send out a letter each day the mail service picks up mail. That is six times a week(at least, I may be ambisious and go for more than one some days!).
This is also a pay it forward kind of deal. You are not obligated to write a letter to me, even though I with graciously take them. You are the boss of yourself and don't even have to write to somebody in your sphere, but I challenge you to do so. Remember how good it felt to get that letter from me? Don't you think somebody else deserves that feeling? Maybe it's your mom, or crazy Aunt Sally. Maybe it is a complete stranger who you feel like making a non-stranger. It might even be a soldier who deserves some thanks and recognition or somebody who has been nice to you, even when it was hard to be nice to you. You can be bold and make a difference in somebody's life, or you could not. It's really up to you, but I really think the ripples of this little idea that I came up with could be epic. We could bring a little light into the darkness that seems to be pretty prevailant in our world today. So many people need light in their lives these days. Make a difference, one letter at a time.
Thanks for stopping by. Check back. I might create a twitter account that ties to this crazy wonderful adventure. Have a great day and seriously, think about writinig one little letter. We could change the world here people.
