It is a bit of a lost art, isn't it?! I am so guilty of sending a quick email or text or making a call
instead of putting pen to paper and writing a note.
A good friend occasionally sends me actual notes through the mail,
even though we correspond by email fairly regularly.
I think my heart skips a beat when I see an actual letter instead of a catalog
(I am attempting to keep the U.S. Postal Service going with all the catalogs I receive).
And while I do enjoy catalogs, about the only other mail I get is the
dreaded . . . bills!
I am resisting on-line bill payment. I know, I know, save myself some postage and time,
but remember, I am still trying to keep the good old postal
service going --
somebody's gotta do it!
Did you know that I actually received a note from First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy??
Yes, I am kind of admitting how ancient I actually am,
but I was very, very young girl (kindergarten, first grade maybe)
when the President was assassinated.
I remember it so clearly -- those big events stay with you forever!
Going to Catholic school, we immediately fell to our knees and prayed the rosary.
And later, I wrote my very first condolence letter.
A few weeks later, I received a little note from Mrs. Kennedy thanking me for
my letter, and yes, I still have it.
This year, I will be attempting to write more actual letters or at least notes.
So, guess what, I bought myself some adorable note cards.
I do love personalized things and
Shutterfly has quite a selection. My fave color for notecards -- red!
So festive, so fun, so Husker! ;)
