For those who picked up the gauntlet at the beginning of the month, we’re about half way through. Your probably realizing you have written to everyone on your list you think would enjoy receiving a hand written anything from you.
Let’s take a deeper look at this challenge. Of course, sending and receiving hand written letters is an anomaly in today’s society; however, if that letter could become part of a bigger picture, the challenge may just benefit you and your families future.
Write letters that tell a story of your family history or ask for family information. Write letters that include time honoured recipes. Write letters with anecdotes of a child growing up. Use the opportunity to create a genealogy trail. It’s OK to send to the same person more than once. Share these moments with your children and grandchildren.
How have I been doing at this challenge? Not bad. Actually, pretty darned good. Out of 14 days I have sent something off to the post office 10 times. Hand written notes, mostly. The best part, is meeting up with someone or getting a telephone call thanking me for the wonderful surprise they received in the mail.
