Please write again soon. Though my own life is filled with activity, letters encourage momentary escape into others lives and I come back to my own with greater contentment.

This weekend I have quite a bit of catching up to do and one thing that’s one my list is writing personal cards and letters. When was the last time you received a card when it wasn’t your birthday? How great did it feel to know that someone took the time to sit down and handwrite you a card or a letter? With Thanksgiving right around the corner I think it’s a good time to thank friends and family.
Today, think about who you are grateful for in your life. Sit down and write them a letter. Now get back to work!
