Real Mail

I’m as guilty as most about relying on text messages and email to communicate with friends and family. I say “guilty,” but why should there be guilt? I guess it’s the current way of communicating. However, it felt so good to get a piece of “real mail” today.

My almost nine-year old grandson sent me a letter. It made me really happy that he thought of me, and I could see the twinkle in his eye as he gently reminded me that his birthday is coming!

Ben’s letter has inspired me to write some old-fashioned letters while I’m at home “social distancing.” Perhaps someone else would like to get “real mail” that doesn’t come from Amazon.

    Amazon boxes are great, but a letter from a loved one is pretty exciting, too! You’ve inspired me to write some letters tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

    Snail mail is delightfully retro! What a sweet surprise from your grandson.

    So clever, that grandson! But I love the gentle reminder here, we have a bit more time, do something a bit out of the ordinary!

    I love this, and I’ve been thinking about the exact same thing – maybe it’s time to bring “snail mail” back…
