I am enjoying the benefits of this new discovery. She likes to write me letters. She also loves receiving the letters in the mail that I write to her. I know a letter from a five-year old might not seem such a big thing to you. To me, it is a big thing. It’s love. It means she is thinking about me although we live a few hours apart and I don’t get to see her as often as I want to.
It also means that she has the joy of receiving my letters. I remember as a child I writing letters to my aunt. She would always reply back and I just loved getting those letters. Email cannot replace the anticipation of a letter in the mail. Email cannot replace the joy of actually receiving a letter. Not only for a five-year old, but for everyone that loves someone else, whether it be family member or friend.
I know eventually email will take the place of these precious letters. Or maybe even blogging like Papa Joe does for Cassie. For now, I’m going to treasure every letter I get and every letter I write.
Who would you like to receive a letter from today? Better yet, whose life would you like to brighten by sending a letter today?
