I always say I'm going to get better at sending notes and cards, because it's actually something I like to do. Every now and then, I'll see a card that makes me laugh or I think will make someone else laugh and I'll drop it in the mail. I'm really good at picking out belated-birthday cards. I think thank you cards are especially sweet. I'm trying to be more intentional about it this year, just because. I did okay for January.
I read about a write-a-letter-a-day campaign for the month of February, tied to Valentine's Day or because the originators weren't convinced that anyone could make it much past 28 days, I'm not sure. I liked the idea of it, I've actually tried it before on my own. It is a commitment, as doing anything every day is, but it also becomes a little bit of fun.
You want to join me? Take up that challenge - to write one letter or card in your own handwriting and mail it with a real 44-cents (or is it 45-cents now?) or Forever stamp in a real mailbox. It's already the middle of the month, but it doesn't matter. Even if you don't get everyday, you can get in a few. Pick your favorite number and write that many letters by February 28. Start today.
