National Letter Writing Month

April is National Letter Writing Month!

Can you remember the last time you received a hand written letter in the mail? I can.

There is a moderately functioning mentally retarded woman that goes to my church. Her name is Bonnie. Bonnie loves to send letters out. I think she writes a letter every day to someone different. You never know when you are going to get a letter from her. But you can guarantee that you will get one on your birthday. She never forgets a birthday. Her letters are a little mumble as she writes the way she talks and thinks, but it always puts a smile on my face to see a letter from her in the mail.

So in honor of national letter writing month, I am committing to writing at least 10 letters this month. They will be send out via snail-mail and hopefully bring a smile to someones face.

Would you be willing to commit to writing 4 letters this month? Just one a week is all I am asking of you. Who knows, the person to whom you choose to write may need it more than you know.

I will take that challenge. I have to say, the only handwritten letters I get are from my husband's grandmother (coincidentally, she is also named Bonnie). I'll let you know how it goes!
