Letters to cherish
Yesterday, I was rereading my letters from Sean. In his letters, I saw how the boy I loved grew into the man he became. To see his handwriting and remember his hopes and dreams brought comfort to me despite my tears. When I want to relive all the love and adventures we shared together, I can through his letters. They will be my solace as the weeks and months go on.
It made me wonder how many people still write each other? I hate it when people call something a "lost" art. I think no true art is ever lost. Just waiting to be rediscovered all over again by people.
With Valentine's Day around the corner, this is a wonderful time to write a letter to someone you love. It doesn't have to be just a romantic love. Love comes in all shades and colors. It could be a best friend, your favorite cousin or your child. One day, you will be gone. The person will have the letter you wrote to them on a sunny afternoon to cherish forever.
Sweet dreams to you all.
