The first thing I saw was my 30 year old wedding gown, pictures drawn from my children, old school photos, scrapbooks, beautiful cards and cherished handwritten letters from my grandmother parents and friends.
It was the letters this time that I spent most of the day rereading and remembering the contents of the letters and each occasion that they were describing. I couldn’t help thinking how much I miss receiving beautiful handwritten letters in the mail and how I missed writing them too.
I remember sending letters with a pressed flower inside or a little spray of perfume, with those special coded messages written on the back of the envelope such as S.W.A.L.K. (sealed with a loving kiss) or H.O.L.L.A.N.D (hope our love lasts and never dies)
Although I accept how we have evolved technologically with the ease in which we can communicate now through instant messaging via mobile phones, twitter, emails, facebook, blogging and Skype. I can’t help but wonder if we have lost some of the finesse of the writers of years gone by.
How about you do you miss receiving handwritten letter?
