I LOVE stationery. Don’t believe me, just ask my husband. He’ll vouch for the many (many!) boxes I have of pretty paper. From cute personalized stationary, to boxed cards, to rolls and rolls of stamped craft paper, I have enough paper to last me a good long while. If there’s one thing, however, that I love more than stationary, it’s snail mail.
I was praying for a friend recently who was going through a hard time. I was asking the Lord to greatly bless them, when I realized that I (yes, lil ol’ me!) could BE that blessing! Or at least a part of it. That’s when I decided to challenge myself to write more snail mail in 2015. More specifically, 52 letters in 52 weeks.
While we’re bombarded daily, or even hourly, by a plethora of emails and instant text messages, there’s something special about receiving a handwritten letter via one’s physical mailbox that a 120 character limit simply cannot covey. And who doesn’t love stumbling upon a written note in the midst of bills, bills and more bills? I certainly don’t!
So, I hope that this 2015 new year will be one full of many snail mail blessings! If you’re interested in joining me with this challenge (or a similar one – you could always do a letter a month, or a letter a day, if you’re so inclined!) message me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Updates won’t be posted to this blog weekly, but I will be updating my personal blog >>HERE<< as often as I can.
And stay tuned for a STATIONARY GIVEAWAY I’ll be hosting, coming very soon!
It’s time to BE a blessing.
Happy writing all,
