I love to write by hand, I enjoy making lists and writing in my journal. Anytime I have an excuse to pull out a pen and some paper, I jump at the chance. My most cherished possession is a gift bag full of letters that Adam wrote to me and I wrote to him. He saved everyone from our dating days, and so did I. After her passed away, I couldn’t sleep and pulled them out and read every single word in every single note, letter, card and scrap of paper. I cried all the way through it I assure you. But it helped to begin my healing. It took me back to the days when he was healthy and strong and full of life. I began moving away from the memories of his cancer ravaged body, to his muscular and toned body. It also helped me to remember all the reasons I fell in love with him! I still love to pull them out every now and then. It makes my heart happy.
I remember growing up my mom would put notes in my lunch box some days. I loved getting those! I do the same for my kids from time to time. There is nothing more special than hand written notes from someone you love.
Challenge: Write something to some one you love today. It can be a quick note, a letter, a card. Anything with your own handwriting. It makes it personal and heart felt. This is an easy one and doesn’t take much time. I am sure whomever is on the receiving end of it will be blessed!
