My generation (as a whole) kind of missed the whole 'letter writing' thing.
By the time I was sixteen most teenagers had Instant Messenger (I'm dating myself here...), Xangas, and cell phones.
Nowdays between Facebook, blogs and texting, written communication is pretty much limited to paying bills and the occasional Thank You card.
But I'm hoping to change that.
For myself at least.
May convert a few of you.
I made it one of my personal goals (101 in 1001) to write notes to people weekly.
I know that receiving a handwritten note means much more than a text or Facebook message (though these are encouraging as well!)
But it shows I was worth the money it took to buy that note and the time it took to hand write out that heartfelt message.
I want to use that to bless others around me.
For Valentine's Day, I wanted to write my sweetie a note, so I purchased these recycled blank note cards at Target for a mere $3.99.
I've stationed them on our desk in a handy spot so that weekly I will be inclined to sit down and write a little note of encouragement to someone that needs it.
Plus they are a pretty darn cute desk accessory!
So Readers....do you write hand written notes?
If so, how often?
If you don't, would you join my challenge in writing notes of encouragement to people around you!
I know both you and they will be blessed by it!
