2. After only receiving junk mail, or bills through USPS; isn’t it nice to get a letter? It’s like a little bit of Christmas that day.
3. Letters can be reread over and over. They can sit on your desk or hang off your fridge for a quick reminder of how much you are loved. (I guess a text or voicemail can do that too, but IT’S NOT THE SAME.)
5. When I’m having a rough day (or sometimes a great one!) it helps to write about it. And sometimes I think that maybe the person on my mind might have a rough day sometime (or maybe a great one!) and a little note in the mail will brighten their day. I know receiving letters always makes me happier. 🙂
One great thing about having so many far away friends is being able to keep in touch in so many different ways! From FaceTime to Snapchat; technology has greatly improved how we communicate across the globe, but my favorite form of staying in touch is still (and probably always will be) a handwritten letter.
