21-Day Kindness Project: Day 14
– Mary Anne Radmacher
Send a Handwritten Note:
In today’s world of texts, voice messages and email, receiving a handwritten letter or card is increasingly rare. And yet we all know how good it feels to receive something personal in the mail besides advertisements, bills, and junk! The joy in receiving has much to do with knowing the special thought and time that was put into it by the sender.
There is something personal, vulnerable and profound in the act of putting pen to paper, and translating heartfelt thoughts into ink. Today, the kindness suggestion is to write a letter to a dear friend, relative or colleague who you are feeling grateful to have in your life. When we receive a handwritten note, we know that person gave us the gift of their time and special attention. Twitter, Instagram and Facebook have changed the way many people relate to and connect with each other. A handwritten note left for someone, or sent by snail mail, might seem “old school” but it can be a precious sense of meaningful connection for both sender and receiver.
