As I was preparing my home in Florida to welcome our Board and President’s club members, I made a point of laying out several scrapbooks of letters that had been given to me at our National convention this year for everyone to see. The fact that someone had taken the care and the time to write something just for me is the best gift I could ever receive.
Letters that say I have inspired someone, or given them an opportunity that has changed their life are treasures that provide me with the fuel I need to continue my mission whenever I need strength.
No matter the occasion, handwritten notes, whether they took a few minutes or an hour to write, is one of the most meaningful ways to tell someone that you are thinking about them.
Love letters are also a perfect way to refresh a relationship that feels like it has gone stagnant and help keep the love tank full.
If you think back to the days before email and texts, couples relied on written notes to convey their love back and forth when they were separated by war or traveling for long periods time.
Now that our lives have become so busy and we find ourselves constantly rushing from one activity to another, taking the time to write out how you feel will show someone that you were giving them one of your most precious resources- your time, and leave them with a memento they will treasure forever.
If you haven’t started doing so already, start a box of the cards and notes you collect over time, however small they may be. I can promise that it will provide inspiration during those moments that you need it most.
