Today is the last day of April, which means it is the last day of National Letter Writing month, ending the #write_on challenge.
I had a lot of time to reflect while writing correspondence this month. For me, it is a bit about self-care. It gives time for me to put thoughts on a page and express myself to others. But mostly it's nurturing relationships; it's sending gratitude and praise; it’s acknowledging people and their accomplishments. Some of my letters were quick postcards and others long-form missives, some were sent with small gifts or tokens, some accompanied articles or books I was hoping the recipient would find interesting. All of them were sent with thought and attention for the recipient.
Everyone has ways in which they best express respect, affection, devotion. Truly, sending mail is my love language.
Already looking forward to next year’s challenge!
