I remember in elementary school, we would have a day where we would attach our home address to a helium balloon and release it in hopes of someone finding the balloon and writing a letter to one of us. I can't remember how many times we did this, but I only remember one person actually receiving a letter. Any peeps that went to Hunt Elementary School in Fort Valley, GA remember this activity? I am sure today this would be a HUGE breech of security.
This week, I was feeling a bit nostalgic (the new move and all), so I got my girls to sit down and write letters to a few of their friends from back home. We made a long list of people we wanted to write. Kate ended up writing to 3 on her list and Ann wrote to 2. We also sent out postcards from our trip to the rodeo last week. I must admit that I was probably more excited than they were, but they were good sports. I am sure they will be super excited if they receive any letters in return!
For about 15 years, my daddy and grandmother wrote to me almost every week. At the time, I would read it and go on my way. I did not write them as I should have. I wish now that I still got those letters and that I had kept them all. Being that I am a pack rat, I did keep a lot. I am glad that I did. Today, I got a letter from my daddy and a flood of memories came back from those precious times that I took for granted. Try writing a loved one a letter... they will appreciate it... Let me know how it goes. Happy writing!
