Have you been thinking about sending a note or card or email to someone recently but just haven't made the time to do it? Well, today is WRITING Wednesday. Take 10 minutes today to do just that...maybe it's a thank-you note, a thinking of you card, or just to touch base with someone about whom you've been thinking.

I am going to send an email to my cousins in California. I've been thinking about them a lot, and at 1:30 this morning realized yesterday was their wedding anniversary. I will catch up with those wishes today.

It is sad that most people don't send handwritten anything anymore. I love getting a letter or even just a small note in the mail. Great idea.

Hugs,

A great suggestion Mauri...we have gotten so used to technology that we seem to have forgotten the hand written message. Hugs.

I found Tina's challenge from 2010 and thought it might be fun to do.

If you are thinking about sending a "thinking of you," "thank you," or some such email or e-card, take a moment and write out a note or card, sending it by regular mail. I don't know about you, but it is always such a pleasure to receive my mail and find a note or card, even a postcard, in amidst what is normally just a pile of bills and junk mail.

I have to agree Tina, hand written letters or notes are things to treasure and this is a great challenge.

I'll jump in with a topic for today. Let's think about writing, specifically hand writing. Seems like it is a lost art today. I make a point of hand writing letters to my friends and family as well as thank you notes, etc.

Think about someone that you might typically email or IM or text or even call. Take the time to hand write a note to them. It might be a letter. It might be just a note to say you're thinking of them. Hand written letters in my opinion are something to be kept and treasured.

My challenge to you is to brighten someone's day with a personal, hand-written note or letter.
