Did you have a pen pal growing up?
Do you still put pen to paper and actually "write" a letter to anyone these days?
Seems as though the old fashioned writing (in proper grammar, indents, periods...etc..) has been replaced by fast fingers typing on keyboards, LOL, LMAO, I Miss U, How RU?
I'm guilty of it.
I've lost contact with all of my childhood penpals. I'm not sure why....life I suppose gets in the way. Technology allows us to find people, facebook allows us to "creep" into their lives...so who needs to actually write a letter to that friend in Europe? One can simply post on their "wall" and be done.
Last summer a good friend of Cole's moved to Ontario. There were tears....and as the tears dried, and the I miss him's started to fade, letters started to arrive in the mailbox... and Cole wanted to write back.
One year later and the letters continue to go back and forth, almost monthly.
A true penpal for Cole.
Are you playing soccer this year?
How are your brothers?
I miss you..
Little hands working hard each and every time...
His teacher can thank me at the end of the year for intense printing practice ....
Penpals. A lost art.
I'm writing a letter tomorrow. To whom... I don't know.
Maybe this blog is my pen pal
Maybe your comments are my stickers and silly bands.
Maybe your continued support is my return letter.
