When was the last time you received a hand-written letter or note in the mail?
Once in a while I get a thank you note or invitation. But I think for the most part the world is all about emails and texts. They don’t even teach or encourage cursive in schools anymore. How sad.
I miss the art of using pen and paper and I appreciate when someone takes the time to use them. I received a wonderful hand-written note the other day from an unexpected source. It meant more than any email or text could.
(Dear Mr & Mrs Cline, My name is Jane Ellen, an RN with WAMC. This past week I had the honor of serving your daughter, Laura. Know that she has a knowledgeable compassionate physician, and a loving nursing staff. She has been prayed for and will continue to be throughout her treatment.)
What a blessing it was to know this cancer care nurse took the time to do this for us as Laura’s parents.
Makes me want to go out and buy some stationery and see if my hand will be able to hold up for a whole letter!
I hope you will make a point to get out your address book and jot someone a line or two this week.
A more intimate encouragement is just a few words away with the power of the pen.
