The joy of receiving (and writing) letters

When I opened my mailbox last week, my heart skipped a beat. There amongst the bills and junk mail was a letter! The postmark was from Bismarck, N.D., and I recognized the neat handwriting -- it was a letter from my friend, Carolyn.


Ah, the joy of receiving a hand-written letter! Oftentimes, letters are much better than a telephone call or an e-mail. I think that's because you appreciate a letter. It means someone took the time to sit down and write their thoughts on paper.
