I usually save every handwritten note I receive....there is something so personal about it that I can't bring myself to throw them away.
Today I was cleaning out my office desk when I came across this....the last Christmas Card that I received from my Dad....(can't believe that it's been almost a year} and it warmed my heart....just as much or more.... then the day I first received it.
During the last few years of Dads life...he wrote lots of handwritten cards and note....To just about anyone he knew...if a thought of them came to his mind...he would write them a note.
(I'm guessing that some people may of wondered why he was writing} he meant no harm...just wanted to say....Have a great day and Happy Trails.
I think it was his way of helping out....when that is just about all he could do close to the end of his life.
I miss his little notes....just glad I have old notes to read over.
Finding Dads note today was just a little push to get me to be better about writing personal handwritten notes....I find that my hand writing is terrible and so I tend to type or email my" Happy Day thinking of you notes."
I have several friends that are awesome at writing beautiful letters...Ellen, Bev, Ruth and Sandi to name a few. =)
I need to do better-
So, if you get a letter from me in handwriting that is hard to read....just know I love you and wanted to wish you a Happy Day.
Hey, lets start a new trend... send a handwritten letter to someone you care about....if for no other reason then to honor my Dad.
