I finally got around to writing my pen pals tonight. I have two of them and had not written to them lately so tonight I wrote two long letters. I enjoy writing to them and I especially enjoy hearing from them. It’s such fun to receive a letter addressed specifically to me! Not a bill, not a credit card application, not an advertisement but a real letter that someone took the time to write. A simple pleasure.
I have been getting to know these two ladies in a way I couldn’t from an e-mail or from the forum in which we all participate. I wanted to have snail mail pen pals because I think the art of letter writing is dying. Not many people do it anymore and I didn’t want one of those people to be me. A simple pleasure.
Pleasant words are as honeycomb, sweet to the soul–Proverbs 16:24
