I was cleaning out my desk today, and found some old letters, and cards.
Remember writing letters to your friends?
I used to send letters to my friend, Laurie.
We wrote back and forth all the time.
We were novices at decorating, and gardening. We sent actual photographs through the mail of our houses, and gardens.
I would be excited, waiting for the mail person during the week...hoping there would be an envelope for me in the mailbox from Laurie.
I loved seeing pictures of her beautiful flowers, and lovely home.
I miss those times.
I know emailing is easier, and much quicker...but it seems to have lost some of the excitement of those days I used to look forward to.
The anticipation of the letters, and cards. The pictures. The cherished time spent reading the heartfelt sentiments......
Things change with technology. Some good changes, some not so much.
I guess we hold on to those memories that brought us joy, and thank God for those times that warmed our hearts.I might not use my old desk for writing letters like I used to...but it still holds a lot of special memories for me.
