The Letter Writing Revolution has begun and this photo was sent to me by an Ottawa mother of her son mailing his letter which he wrote on Day 1 of the revolution. It was raining outside and he (and his little sister) insisted on waiting until the rain stopped so that they could personally drop their letters into the Canada Post Box. This photo brought a big toothy smile to my face!
I have to say that, as far as I know, this boy and his sister are probably the youngest members of this movement. Very cool.
On another note, I received a lovely comment on yesterday's blog from Susan who shared that she had been intending on writing a letter to her son who is getting married tomorrow and had been putting it off. The Letter Writing Revolution gave her the gentle push she needed and she planned to set aside some time today to not only write a love letter to her first born son but one to his bride-to-be as well. This warms my heart and I am hoping that she managed to get it done.
For this revolution to be successful, I need to know who is actually reading this blog and who is taking the time to write at least one handwritten letter to someone, anyone. If you're just joinging this blog, you might want to see the very first post to understand what this revolution is all about. Please become a follower.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's post.....it's all about one of my favourite types of letters.........
