Peoples thoughts about handwritten letters
While he shows me every day how much he loves me, he hardly ever expresses it with words. This letter makes me feel so important.
While searching through a closet recently, I found a box that contained some letters written to me by my mother and aunts at various stages of my life, as I looked at their handwriting and read their words, memories came flooding back at each instance they wrote about.
Handwritten letters from loved ones are saved, re-read, and carried about. It’s just not the same printing out a typ
ed email to tuck under your pillow!
We fell in love over the dozens of letters sent between us. I do not know of a richer and more satisfying way of getting to know a person. Today the collection of letters from that time is one of our most treasured possessions.
If you were born after 1979, you may have never sent a handwritten letter to anyone. So accustomed to email and now IMing, actually picking up a pen and writing a personal message to someone - not on a sticky note, but on actual stationery - may seem foreign to you. It's not that technology isn't important. It's a wonderful tool. However, to actually sit down and put a part of you into a handwritten letter, to tell a story and express an emotion to someone important to you, provides a glimpse into who you are. Plus, a handwritten letter can become a cherished possession that the recipient can keep for years to come as a reminder of important relationships.
In an age of electronic everything and instant access to information, I, more than anything in the world, LOVE getting handwritten letters in the mail.
We are still best friends even though we haven’t lived in the same state since. We still make a point to write hand written letters instead of always using e-mail.
Nothing makes me happier than sending and receiving handwritten letters in the mail. There’s something so personal and thoughtful about them.
I had an entire shoebox filled with handwritten letters from my cousins, grandparents, and friends. I stopped and read those letters for about 2 hours and realized that my children have no shoe boxes full of letters. They have emails, where are those emails going to be in 20 years? Not in a shoebox.
When I was younger my friends and I always used to write letters to each other because we decided that everybody loves to get unexpected letters in the mail, it cheers you to think that a person took the time to sit down write to you, I still love the feeling but it rarely happens these days.
I have a pen friend and just love the feeling you get from coming home from work to a real letter. It's so much more personal and you can carry it with you everywhere you go without having to print it out.
email and texting is fine, but there's something so beautiful and personal about a letter that someone has taken the time to write by hand. to me there's excitement in tearing open an envelope and wonderful warmth in reading a handwritten letter.
I love hand written letters. And I enjoy writing them to. I can express (it seems ) so much more with pen and paper. And the thrill of getting real mail... Wow.
I love love love handwritten letters notes cards or anything! I obviously text and use social network sites a lot more. But me and my friends have traditions of writing handwritten notes letters and things just for the helluvit.
I hope writing letters never completely disappears! I love writing letters to friends and its something that you can put in a memory box and savour for years to come. Plus its so romantic to get a letter from someone who admires you.
Does anyone send handwritten letters anymore? I adore the idea of handwritten letters, the time, care and thought that goes into them...even just the simple little notes.
Letter from home
One Mid-Autumn Festival, the Nanjing Normal University urged its students to hand write a letter to their parents. It was the first ever handwritten letter the students had sent to their parents. They felt great pleasure in doing so and their parents were greatly moved. A mother wrote back to her daughter saying that the day she received the letter was “the happiest day in my life”.
