There is nothing quite as warm and intimate as receiving a letter in the mail. A real handwritten letter where someone thought you were important enough to take the time, sit down and compose their thoughts to you. I still enjoy receiving letters though I do not receive them as often as I would like! With this lost art slowly passing away, I want my daughters to understand the importance and joy of writing a letter to loved ones, expressing their thoughts and applying it to paper with pen, placing it carefully in an envelope, sealing it, addressing it and even sealing it with wax. Handwritten letters are tangible evidence of our existence. They are personal history, family heirlooms, chronicles... Sage is already cultivating the lost art of letter writing and quite enjoying it. She composed a short letter to Mimi, taking great care in addressing it, applying the wax, carefully placing the stamp in the right hand corner and placing in the mailbox. It was charming to see the pleasure she took in such a simple accomplishment. After, we enjoyed the reading of the Dolls' Christmas, a favorite of the girls. May each of you have a week filled with joy!
