The Art of Letter Writing
Hello my friends, I miss a night of posting and I miss all of you. I always enjoy reading your comments as I drink my morning coffee and when there is no post, obviously there are few or no comments. So it's great to be with you tonight and hopefully tomorrow morning.
It has been a very long while since I have written a letter. Today, with super rates on long distance calls, e-mails, faxes and cell phones......seldom do I write anyone or even consider snail mail. Last week I received a letter from a friend of my sister's in Scotland. It was so nice to see my name hand written and read news of a friend in their own hand writing. I had forgotten how good it felt to receive and read a letter. Today I sat down and replied, I didn't click on reply or click on send. I just put a stamp on the envelope and mailed it.....and you know I really enjoyed writing a letter again, and watched as it slipped into the familiar red mail box off to another country, it's been a long time. I hope to do it again soon.
Yesterday I spent several hours with my friend at the hospital. Now I took my laptop and Internet Stick with me but I didn't have time to go online. In a room full of patients I was kept busy getting drinks of water, fixing pillows or a warm blanket. I enjoyed talking and laughing with everyone. The time went by fast and I am happy my friend made out very well and is home today feeling good and comfortable.
Yesterday as today was hot and humid. Early evening it became very still and quiet, the sky turned dark and it was just eerie. The TV screen turned red with warnings of tornado's, hail, thunder/lightning and heavy rain approaching. I began to get ready, just in case. Brought out the flashlight, candles, set logs by the fireplace, and placed extra water in the fridge. I could hear thunder in the distance and the hail and rain came soon behind. We didn't have any tornado's touch down but what was left of my small garden was absolutely crushed. The sad part was even after the storm the air was heavy and warm, no cool off at all. I went to sleep to the sound of my air conditioner.
Have a great Sunday everyone and may I asked you all for a small prayer for me and my family....there is an issue right now I feel only the Good Lord and prayers can resolve.
Good Night and God Bless and many, many hugs.....:-)
