Love Letter ~ Letters from the Heart #atozchallenge

Dear Barbie:

Do you know what a love letter is? An expression of love in written form. You are loved. Tall Cool ☺ne loves you so much. Look at that little note you found while trying to find the perfect picture for this post.

The frankest and the freest product of the human mind and heart is a l♥ve letter.

~Mark Twain

Something of substance. Something you can hold on to. It’s not an email or a text message that is going to be deleted with the next update.  People do that all the time on social media.  They share memes telling this one or that one how much they love them.  Unfortunately it’s usually after someone dies.  If it’s not important every day, why make it important when someone dies? 

Don’t conform to this world.  Make time to let the ones you love know how much you love them.  You are loved Barbie… so much. You love so many people and you do what you do.  Send them the old fashion handwritten letter.  They love that.

People are busy and people don’t have time.  So are you. Everyone has the same number of hours in a day.  It’s sort of like that saying it’s not the years of life you live, it’s the life in the years you live.  It’s not how many hours you are busy, but what is the business you are filling the hours with?

Continue making time to tell the people you love just that.

Until next time,

Your constant and faithful,

 

How’s everyone’s challenge going? Are you all having a good time? Visiting lots of other blogs? Shout out today to John for listing the perfect song to add to my blog today.  I’m trying to visit five new blogs each day but it’s not easy. Have you ordered a t-shirt yet? I really hope Jeremy creates a SURVIVOR TSHIRT for completing the challenge. Are you finding all of the letters so far in the scavenger hunt?  Don’t forget to check out the master list and select a few that you may not normally visit. Good luck and have fun.

  1. Such a lovely post to read…thank you. Made my heart all warm and fuzzy. Love the pic.

    I’ve started leaving voice notes for friends these days. It’s the best alternative to old fashioned letter writing, I feel.

  2. How sweet that some people still write love letters today! I am so happy that my husband courted me years ago, way before the Internet or email existed. I have all of his letters in my closet. Maybe one day I’ll take them down and look at them again….can you do that with a text years after you ditch that phone? Of course not.

  3. I love love letters. The hubby has given me several and he keeps all the ones I’ve sent him, even the ones before we were married! Great topic.

  5. So much truth to what you’re saying. Tell people you love them in their living years, not after they’re gone. Also you have *one* life, you owe yourself to make the best of it, especially since you never know *how much* time you’ll end up getting.

  7. Dear Barbie,

    I love the love letter Tall Cool One wrote to you – very sweet and loving! He’s a keeper. 🙂 You’re right about something you can hold onto. Unfortunately, when I get letters I read and toss them out. I do have a few that I’ve kept from family who’s no longer with us but I wished I had kept more. I don’t have a single love letter from our courtship years. I think there is a letter that I wrote to DH many years ago when he was working from home that he brought back in his stuff that I held onto. I don’t know why but I did and am glad for it. This past year and a half I’ve felt more need to send out old fashion letters to my kids when the mood strikes which isn’t often but I need to make more time for it because I know they’ll appreciate the message now and even more when I’m no longer living. Thanks for the reminder. Love the music choice!

    I have another Looney Tunes A-Z Art Sketch to share with you, check it out my illustration I named, Lunch. Happy A2Zing!

  8. And excellent commentary on our times and a valuable suggestion for how to overcome the digital disconnectedness. https://mollyscanopy.com/2021/04/line-dancing-and-long-distance-friendships-atozchallenge/
