1976 LETTER FROM DAD- FRESHMAN IN COLLEGE
Up in my closet, inside of a worn shoe box are packed many letters from my College years. Most are postmarked from my High School Friends. Those I left in order to venture 800 miles away to attend College.... far from my small hometown. There are also some letters from my Sweet Mom and Older Sister and Brother, who pretty much HUNG THE MOON for me in those days. (no pun intended...wink). But inside that box, is one single letter that I Cherish and Hold very Close to my Heart. This is a Letter from my Dad. My father was very Kind, Loving and Affectionate, but did not make a practice of taking Pen in Hand to write down his thoughts to his youngest child or any of his children for that matter. I am so glad when I attended College, there were no Smart Phones, Texts and Emails. Rather, I have a box full of wonderful letters, that I can Read, Touch and even Smell. I am so incredibly Thankful to have this short cherished letter from my Father all those years ago. Each year on the Anniversary of the day of his Birth and also the day of his Passing, I take the letter out and read it ever so slowly. I am very lucky to be reminded of how special my father was and how incredibly lucky I was to be his daughter. Inside of this old and worn shoe box are letters on which most of the Envelopes are written the words...WRITE SOON.
That being said, comes the reason for my Tuesday Rubbermoon Blog Post. A Card that remembers the days of Hand Written Letters to those who were Dear to us. A card that was sent in the Mail asking a Loved One or Friend to please WRITE SOON! I will list the several Rubbermoon Stamps I used for this card below.
3) "Lets Go" (Suitcase)
4) Write Soon
Take time soon to write a handwritten note to someone you miss, care about and love. It will be Cherished and Held Close to their Heart, I know for sure.
Until next time- BARB
