Letters Are Forever Connections

Finding older blog posts that touch something for me.
I like looking back and remembering other days. And, right now my calendar and my to-do lists are full and pressuring. Something has to give on that front and I am working on it. For instance, today I followed the advice in a Michael Hyatt email and read this article by Jeff Goins . He reminds me that when I over-do-it on my calendar I am making a problem for myself. Hmmm.
In the meantime - this 2010 post reminds me of the joy and permanence of letter.


Re-gifting - A Story in Letters

A Vintage Gift

Gave this to Jimmy for Christmas.

I filled Jimmy's Biology Box, circa 1970 -
with his letters from 1984, and 1985 - the first couple of years he and Monica lived in Germany.

They were married in January 1984
so many of the letters detail their settling in - both in Germany and together

Remember hand-written letters?

There are also letters from Monica
talking about her days, classes and
job search.

As well as plans Jimmy made for our trip over to visit them.
Its all the "stuff of life" - the things you forget.

No better way to hear the story of your life than from YOURSELF!

Now - what if I had thrown those letters away?
