Unless you count an occasional email or a Facebook wall post, I haven't written a letter in years! I did send out Christmas cards this year but they were all addressed the same way, with the same font on the same family photo. There was nothing personal about them. We got several cards in return, but my favorite of all is the real life, handwritten letter from my grandmother.
It even had a few mistakes on it! Apparently she didn't use spell check. Maybe I'm a sap, but the mistakes made it more special. It really made me want to pick up a pencil, unplug my smartphone and take a few minutes out of my day to make someone else's.
