Day 22: Photo Challenge
However, I wish that I was better and hand-writing letters to people without any reason. My Grandma Randall is and always has been wonderful at this and even now in her mid 80's she still sends hand written letters signed in Christian Love. I used to be better about this. I used to send cards to people on random occasions with hand written notes, but for whatever reason I have so tapered off on this habit. It is on my list of things to improve on this year, and I am really hoping to start at it soon. I am proud that I do write personal notes in all Thank-you cards, birthday cards and Christmas Cards, but I want to do more.
I think that hand writing is becoming a lost art,especially cursive, in today's world of computers and smart phones. I look at both of my grandmothers' handwriting after 80+ years and still think that is is beautiful even as both of them apologize for how "horrible it has become". It is funny that even though their writing has become incredible small and less neat, I can recognize every word they have written because I have been reading it since I was little.
I hope that someday my children, family and friends will be able to recognize my handwriting in the same matter.
