Expressing Thoughts That Really Matter

Just wanted to share this quote I read in a wonderful book I'm immersed in right now by Margaret Shepherd called The Art of the Handwritten Note. There are a number of gems in that book related to writing more and connecting to those we love but I ended up thinking so much about this one.

Expressing Thoughts that really Matter

It really is true but so much more so in this age of instantly gratifying emails and text messages. It sometimes seems so hard to take a moment out of our busy days to send a message in a way that's much more meaningful.

Think about it, when you get the mail, it's full of junk nowadays. But think of that feeling when you get an actual letter from a real human being. 
Go ahead, I'll wait.

Did you feel it? Wasn't it nice? Doesn't it make you feel special?

Let's write more letters, not only to express thoughts that really matter but to send little messages that will be so much more special for having come in the mail.
