Hello, dear friends! I hope you're having a beautiful autumn day. We had a lot of rain yesterday, but it's drying off now, and the sun is shining. A perfect day for airing out the bedding, as well as ourselves!
I've been posting quite a few letters written by my father, in hopes of getting them all safely copied and then handing the originals back to my sister for safe-keeping. Reading his letters truly makes me mourn for our culture, that has, for the most part, lost the simple art of keeping in touch through putting pen to paper. I am grateful that my father was a good letter-writer, for I feel that I have truly come to know him through his words. Here is a link to my father's blog.
I would like to encourage us all to sit down and write to someone we have not kept in touch with, today. I am going to write to my Aunt Rose, who is my father's last living sibling.
May you have a blessed day, dear friends.
