12 days of letter writing.

I love letter writing. Even more, I love receiving letters. It's one of my favorite things about Story Sessions. We don't just share life with each other via the screen, we take the time to handwrite {and sometimes paint, create, etc} words for others to hold.

There's something magical about receiving an actual letter in the mail—not a bill, not junk mail, not a book of ads. 

But a letter. 

You feel seen. Noticed. Loved.

In November, I got an email from my friend Hannah Brencher about More Love Letters' 12 Days of Letter Writing Campaign.  I knew I was immediately in, partially because I love Hannah so much, but mostly because I believe in More Love Letters and what they do.

So here I am, introducing you to Lois—one of MLL's bundle recipients. Will you consider writing her a letter with me? 

This request comes to us from Lois’ loving daughter. She writes: “My mom, age 88, and dad, 92, have been married for over 67 years. Mom has been the sole caregiver for my dad since he suffered a debilitating stroke 14 years ago. She has been totally devoted to caring for him. Three weeks ago she had to have knee replacement surgery and for the first time in 67 years they are separated until she recovers. They are both having such a hard time being apart. She is in a rehabilitation center and working so hard at her physical therapy so that she'll be able to come home and care for him once again. Unfortunately, due to her age her recovery is not going as well as she'd hoped. She could really use some love letters and encouragement.” Let’s put pen to paper and lift Lois’ spirits today!

Please send all love letters to: 
(We ask that all love letters be in the mailbox by December 20th!)
