Writing is a helpful way to practice self-care. These are not letters to send to others, but letters to express your thoughts and feelings.
I relish the gift of finding a personal letter in my mailbox, especially on hard days. Written words have a unique capacity to convey God’s grace (as described in Chronic Joy’s printable resource, #PenToPaper). I vividly recall a particular afternoon when the Lord used a simple note card to bring me much-needed hope.
I love snail mail. Who doesn’t love opening their mailbox and finding something besides a bill or flyer? So, I try to mail cards to people for birthdays, new babies, or weddings, but I also want to send them “just because.”
The legacy of my grandmother’s intentional kindness lives on as Chronic Joy extends birthday greetings and more with You Get Mail.
