Snail Mail What is that?

*Laughs* I purposely used this photo of a very old trunk I took a photo of years ago.  When we think of snail mail today, it sort of reminds us of something ancient-old something from the past that is almost forgotten.  At least it does to me... today's world of technology is taking over and soon it makes you wonder if there will even be a need for humans in the future. Okay, that may be carrying it a little too far, but you get my point.

I remember how excited I use to get to go to the mailbox and there would be a letter in there for me from a friend I had not heard from forever it seemed.  I would open the letter and read it a few different times to make sure I understood everything that was being said. Perhaps I read it so many times because I missed that friend terribly!! By reading the letter, it seemed (in some small way) really good to know I was not forgotten.

I also remember opening snail mail letters that would often be letters of apologies perhaps from a friend I had not heard from in a long time because we stopped communicating for some unknown reason that neither of us could really explain. 

But here is what I do know, no matter how much time goes by, I will always become excited to open a letter that came to me via snail mail.  I miss the personal feelings from letters, it always felt nice to know someone cared enough to take a few minutes out of their busy life to write a note.

Call me old fashion, call me ancient, it does not matter, but I will never give up on things in life that matter to me from years gone by.  Besides, as long as it is important to me, nothing else matters!!

So my rant for today is this:  Remember how it made you feel to open a letter from the mailbox? You can make someone feel that same joy; by just taking a few minutes and writing a few sentences to let them know you are doing ok and hanging in there. Trust me, it will bring a smile to your friend's face.  

What are your thoughts on snail mail?


  1. Its true, getting a handwritten letter in the mail is a special feeling like no other, and I am sad to see it becoming one more thing we've lost that made us human...

    1. I totally agree Dawn. It seems like I keep seeing things disappear that once was a normal everyday thing we did. Truly, it saddens my heart.
