|Waiting for mail, watercolor card|
|Letter from Grandmother to my Dad--real mail|
No wonder it's a treat when "real mail," arrives--a personal letter or card, hand addressed, always first opened and treasured. It's the personal touch missed today in the digital world. I wouldn't take for the ability to "Skype" my kids who are far away, and for our military stationed far away from their families. But, real mail takes us back to the days when there was more such mail, letters written because it was the cheapest and best or only way to stay in touch with loved ones and friends, across the years and miles. We need that personal touch more than ever these days.
