The Special Art of Writing Letters
Our family recently lost a dear friend.
She was in the hospital, nursing home, back to the hospital and then to hospice.
My mom taught my sister and I the importance of writing letters at an early age.
Taking time to write a friend, it means so much to that person.
During our friends time in the hospital, nursing home and hospice. She kept my mom's letters. My mom made it a practice to write Irma a letter each and every Monday during her illness.
While in hospice, she asked for the letters to be read to her again and again.
My parents live on a farm. They have all kinds of fun things going on. They have cows having calves, chickens, pigs and of sharing about family adventures in the letters too.
I wrote Irma as well, sharing about our boys, our adventures and our garden.
While writing the letters I did not know how important they would become later for her.
