Do you write letters on a regular basis? Is this an important habit to model for our children? How do we renew appreciation for letters?
I agree that people should not be forced to write letters, but there must be some way to get young people excited about doing it themselves, which sometimes involves the suggestion that they write a letter or card. Modeling letter writing as a parent and as a teacher is also important. Hopefully when people receive a heartfelt letter they want to reciprocate.

That is so cool. I have also made my own holiday cards many times, and I have a number of friends who have designed postcards or decorated their letters and envelopes with art. In fact, I have kept hundreds of such letters and have been incorporating them into a blog called Life Letters. It's been amazing and fun to reread and enjoy all those old letters again.

I think it's fantastic that you wrote those letters to your children, and the fact that they didn't appreciate them at the time doesn't mean that they won't down the road. I just posted a blog entry (Life Letters: lswatson.blogspot.com) regarding a childhood friend of mine who died at 38 - I have dozens of letters from her that I treasure. A letter can be read and reread, savored and saved.
