What’s a Letter?    

 
 
 

from Clipart.com

Yes, it does seem most would say that now—unless you are talking about an annual Christmas letter. Before texting, email, and  faxes, people a few decades ago wrote letters. They didn’t even rely on the sentiments in commercial greeting cards—they wrote their own sentiments.

Because they are so special to us, Jack and I still have all the letters we’ve written to each other.

Wouldn’t it be nice to read a letter from your spouse if your spouse is away on a trip?
 
Or, you can write a letter of your thoughts about what your spouse means to you and how you’ve grown and changed (in a good way) because of your spouse.  One of the most notable letter writing people was President Ronald Regan. He wrote many love letters to Nancy, his wife. Some of these have since been published in book form.

The following is from June 8,  2004 in an MSNBC article at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4201869/:

From the time they met in 1950, through the 1990’s, Ronald Reagan wrote letters to his wife, Nancy. No matter what else was going on in his life or where he was – traveling to make movies or for G.E., in the California governor’s office, at the White House, or on Air Force One, and sometimes even from across the room— Ronald Reagan wrote letters to Nancy Reagan, to express his love, thoughts, and feelings and to stay in touch.

The MSNBC site lists some poignant excerpts from a few of the letters which were published in a book, I Love You, Ronnie. However, the site had express copyright to seek permission from Random House Publishers in order to post any of the excerpts. I didn’t want to take the time to do that, so I’ll just say, buy a copy of the book or borrow one from your library. 

(Would you like to receive a letter, even in today’s world, from your marriage partner? Would you write one to your spouse? You can tell us your opinion in the comment section below.)
