From Crutch to Pen

Hallmark has become the icon of sharing from the heart words you want to say, but aren’t sure how.  For many it has become the only way we tell our spouses what we’re thinking. What started as a help could end up as a crutch, if we aren’t careful. Watch this humorous video to see what we mean:

There is nothing wrong with buying a card.  In fact we highly encourage it.  However, if greeting cards are the only means used to express your deepest sentiments, it might be time to think about it more purposefully.

We have found a campaign titled, One Million Love Letters.  We linked to it briefly on Monday’s post, but after looking at it more closely we wanted to highlight it more prominently today.

Here’s how it works you select the style of letter you want to send.  Then take time to follow the writing prompts to help you say what’s on your heart and mind.  Afterward it will give you the opportunity to add a photo or a quote.  Finally, choose to download it to print yourself, or to e-mail it.  The cost is $3.75 – about the price of a Hallmark greeting card.

So, why not join the campaign and send a love letter to the love of your life.  It may just be one of those moments they cherish forever!

    I was trying to remember the last time I wrote my wife a love letter and sent it to her. The thought was prompted by your closing line, “It just may be one of those moments they cherish forever.” If one letter is cherished forever I must not be sending enough of them. How much better if she cherish that I write her love letters on a regular basis than she cherish one in a lifetime because I only write one or two in the lifetime of our marriage. Thanks for the encouragement. Thanks for the challenge.
