In this modern era of emails, texts and instant messaging, the art of the handwritten letter is now a cherished but old tradition that younger generations will never get the opportunity to appreciate. While technology has helped our society grow, the art of letter-writing should not be forgotten. Handwritten notes are far more personal and I remember as a child writing and receiving handwritten letters from my Grandmother. I kept them in a gorgeous little box and every time I read them, memories come flooding back. A handwritten letter can become a cherished possession for the recipient for years. The time, care and thought that goes into them, makes you appreciate them so much more than an email. So take the time to hand-write a letter to someone you know. All you need is a pen and paper and some caring words from the heart. Padtastic have a gorgeous selection of notepads that will help make memories for your loved ones.
“Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the mother of the family,as well as motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society.”
In celebration of Mother’s Day approaching I thought I’d take this opportunity to recognise and show my appreciation for the strong, empowering women I’m lucky enough to have in my life!
