In a world of texts, emails, Facebook messages, Instagram comments, and the myriad other ways we communicate these days, nothing gives you that warm fuzzy feeling quite like receiving a piece of personal snail mail. Such correspondence has become so scarce it has started to feel like a relic of the past—but why should it? You make a loved one’s day when you send a birthday card, thank-you note, or simple “hello” by mail. In April—which happens to be National Letter Writing Month—take the time to pen a handwritten note to a pal. We promise it will be appreciated.
