Over the last nine months or so I have received a few requests to be pen pals with someone. Usually when this happens I like to be the first one to send something out, but when my last request came to me I was in the middle of so many things I asked them to start the chain of letters. It was fun to know that eventually I might get something from this new person, but not know when to expect it. After weeks I had thought maybe they changed their mind, but today I got a letter with an unknown handwriting.
It was fun to open a new letter without knowing what I would find inside. What would their handwriting be like? What would they say? Will there be any other goodies?
The answer to all the questions were positive. The handwriting was legible and very teacherly. The letter flowed beautifully and gives me many wonderful ideas to write back about, and inside was beautiful paper squares that I will need to find the perfect project for.
There really is something wonderful about starting a new pen pal relationship.
Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.
