Love Letters and Cards

Inside this box are love letters and cards hubby and I gave to each other when we were still on a courting and dating stage. That was more than 10 years ago and it’s been years since I last opened this box. I accidentally saw it again when I was cleaning the house.

I used to give special cards to my loved ones especially to Rhonnel. What was so special about my cards? They were all handcrafted. I personally made them. Below are some of the cards I made for Rhonnel.

Oh, those were the sweet days. Well, Rhonnel and I are still sweet to each other and love spending so much time together. It’s just that we don’t give each other letters and cards anymore. And I must admit I miss receiving love letters. I know, I know, it sounds corny. But don’t you miss receiving one again from your husband or wife?

In this fast-paced life, there’s is a growing disappearance in the practice of sitting down with paper and pen to communicate our love. That is one of the disadvantages of this high tech world. Nobody writes love letters anymore. Why would they bother when they can text exactly what they wanted to say and can send e-card in a snap? But can you read it again after 10 or 20 years?That’s the edge of love letters and cards over text messages and e-cards. If you will keep them carefully, you can look into it again after 10, 20 or even 30 years after. There is also something magical about love letters that text messages and e-cards don’t have. Love letters seem to have that magnetic-pull-to-your-heart. I think that is what I am missing, the goose bumps while reading love letters.
