Re The Lost Art of Letter Writing

Please have a look at this great post my daughter Sarah has written about writing letters.


My two eldest daughters are very good letter writers and correspond regularly with people from all over. I myself have let letter writing pass by the wayside, but I think I might get back into it again. It is a nice feeling when you receive a hand written letter from a dear friend or relative instead of just bills and junk mail.

Have a great day,



  1. Hi Tania,
    My daughter loves writing to her penpal. ☺

  2. I just got a letter this week and thought what a rare joy it is

  3. Thanks for sharing this. It's funny how nice it is to go to your mailbox and find a letter from someone you haven't heard from in a while....amidst your bills and junk mail. Yeah Letter Writing!

  4. Thank you Tania! I really enjoyed reading your daughters post, it was beautiful and I feel really inspired to put pen to paper and encourage my family to do the same.


  5. Tania, thanks for sharing that. Its so true, a life without letters is a life with something missing. When I was a newlywed and moved from southern Victoria to north Queensland, I wrote and received letters regularly from family and friends I had left behind. I've kept them all in a box.
    Partly because we moved back 'home' and partly because of email, I can't remember the last time I wrote to someone. Its such a shame. Its also sad that our kids will never know that feeling of opening a letter from a special friend. You can't compare that to the dozens of daily 'nothings' people tap out to each other on Facebook, can you?

  6. I have to say I agree, letter writing is beginnng to be a lost art. I myself only write by hand, regularly to one person, which is sad.
