Handwritten Letters

by Joy Monger

My best friend is out of the country on her honeymoon, celebrating her lovely husband and their committment to each other, with cloud forests and pina coladas. 

But before she left for two weeks of romance she made sure to post a valentine to me so that I would know that I am loved and cherished.  It had the perfect mix of quirk and mirth (it included an inside joke about a camel in the desert) so that I knew she found that card just especially for me.

The only thing better than receiving handwritten letters in the mail is the knowledge that they were sent by someone who loves you just the way you are.
