Letters are sacred mementos we lovingly save in decorative boxes.
Yet the gentle beauty of a hand-written letter seems hidden in our age of
text messages and emails. After working for five years on a novel comprised entirely of letters, I felt connected to what I consider the lost art of letter writing. However, not until I was diagnosed with breast cancer did I understand that a few words
on paper were more than just a keepsake. A hand-written letter is a gift with the ultimate power
Having just turned 40 and in the throes of writing my novel, being told I had cancer was a shock. But it wasn't the day of my diagnosis that changed my life. The true change came a few weeks later when I started receiving well wishes. The letters said I was already a hero without telling me
I needed to try a special diet or exercise plan. I was touched by the letters and began wondering
if other breast cancer patients were receiving this special form of support. After I won my battle with breast cancer, I knew just what I had to do.
_ Starting Girls Love Mail was one of those AHA moments. Anyone with a desire to encourage a woman can write a letter. Letter writers of all ages and from across the country are joining us. I hope you will too! All it takes is a little of your time and the cost of a stamp. I know what
receiving letters meant to me. I encourage you to give it a try and see how much writing one
will mean to you.
