12 Days of Giving #6

Make sure you’ve added your name in the FIRST of the 12 Days of Giving posts.

Okay, now that everyone is back; this is another challenge that will take time, but not much money.

Give a letter of encouragement.

Some people are very very good at this. It doesn’t have to be long, like pages and pages, but even a few lines can make a huge difference in a person’s day. Who can you write to? Your parents/ children/ siblings/ friends/ relatives/ teachers/ co-workers/postal carrier/ bank teller/ pastor/ someone in the military service/ and many more.

One year when money was tight, my hubby and I exchanged letters as Christmas gifts. That’s all. A letter. He wrote how much he appreciated me and some of the highlights he saw in our past year. Some of the things he was looking forward to in the coming year. I cried when I read his note, and it meant more to me than any store bought goodie could ever have. I still have that letter…

If you’d like to be entered to receive an ebook ARC of WOLF NIP, you can add your comment here. Let me know- have you ever sent or received a letter that made someone smile? Or is there someone you plan to send one to now?

I sent one to a person that didn’t have anyone to write to while in boot camp. I’m pretty sure it made them happy bcuz we continued to write each other for a couple months.

My husband is an over the road truck driver & he is gone for weeks @ a time. He was out in CA to help my sister & my niecesmove to TX (like the sweetheat that he is). I was missing him so I wrote him a letter & made him some chocholate chip cookies just to tell him how much I missed, loved, & appriciated him. He was very surprised to show up @ my sister with a package waiting for him. The cookies were all gone but he still carries the letter with him while he travels. Tammy… Read more »

When i was in the military i did some letter writing. Not a lot but some when i was overseas in Saudi Arabia during the gulf war. A younger cousin of mine wrote me a letter asking me what it was like and would i please write back because she could get extra credit from her English teacher if i could. lol It was one of my favorite letters because it made me laugh and smile and i have a feeling my return one did the same for her.

When I was a missionary years ago the only form of communication we had was letter writing. Once a week I would sit down and write a letter to all of those people who were writing me. At the time my parents and young cousins wrote me faithfully. Recently my mom gave me a scanned copy of all the letters I wrote home, to go with all letters I received.

Thanks for the reminder, Viv–used to do this more often, but I know I LOVE getting notes from people, and know it lifts people’s spirits to put into words what I appreciate. I’m also trying to be better about cobbling together reviews for books I’ve loved, but that is a hard one–writing reviews is definitely a rare talent!

I like to leave my husband notes in his lunch box. He loves to read them while he eats his lunch.

I have sent out notes to my family & friends… just little pick me ups. Let them know they are in my thoughts and sending a little cheer their way. :D
I also encourage my 4 year old nephew to make little cards every now and then to give to his mommy & daddy…

Lately, I’ve found myself writing a lot to other moms of Kidney kids. Some I have to push toward other avenues of treatment, some I just have to let vent to me. One I helped calm down while her son got his transplant.

When my daughter was diagnosed, I knew nothing and was thrust into this medical madness. Now, I try to make sure other mama’s are not so lost as I was.

I have sent a little letter in a card to a friend. I hope it made her smile. I know her letters make me smile and I hope I can do the same for her.

I send a short note to my only living aunt about once a month, just to let her know I’m thinking about her. She is not on computers, so the only contact we have is through the notes we send back and forth. I always try to find some silly little notecard to make her smile, and sometimes she sends one back.

I loved when I would get cards in college from my parents if they knew I was having a tough time or a hard test.

When I was in High School, I had a few pen pals that were in the Military. I did it because it was something fun to do and I think it made the guys happy and not so lonely.

I have sent encouraging notes to a depressed friend via FB and text in addition to stopping by to check on her. I’ve also recently defended a new author from a particularly nasty and bitter reviewer.

I love this idea! There is a book I read called How FUll Is Your Bucket? It’s all about taking the time to encourage others and you will be encouraged too. So you fill others buckets with encouraging thoughts and nice things. My son’s school even does this they all have buckets with their name’s on them and they write eachother little notes. It’s been years since I read that book and it still sticks with me. :)
