My Lenten promise is to write a letter a day, and mail it, to someone in my life. Someone I love, admire, have forgiven, maybe haven’t forgiven (but accepted), and someone who helped me grow with positive or negative actions. My goal is to mail it if I see it best fit.

This started yesterday, and the first letter was to my dad. Here’s a spark note version of it..

Dear Dad,

I am writing to tell you, I love you! This last year had been hard for been but I knew I was going to make it threw because you were always by my side. You taught me how to be reasonable, how to lead with example, how leaders eat last, and how loved ones always help each other. You taught me to put other first, and if they care their actions will show. You taught me genuine love, with mom. You taught me how to enjoy loved ones and take breaks ( Hillbilly Sunday ). You taught me to be myself. You are my best friend. You’re my siblings best friend. You make us laugh, and you always make me smile. I love you.

  1. Such an ambitious promise, especially with slicing! I hope it brings you joy. I know the receivers will definitely experience joy getting your heartfelt letters. 🙂


  2. You will make your dad cry with this letter! Thanks for the reminder that we should all take the time to write or tell those special to us some special words every once in a while. It’s amazing how a few words could be a life changer!


  3. This is a sweet commitment—and therapeutic, too. Lent adds to your March blogging commitment. Hang in there.


  4. I love this idea. It reminds me that I need to reach out to people that I, too, need to forgive, thank or just to say, hello. Maybe it’s time for me to do that too. Thanks for the inspiration and best of luck to you.


  5. Awesome idea! Because technology has taken over, letters are a thing of the past, but I bet you will make MANY people happy when they receive the letter. A letter is way better than an email or text.:) Happy letter writing!


  6. This is so sweet! I love that you’ve chosen to spend Lent this way. I can only imagine how thrilled your dad will be to receive your letter!
