Write Me A Letter...

Do you remember a time when computers didn't exist? Cell phones were something we barely even knew about. Text messages? Huh..Yeah those were times that most of us don't remember since we have grown up with technology all around us.
One press of a button and we can email, pay bills, get concert tickets and the list goes on.
What about the times before cell phones and technology? People use to talk face to face and meet us to connect. People even wrote letters, yes real letters.
Relationships use to thrive on lovers sending emotional heartfelt letters professing their love written in their own handwriting. I would have loved writing a letter to my love, expressing my feelings and my desires in the pages. There is still something romantic about writing a letter.
I think now with the abundance of technology we have we've lost touch with the simple things. People rarely now take the time to write a personal letter, or send a a card.
Everything is now emails, text messages, social networks and more..I miss getting a card or a letter in the mail. I try to still write letters and send cards to people as an extra thank you or to brighten up their day.
I find doing that is that little personal touch and most people don't expect to get them. I hate texting people to say Happy Birthday because something gets lost in the sentiment of a text.
So tell me, do you like getting cards and letters in the mail? Do you still write letters and or cards?
