In the good old days, people used pens and paper to communicate with each other. They wrote official documents and romantic love notes but now handwritten letters are rare. It’s easy to instantly connect with another person online as we send direct messages in the blink of an eye.
There’s something special now about receiving a handwritten letter because it’s so uncommon. We treasure it when a friend or family member takes the time to write to us because nobody does it anymore. There’s a good reason for this but it doesn’t change the fact that they provide unique memories (via Simply Noted).
