“Letters from Mom”

Mom wrote me hundreds of letters and would often send me greeting cards with snipped comics or articles from newspapers or magazines she thought I'd enjoy.

It’s a shame that we don’t write as many letters these days. I try to write my surviving (paternal) grandmother at least once each month, but she’s the exception. I write dozens of emails, tweets, and status updates every single day. They’re mostly meaningless.

Every letter I ever received from mom – even just a short thank you note like this – is meaningful.

Dear David,

I’m really grateful for all you’ve done for me over the summer.

I’m proud of you for being the man that you are.

Thank you,
