Mother loved to write letters.
I can still remember that joyful look in her eyes when the gift of a letter would arrive in the mailbox. I knew never to interrupt Mother when she was "visiting with a friend". I also knew that it wouldn't be long before Mother was headed for paper and pen! It sometimes saddens me to realize that the art of handwriting has been all but forgotten in today's world! In Mother's world it was one of the greatest gifts she could ever receive!
I adored her!
