Spreading the Love

As I watched this video my heart filled with compassion and my eyes filled with tears.  Hannah Brencher writes love letters to strangers.  And the strangers write back to her.  And this simple act of love transforms lives.

When was the last time you put pen to paper and wrote an actual letter?  Not a greeting card you signed at the office, nor your annual Holiday mailing, but a person-to-person letter that included the words “I love you”?

My friend and mentor Stan Dale used to hand write at least one letter everyday, wishing someone a happy birthday.  People have kept those letters for decades.  Treasured them.

So, how about it?  Right now, grab a pen and paper and write a love letter…and, maybe, transform at least 2 lives – yours and whoever receives your letter.
