My dad died over 4 years ago, but my mom still hasn't gone through all of his belongings. She threw some stuff away, donated his clothes to charity, kept some things...
Today, she found a pile of old letters that I wrote to my dad and that he kept preciously in a drawer. Letters and cards that I wrote between the ages of 8 and 12. In one of them, I thanked him for pulling one of my teeth out because I didn't have the courage to do it myself. Ah, memories!
I always loved writing, so I wrote letters and notes to my parents when I was younger. They did the same. Especially when one of us went away for a few days... My dad was an author so every year he went on tours around the country to visit students in schools. He would send me letters and postcards! I found them last week and was so excited! My parents, my sister and my friends also wrote me letters when I went to Ontario for 3 months as an exchange student when I was 14. I kept all of those letters.
Did any of you who are into penpalling write letters to your parents or family members when you were younger?
I no longer do it, but I'd like to start again! My mom started sending postcards to Louis-Justin in the mail recently and he loves it. Maybe I should surprise my mom and send her a little something too! :)
