This goal was inspired by Girls With Guts' Pen Pal Program. This year, when I filled out my holiday cards, for some people I wrote a more personal message, and I got a wonderful card back with a personal message, too. I was so touched. So when I'm trapped in the bathroom, or on the couch, I can write a letter, and I don't have to worry about how I look, or what smells are escaping me. There's something about that personal, handwritten connection that makes me feel better, especially when it's friends and family I don't get to see that often. If sending a postcard, or a trinket is a better route for you, go that way!
