The 12 DAYS OF LOVE LETTER WRITING project continues.

While my draft to Ann Maria ‘cools’, thought I would check in.

Hoping your season is still revealing blessings.

Here is an 11-second tour of
most of the More Love Letters requests.

Here is the current list of requests
–updated daily.

Confession…I’m falling behind! Luckily, I have till the 22nd to get them in the mail.

If you do participate, why not create a quick word cloud highlighting that person’s special traits? Then print it out on the paper you’ll use for your letter.

More ‘goodwill words’ for loveforourelders.org folks

memories are timeless treasures of the heart

It’s as if I’m getting to know the recipients.

In reality, though, I don’t know where these are sent.

But I’ve always trusted Love for Our Elders to find those deserving people.

And its Instagram pages continue to encourage me.

Creating postcards for my ‘Goodwill Words’ project

I made a 3+ minute video showing how the iPad and the Canva app can team up to generate postcards to share as needed. [email, text message, print-and-send]

Here are a few holiday-themed samples I made on Canva…

A favorite destination for ‘goodwill words’


I’ve recently posted about writing being an act of faith.

In this case, I have faith that my notes to…

https://loveforourelders.org/letters

lift someone’s day.

For sure, they distract me from lots of other disquieting stuff happening out there in the world. [And they remind me that others are hurting so much out there.]


Plenty of writers are directing their thoughts and support to folks they know and some they don’t know, so my ‘project’ is nothing new or unique.

But it’s something that makes sense.

And…

  • it is a self-sustaining ‘volunteer opportunity’, which have dwindled ‘a bit’ since mid-March.
  • it’s one more feel-good checklist item for my day’s end ‘review’.
  • it’s so much better than watching the news.
  • it provides a layer of human contact
  • it’s been fun and rewarding and it will continue.

Let me know if you want to join me. I have a raft of resources that will make the project doable.

Many opportunities for ‘goodwill words’

First of all, these posts have nothing to do with giving myself props.

They have everything to do with encouraging others to find a little corner in their daily/weekly schedule and jot down/hunt-and-peck a thought or two for someone else’s benefit.

When I finished posting the note above on legacy.com, it hit me that some opportunities for goodwill writing can reach out and thunk us on the forehead. This was one of those times.

While Fred is reading it from ‘another place’, I hope it brings some comfort and a smile to his family. He was a special guy.


Nothing special, I realize, nothing earth-shaking or life-changing, but as writers, every time we put pen to paper, it’s an act of faith. In this case, I have faith that these simple items will improve a someone’s day, even just a little bit.

My ‘goodwill words’ project continues…

I sent this one yesterday. I took out the word cloud and the greeting to provide a layer of privacy for the person, even though her story is featured on moreloveletters.com. I hope the words give special people like this recipient a little shot in the arm.
