Friends, picture this::
You're sitting at your kitchen table, writing a letter with words laced in nothing but love to a complete stranger — words that remind this human that despite rocky, shadowy and lonely times, they are not only loved, but also seen, worthy, valuable and brave. Now place yourself in the shoes of the person who will open your letter.
You've come home one day with a heart that has been heavy for a while to find a loved one with a bundle of letters — a bundle of letters all meant for you, written by hundreds of strangers. Letters full of encouragement and words that remind you you're not walking through this life alone. These letters express that other people want to lift up some of your burdens and love on you for the length of a piece of stationary.
Let's write some letters. Twelve, to be exact. The time for The 12 Days of Letter Writing has officially arrived, so get that stationary, your favorite pen and strings of sentences ready. We have twelve people to love on. Yesterday was the official kickoff on the More Love Letters blog and each day (until Dec. 15) will unveil another sweet soul's story. Click here to see Kat's and Ashley's stories, and keep checking back every day until Dec. 15 for another person to write to.
The holiday season can be tough. I know that, you probably know that. Loving on others can help keep our hearts a little lighter.
PS:: I'm SO super excited to be one of the Influencers for the project, along with my writing accountability partner, Gabbie Cook -- We (along with a few other stunning ladies) will be blogging and social media blasting for MLL!!
Soooooo.... Keep it social! If you feel called to participate — maybe for all of the twelve days, or maybe for just one story that particularly tugs on your heart, write a letter. Then use #MLL12DAYS on Instagram and Twitter to share your letter and help spread the word of this beautiful mission!
