Dear My Billet Doux...

 

I just received the most wonderful note from my 7 year old...my own "billet doux" to cherish.

I think we sometimes have to take example from our children- they write straight from the heart without inhibitions- we should too.

Are you able to write easily? Or do you find it hard like I do?

Dear My Billet Doux

I have just discovered this fantastic website which you migt guess from my title is called "The world needs more love letters". The idea is simple but effective- you nominate a person you LOVE and you get the WORLD to write a letter to them. 

I have just written to a girl named Lucy, who is 10 and is bullied at school for her looks.
