Tonight's Biggest Loser was abbreviated due to the President's State of the Union address. No weigh in tonight. But there was a challenge in which the 4 teams from the Ranch competed against the green team (formerly of the Ranch, then exiled to the Unknowns) to determine which house would win letters from home. The Ranch team narrowly won.
It made me think about letters. Who writes them anymore? It's kind of a lost art, isn't it? Have you ever received a letter -- in a real paper envelope with a stamp on it -- offering encouragement for something you were facing or trying to do? How did that affect you?
What was the last letter you wrote and mailed to someone? I'll issue my own challenge tonight. Write a letter this week to someone. Encourage them. Affirm them. Amuse them. Delight them.
Who knows? You just might get a letter of your own in return.
