...our kids don't learn to read and write in Cursive!
I cannot believe that schools don't teach cursive writing anymore! Seriously?!? That's one of my fondest memories from grade school - and I seriously can't remember much LOL. I loved those notebooks with the dotted lines and the examples of how to perfectly write every letter in CURSIVE. I bit my tongue like kids do when they're really concentrating and gave it everything I had.!!
I've always loved writing - and by that I mean simply writing. I love just about anything handwritten: notes & greetings, journal entries, study notes (Man, I love to take notes!) and checks (yep, you heard me), and little love notes to my hubby and cards to my Mama... I think you get the point. I have a bunch of JOURNALS 'cause I simply cannot get enough of them. They are so beautiful and so BLANK and ready for WORDS. Ohhh the possibilities!
I don't know what ya'll are gonna do but I've decided I'm just gonna have to KEEP WRITING! If you feel the same please let me know. I NEED to know I'm not the only one. LOL I'm quite certain I'm not!
I realize that I'm actually BLOGGING this post on the lost art of HANDWRITING, but I think that's my point. Blogging is good. Texting is great! Email is wonderful! But, it's not the ONLY WAY. Every now and again how about you surprise and delight someone with your very own handwritten note. I GUARANTEE they will love it and you'll feel awesome.
So! Here's to the written word. It would be a real CURSE-IF we stopped writing with our very own hands and relied solely on our computer keyboards to communicate.
WILL YOU JOIN ME? Let's keep CURSIVE alive people! Teach your children. There's not much better than a handwritten note from a child is it? A handwritten sentiment truly is a beautiful thing...even when it's completely illegible. LOL That just makes life more interesting and keeps us on our toes.
If I could I'd sign my name right here in beautiful black ink.
