Love Letters from Seniors

Love Letters from Seniors

The Holiday season is creeping up on us quickly this year. For many, this is an exciting time full of love, laughter and family get togethers. We look forward to those turkey dinners, and watching the kids and grandkids running around with big smiles as they play with their new Christmas gifts. For others, it may be a time of great loneliness with dreary feelings being brought up from the past. Not all people have good memories during the holiday season, and its easy to forget that there’s not always warm feelings for some people when the love and warmth of our own families surround us.

Everyone deserves to feel loved. Everyone deserves to feel like they matter, and their existence in this world is needed. If you’re wondering what you can do in your community to help spread the love and positive vibes to those who may need it this year, try out this activity. At MLP Residence, we are starting a new yearly tradition to help spread the love in our community. We will be writing Love Letters from Seniors to the people in our community.

We’ve all had a bad day here and there, maybe many bad days. Think of a time when you had a bad day and felt like nothing was going right. What would you need to hear that day to help lift your spirit and remind you that everything is going to be okay. That’s what we want to write in these letters; positive, uplifting messages and reminders for those to keep their chin up and remember that everything will work out the way it is meant to.

All you need is paper and a pen or pencil to write a letter. They don’t need to be on fancy stationary or in a pretty envelope. Fold up the paper and leave it in a place where you know someone will find it. Some great places to leave love letters would be at a grocery store, or at the park. Anywhere you can think of, especially if you see people struggling in that area. They may need an inspiring love letter more then others during this time. Make sure you put “If you found this letter, it is for you! Open me!” on the outside of your paper so people know to pick it up and read it. Happy writing everyone!
