Leslie Ludy is one of the people i look up to the most in the world and i've read several of her books. i was going through some papers and i found my favorite quote from her book "When Dreams Come True" and felt i would share it with you.
"A letter represents something far more than a kiss ever could. it evidences thoughtfulness and the gift of time. While a kiss can prove tender, it must overcome the stigma of impulsivness to truly display love. A letter on the other hand, when written in the spirit of ardor and romance--even if it never mentions passion--strokes the heart deeper than any form of physical touch. A kiss cannot be felt again and again from great distance; but a letter can be read and reread thousands of times. A kiss only fimiliarizes the lips with the physical body of a lover. A letter farmiliarizes the heart, mind, and soul. Maybe that's why God decided to write us a letter."
i read this "When dreams come true" years ago and have still hung onto this quote. it seems to touch me everytime i read it.
i hope you found the comfort and inspiration that i did in it:)
