How to Create A Keepsake Letter for Those You Love

We can all use more love in our lives, that’s for sure, and February is a perfect month to express our love to others.  Sometimes writing “you’re special to me” doesn’t feel like it gets to the heart of what I want to say. If you’ve ever thought that, here’s a workshop to inspire you to do find your words—just the right words—to express how you feel. 

I’ve paired two of my favorite sections from my book Well Seasoned: The Beauty of Age, to help you celebrate your friends. 

During this 90 minute session, you’ll remember the many friends you’ve known in your life and work through a process to identify why they’re special to you. You’ll end up with a keepsake letter—a letter they’ll keep forever and read again and again.

Two previous participants of this workshop told me about their experiences. One writes professionally and the other isn’t usually comfortable expressing herself in writing: 

“Jan’s class on friendship gave me new insights into the importance of the relationships woven through the fabric of my life. I appreciate the techniques she offers which gave me an opportunity to acknowledge these special relationships in tangible ways.” SMJ 

“When it comes to writing, I have trouble expressing what I want to say. The depth of what I feel inside doesn’t seem to come out on paper. So when the opportunity came to take Jan’s class to share my thoughts with my friends, I decided to take it. The way it was organized and taught made it easy for me to come up with a whole letter to my friend. I was able to write a heartfelt and extremely moving letter to my friend Dee, who was struggling to regain her health. I didn’t know if she was going to live or die. The class helped me translate my emotions into words that expressed my love for her. When I read my letter to her, the exchange between us was overwhelming. Jan made the class fun and easy and gave me confidence that I can be successful at getting my thoughts down on paper.” KL 

Consider this your invitation to join the group gathered on Zoom sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Francis for 90 minutes of friendship fun.
