Day 56 Wrote a Letter to a Solider

Wrote a letter to a solider.

My husband suprised my for Valentine's Day by handing me 7 good deeds for Project Nice. He had never offically signed up. My husband is a quiet supporter, asking me if I had done my nice thing for the day. But I never expected him to do Project Nice for himself. He's very shy and doesn't like talking to people. He was able to do all the things in 3 days.

One of his nice things he did was to sign up to write letters to soliders.

He signed up at to write a letter every week for 3 months. I was highly impressed by this. It's a HUGE undertaking.

To help me do project nice, he gave me this week's solider

I wrote a letter to a solider. You would think this would be insanely easy for me, since I spend most of my day writing. Nope. I was only given a name and an address. It's very hard to write a letter to someone you've never met, what do you talk about?
According to Google I should ask the solider questions and share a little bit about myself. Yep, I did that. I told the solider about a story that happened to me in a public bathroom and about Project Nice.
I thanked the solider for her service and all that she has done.

I hope it make her smile. I don't think soldiers get nearly enough recognition for all that they do.

Please take a moment to go check out the website. It's an amazing organization.

Would I do it again? Yep. I'll help out my husband whenever he needs it.
Cost: A stamp ( I don't remember how much that costs)
Effort: I struggled with this one.
Time: about 20 minutes
