When I was a little girl, I used to write letters to one of the elderly ladies that resided in the nursing home my grandmother worked at.
I remember her telling me how much those letters meant to her.
Recently, GUS (Meet GUS) told me that we need to write letters again.
Letters From GUS is a new feature here on the blog, but it’s one that doesn’t have a specific day it will be posted. Just whenever GUS deems it “necessary”.
Much like the letters I used to send to “Mrs Williams”, though, the purpose of these posts may be to grant clarity and perspective or just uplift your spirit when you most need it.
You can think of them much like “letters from Home”.
And because these “letters” are for you, as a member of our community, if you have a question you would like to pose to GUS, please feel free to email us with it.
(Please note: Because we want to encourage members of our community to reach out to us with their questions if you do so, your name will be kept anonymous as well as any identifying details or information.)
