Summary
  • Special Words is a collection of over two hundred actual letters, organized by theme, that readers can use for inspiration or as a starting place for their own notes. In this age of computers and form letters, Joyce's examples can help us recover a time-honored tradition that goes back to biblical days. You'll find sample letters in chapters that offer "special words" for: Special Days - birthdays, weddings, anniversaries of all sorts; Thanks - and not just your ordinary
  • thank-you cards; Relationships - including love notes for the pillows of your loved ones; appreciation of neighbors, fellow church members, and those who help you; people in grief or pain, including the sick, the ostracized, and the deeply wounded; Apologies - both lighthearted and deeply healing; people with specific hurts, such as mothers who have miscarried; "Balcony People" - those who cheer for you and those you cheer for; appreciation of an employer and thanks to a
  • prospective employer; and the person whose name comes up in prayer times. There are even samples for letters that you will never send, but that should be written - those letters to the difficult ones in our lives whom we don't wish to hurt but whom we must address silently. In addition, in a chapter all its own, Joyce offers hard-won wisdom and sample letters for those deeply affected by breast cancer. Best of all, each chapter starts out with Joyce's "letters" to the
  • reader - her own "special words" offering the compassion, encouragement, and deep sensitivity Joyce's readers have loved and learned to depend on
