I try to write him daily, but sometimes things just get really busy. And then I feel guilty, like I slept too long and I could have been writing him. And my letters are only like a page long. I almost feel like that makes me a bad girlfriend, but I don't have tons to say. I mean me babbling about me missing him can get annoying after a while, right?

Smile all the time

I write all the time. I'm not sure why, just my way of including him in the day to day life of the outside. He says it helps him stay connected to "out here".

I write everyday whether I type up a letter, handwrite one or write in a card. 6 days a week he gets something. once a month he gets pics usually no less than 20 pics and now once a month he will get a correspondence tape. We are cutting back on phone calls and visits so the tapes will be nice for him.

I dont write as much as I used too. My husband always complains about me not writing him. I used to get mail everyday except on Sunday and Monday because of how the mail ran. I still get between 3 to 5 letters a week but I talk to my husband for a few hours a day on the phone so I really dont have much to write about it just easier to wait for him to call. But I do still try to write sometimes because he loves getting mail especially love mail.

I try to write a little something everyday... post it off when he doesn't realise... he likes the suprise but because he's in the states and im in Australia it takes 7-10 working days to get to him. But it's worth the wait.

I feel silly for even asking but it is a serious question that my husband has. I had looked up CCSP site and noticed quite a few pen pal requests. I told my husband and he was ok with it.


I write to 2 high profile men and we have now been writing for months, I wish for the names to be anonymous. I am sure you all understand. I felt that I wanted to extend our support to others. I have a brother that is in KY (in London KY), recently setanced to 3 years.

My husband is a Jr. High teacher and very loving etc. and the fact that he is willing to spend money to give these men stamps, supplies etc is very generous for him to do. I am a stay at home mom to a 19 month old and a 2 1/2 year old. I will be done with my Master's degree in Forensic Science in April 2008. I hope to help a lot of people with it. I am also a retired teacher, ha stopped before baby #1.

He is worried that if I write to some of these men that if they are married or with another woman that the woman would get upset or jealous.

It seams silly but I thought for his piece of mind I would ask. Thanks.

If you know of anyone that does not get that much mail, I would more than happy to write to them.

Thank you for your time. May God bless you all and all of your loved ones.

P.S.
My dad is visiting and I am asking him how his time was at SQ, for he was later found not guilty for armed robbery. This forum has helped me finally talk to him.

Default Yep daily

Although I talk to my husband everyday, I make it a habit to at least send him a little note daily to remind him that I am thinking of him and that I love him.

I usually send a couple letters a week, and I've also sent a book. I like to get replies so that we can have meaningful conversations. Not just me telling him what is going on here at home.

The 1st go round I would write everyday sometime 3 x's a day but with time I just can't get in the mood 2 write. We try 2 talk on the phone once a week if the phones r working and he can get a turn at them. I don't know why it has been so hard 4 me 2 write this time.

We write each other once a week. But, that's only b/c it takes the letter forever and a half to get to its destination.
