Faded on the edges from so much love

"Sharing handwritten letters is one of the best ways to cultivate and maintain a friendship. Through letters, we can always be there to cheer each other on during joyful times and to offer comfort when facing misfortune. A letter can be read, tucked away, and reread later to allow friends to visit, console, and make each other laugh again. When we correspond with friends regularly,even grey lonely days can be brightened by putting pen to paper to recount a shared memory or, if we are lucky, simply by checking the mail."
~ Diane Maurer-Mathison

I want to write to friends and family and have them skip with joy coming from the mailbox because they have gotten a letter from me. I want them to look inside that mailbox and have a huge smile spread across their face because they spotted an envelope and right away knew that it was from me.
I want to write something that will over time be worn on the edges and faded because it has been brought out time after time and read again and again.

How am I going to do this?
What am I going to do that will make this happen?
Where do I start?
