Pen pal request

I am a senior and live alone. I am wanting to explore the pen pal program. I think it would be a way to stay social. Because of hand contractures it's difficult for me to write cursive but I can use email, text, messenger no problem. Wondering if there are pen pals who use these systems.

I am a retired Disability Law Advocate.

 Hi Marion,

My name's Jody and I'm a 63 yr old disabled widower. I'm so glad to have happened upon your post! I have Peripheral neuropathy and diabetes with complications. My hands are in constant discomfort; they feel like chunks of ice. t

Thus my interest in your post. 

 I'm currently in a Skilled Nursing Facility undergoing rehab from a serious infection that almost cost me my leg! 

Anyway, if you're still in the market for a pen pal, I'd like to give it try.

Sincerely,

Jody

Margareta, how very nice to hear from you! I live alone now as my sister passed last year. Since this pandemic and winter here in Missouri has isolated me most days I thought a pen pal connection would be a nice way to connect socially. I have two little dogs that keep me company, a little rescue dachshund named Buster who is seven and a miniature Greyhound who is 14 Delilah. I have four children my oldest daughter passed away from cancer when she was 39 but the other three live pretty close to me and I have 8 grandchildren and 4 Great grandchildren.

I was a single mom raising four children so the busyness of that and working jobs constantly I find myself wondering how to fill the time with this empty nest LOL
