It's a very common somewhat cliched but polite way of ending a personal letter. (Though usually not posed as a question.) Translate it as you will!

The part that was confusing me a bit was that this is from a video that I use for listening practice.  But it is true the video does have subtitles, so the verb "write" would fit.  Thanks!

Exactly,  very good example of the need to learn about Chinese culture and customs,  because language does not exist in a vacuum.

Good one.  Imagine a non-native trying to figure out that meaning.
