One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Mail it Monday and a Sympathy

These cards are going out in the mail for Mail it Monday in time for the 4th of July!
I have a couple of aunts who are 95 and 93 and I send them cards often, couldn't let the 4th go by without a little card telling them I am thinking of them!

And about 6 months ago I met a lady in an assisted living facility.  I visited her every Wednesday and brought her communion and the Word...she would have been 95 this August.
She was a sweet and wise woman, she raised 5 children by herself and served in the military too!
You have heard the saying about people coming into your life for a reason, for a season or for a lifetime?  Well, she was in my life for a very short season, but she made an impact on my life.  She was full of wisdom and listened to my story and then provided me with thoughts in dealing with family issues.  She will be missed, but I am better for having known her!
