Welcome to the Group/Introductions Part II June 17, 2006 9:03 AM

anonymous I'm back, if you'll have me~ December 11, 2006 11:27 PM

Hello Everyone~
 
I was a member of this wonderful group for a long time. Things became rather difficult in my life and finding spare time was hard. I had to drop many groups. But I'm happy to say that things are becoming better and I'm back.
I'll never forget the love, support and endless cards you'al sent my daughter while she was so ill. She still has them as well as the gifts that were sent. I'm so grateful to say she has totally recovered. She is 11 years old going on 25! We are still home schooling even though she's well enough to return to school. We loved the freedom that home school gave us plus we have a local support group for home schoolers that has been a great blessing to us both.
I thought I'd make this group apart of our home schooling and have Missy write and send cards to some of the children. Especially since she knows how it feels to be ill and how receiving cards made her feel better. She even says at times that she missed being ill because now that she's all better she doesn't get any snail mail!
Actually a special thank you needs to go out to Roxane. Who still remembers Missy with e-mails, cards and post cards. She loves hearing from you.
I'm happy to be back~

This is such a wonderful idea and it touches my heart because as a mother I know that if my child were sick it would be wonderful to receive a card knowing that someone cares! I can't wait to get started!  [report anonymous abuse]

I am chronically ill (diabetes plus fibromyalgia) so I know what it is like to be sick and not visited.  (Often times my only visitors were birds at the window.)  Sending a card is a way to "visit" a sick child.  Jesus taught that visiting the sick is one of the most important things that we can do.  My daughter and I enjoy making cards so this should be fun.    [ send green star]

Thanks for the invite, this is a wonderful cause, and I will do what I can to contribute, by the grace of God, I was blessed with a healthy daughter, and a healthy grandson. But, I am eager to be a stronghold of hope for some child, that needs prayers, or someone just to say I am thinking of you, and Jesus loves you Just as much as he loves all of us.

I am so happy that I found this group. I would love to be able to send happy mail to sick children. I am blessed with 3 healthy children and thank God everyday for that. There are sick children in my family and I know what the parents go thru. I want to do what I can to try and make things a little more bearable for all of them.  [ send green star]
