Most of us probably know an older person who may or may not live alone. Let's make a Thinking of You card and actually send it out. If you don't know anyone, send it to a local nursing home and address it to "Someone Special" or any other phrase you can think of. Let's cheer up some people today.....your cards will make a huge difference in a stranger's life!
I have been taking my aunt who broke both legs last November to our local Veteran's Administration Home to play luncheon music for the vets who live there. What a privilege this has been! Not only have I enjoyed her music from their era, but I have enjoyed watching those old guys get together and eat their lunch. Seeing men this age who have lost limbs or are there due to age and no one to take care of them has deeply touched me and given me a new respect for vets! My great uncle served in WWI as a foot soldier and my uncle, who is still living at age 100, served in WWII as a bomber pilot. I have been privileged to sit and listen to their tales of valour. Say a prayer for all our vets …. we would not be the USA without their service and valour!
My card is going to the VA for a vet....where you gonna send yours? Nursing homes are a wonderful place too. So, don't forget to mail it to "Someone Special"! Thanks!
BTW: This was a Decoupage Pack I got at our local stamp store....I did not do the coloring....just the placement, but I thought it made a "pick me up" card and I like how it turned out. Hope my vet likes it too!
