Let’s Start Off With The Good First

Left-Hand Side of the "Seasons Greetings:...

carved hallmark card

The third batch of cards came today and once again, I get to get on my knees and say thank-you to all of you and God for laying the desire to help with sending cards to Al.

I don’t know what I am going to do after they stop! LOL. Now each day when I go to the mailbox, he smiles real big, and says, I bet there is a card there for me!

Tonight, he could not open any of his cards. He was too weak, so I tore them open for him, and then he could not read the writing on any of them.

I had an eye doctor appointment for him last Friday, but because of his fall and many hours in the ER, I had to reschedule for this coming Friday. I did ask the doctor about his eyes today, and he said, Well, you know , there are muscles behind the eyes.

Ok, that was just what I wanted to hear. Thank-you very much for making me feel better!!!

Tonight, I want to give thanks to people who Al received cards from:

Andrea Kelly

Sheila and Michael, from Longing End

Marilyn Griffin



I will forever remember each of you for what you have done for my brother. He does smile so big when I hand him his cards, which is what I was hoping for.

If there is anyone that wants to still send a card, no pressures from me, just if there is anyone, please email me at


and I will give you a mailing address.

Bless each of you and all others who have been so gracious!

  1. Terry, I hope you don’t mind that I took the initiative, but I tweeted (shared on Twitter) this blog post. Hopefully we can keep those cards coming in. They seem to help both of you. 🙂


    • Oh thank you Tara. That is a wonderful idea! Let’s hope that it keeps those smiles a little bit longer……………..at first he did not know what to think when he started getting them, but now, he looks forward to the mail! hugs to you my friend


      • If even one in five people that sends a card happens to forward the request on blogs, Twitter, FaceBook or similar, you can literally have a stream of cards carrying you through several months.

        Let’s hope more will do the same. You two deserve something like that. 🙂
