Send A Card

It's easy to send someone a card, but in this day of technology, it is becoming rarer for cards to be sent. It is so much easier to email, send a message on Facebook, or text.

Card played an important role in the days following Avery's move to Heaven. During the long nights when we could not sleep, we read cards the people sent. We received so many cards that they lasted us well over a month, reading a few each night.

Now I am trying to "pay it forward" but sending notes of encouragement when I can to people who are going through a rough time. I want to help others like I have been helped.

You've Got Mail!

I am challenging you, my readers, to send a card to someone who is struggling. It does not matter what the struggle or hurt is, send them a note. It does not have to be on a Pinterest-worthy homemade card. Just send a card no matter how plain. It will make someone's day. And maybe, when you need it most, a card will show up in your mailbox.

Or, maybe an adorable puppy. Aw. He just melts my heart!


  1. Thank you SO much for this reminder.....I used to do it all the time, and now I've gotten away from that. (and I love that picture too! so cute!)

    Love you! Have a good weekend, Audra, John and Henry!!

    1. Sending cards is so important. This was a reminder to myself as well. Love you too!

  2. Excellent thoughts. Thank you!

  3. That's something I love doing. I feel strongly about doing it. Sometimes there's just nothing half as exciting or encouraging as getting a kind, heartfelt letter or card in the mail. May God give you inspiration and joy in seeking to bless others.


    1. Rebecca, I have been the recipient of your sweet cards for a long time. Each one has encouraged me. Thank you for being a good example.

  4. I just wanted to let you know that this has really encouraged me to reach out and write letters more these past few months....and I've thought of you every time!

    Love you so much.
