‘Tis the SEASON OF LOVE and LIGHTS!
I awoke before dawn this morning as I often do and as I rose from my warm bed after gently kissing my sleeping husband next to me, I padded down the hall, kitten tumbling along by my side, to visit both my children’s sleeping forms to plant a kiss on their foreheads ~ so very grateful, especially today, to have them home, safe, healthy and hopefully dreaming of sugar plums in their heads. Don’t you feel it’s the little things that count so much this Sunday morning?
Before bed last night, I came upon a beautiful post http://robincoyle.wordpress.com/2012/12/14/want-to-send-a-card-to-sandy-hook-elementary-school/ which I simply have to share…as it gave such a simple, yet wonderful idea that I am reblogging it. Yesterday I asked you to Send Out Love, breathing in and out Love to All…https://misifusa.wordpress.com/2012/12/15/in-loving-tribute/ and now today, I will ask you again for a few moments of your time.
When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I received so many loving cards in the mail from my school community and my students (I taught 8th grade at the time). Their heartfelt notes and caring words helped me as I began the difficult process of healing by soothing my mind, heart and soul with the prayers and healing thoughts that I received. Now 10 years later, I still remember the powerful healing effect their cards had on me ~ and I am ever grateful for the powerful loving light which surrounds me even today. This is probably why, when I was introduced to SendOutCards, I instinctively understood the power of a heartfelt message in a card.
I feel like I’ve been given the biggest Christmas gift and I want to share it with you…please take a moment, click on my link below and follow the easy instructions to make a free card to send to the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School. If you send out love to them, I will pay for the card and postage. You only need 10 minutes and a computer. You can be anywhere in the world ~ it matters not ~ so please don’t feel that you need to be in the US to participate ~ and you can do it at any time! Up at 3am because you can’t sleep?

This is lovely. I’m doing my card right now.
I see familiar faces here. Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you too! So happy you’re sending some love! Shine On!
Thank you for the beautiful invitation…I just sent a card. I, too, remember the incredible love I felt when I was healing from my breast cancer, and the cards that came in waves. I have a special box holding them all with a big pink ribbon – just having them in the room fills it with love.
That’s exactly how I felt ~ it was like a talisman of prayer and healing that I could see, feel and reread when I needed extra strength! It helped me to feel loved when I was alone ~ especially those middle of the night alone times…xo
