Mission Accomplished

“The greatest gift
is a portion of thyself.”
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

And you rose to the occasion!
This is just a small sampling of the multitude of over 300 holiday cards
you took the time to send to my nephew Jon while he is stationed
in Baghdad this year.

In the beginning, he had no idea what was going on.
It was so funny to hear his comments.
At first he was really puzzled.
"Mom", he'd say, "I really got a lot of Christmas cards in the mail today."

Then, as the days went on, he'd receive more, and more, and more cards.

One day, as he went to pick up his mail, Jon asked the
mail clerk, "Do I have any mail?".

The clerk said,
"DO YOU HAVE ANY MAIL?!?! What do you have? A Fan Club!?!"

So Jon called his family and said, "What is going on?
Every day I keep getting more and more cards."

The family finally 'fessed up' and told him what was going on.
They sent him to read the posts on Tif and my blogs.

So, I just have to say a really big 'Thank You!'
to each of you  for your kind works and your thoughtfulness.

(And if you'd like to continue to drop a line to Jon,
even after the holidays, you can send letters to:)

Thank you for sharing a part of yourselves.

Blessings!

Hi Cheryl, I just wanted to drop a note to tell you how blessed I feel that I have known you. You are truly a precious person and I will miss doing business with you. Who knows? Maybe we will cross paths another time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for us.

I wish you all the best!
