Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Those who know me, know that I LOVE opportunities to share love and light to the world. Any chance that I can get to bring a smile to a face, makes me extremely happy and fulfilled. SO… I happened to come across another opportunity and I wanted to share this one with you!
There is a beautiful organization called More Love Letters and these amazing human beings, spread light and love into the world by collecting love letters for individuals who are either going through a hard time, need a little encouragement or just need to be reminded that they matter and that the world cares. This Holiday season, they are doing a 12 days of Love Letter Writing Campaign. Each day, participants receive a story of a letter candidate and have the opportunity to write a letter to that individual. The letters are bundled and sent to the individual during the holidays.
This year, I am writing love letters and would love for YOU to join me! I could use YOUR help in spreading light and love to those who need it most.
You know what’s so great about this opportunity??? The cost is roughly NOTHING… all you need is a little stationary, a stamp and a little bit of time; and you’ve got everything you need to make someone’s day! Isn’t that AMAZING? I think so… So, come join the fun!
Will you join me? The campaign is running from December 4th to the 15th.
Today’s letters are being written to the beautiful IRENE. Check out her story below!
“Irene is the strongest woman I know. After her husband unexpectedly died after the birth of their fifth child, this young nurse did what was necessary–working long hours to support her children on her own, even at the expense of her personal life. I have never heard her complain once about her lot in life.
Irene now has grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She never forgot a birthday, and holidays with her were filled with homemade cookies and cheer. In her later years, she’s been happily living on her own in an independent living apartment. Recently though, she suffered a sacral fracture, sending her to the hospital. We are hopeful she can return to her apartment, however, that may realistically not happen. She’s very sharp mentally, but her always able body is feeling the wear and tear of age.
This setback has understandably dimmed Irene’s ever-bright light. This once positive, loving figure is now feeling the weight of not being able to live on her own. She does not want to spend her remaining time in a hospital bed or in a nursing home, but her optimism is waning.”
Let’s write to Irene and encourage + support her during this difficult season.”
ALL LETTERS CAN BE MAILED TO: Irene’s Bundle c/o Anna B. 451 Acequia Madre, Santa Fe, NM 87505 USA.
So… grab a pen, paper, turn the Christmas music all the way UP and join me in spreading cheer to those in need this holiday season! Let’s strive to love well.
Until next time,
