What do you send to a 4 year old boy with kidney cancer, particularly one you do not know? Frankly, it doesn't really matter as long as it is age appropriate and gets put in the mail, rather then tossed in a box.... . I went with a cute image and a simple statement that I thought this little boy would understand.
Susan Raihala wrote about Jonah several times on her blog. She is collecting and delivering cards for him. That is very sweet and kind of her to do.
Stamps: WPlus9 Bitty Valentines and gingham background by Impression Obsession
Ink: Versamagic Aegean Blue and Red Rocket, and Ranger Archival Black
Other: Ranger Glossy Accents, WPlus9 dies that coordinate with the set, dimensional, $$ to pay for all this stuff
And now some big and sincere thanks. First to Susan, again, for mentioning my last post on her blog. Very kind.
And thank so very much to each of you who took the time to read and to comment on that post. I even received a few emails from readers with more to share. I guess rejection, failure, or feeling like a failure, is a universal experience. Your comments made me feel so much better about something that happened recently to me that had been bothering me.
And, finally, I am so glad and grateful that some former readers found me again, and I am very happy to welcome new readers. I do not post as often as I would like to because my job takes up most of my day, and sometimes my evenings as well. Hopefully that will change!
