Service and Sacrifice


Ladies we are almost there...
What a good feeling this is!
At first I have to say I was a little over whelmed and stressed. I was so worried I would end up making 100’s of cards. Not that I mind making them for these soldiers, but a 100 is a lot. With the war continuing for over eight years now, events overseas are not as shocking to us anymore when we see something on the news or in the newspaper. However, for our soldiers on the front lines, this is still as intense and stressful as the first day of this war. As Americans, now more than ever we need to show our support of our troops.  You ladies really pulled through. I know that I have asked you to do a little extra work by asking you to address the cards “personally” to the soldiers. I just felt that it would be extra special and meaningful to them if they received them addressed personally to them, instead of just “To U.S. Soldier…”. We put so much into our Crafting, and I just know in my heart that when these awesome soldiers, open up these special handmade cards, addressed personally to them, it will bring a smile to their face. I know it would bring a smile to mine. And if our cards make even a few minutes for these soldiers a little better while overseas then we can feel good as well.
I know a name is not a lot to go by and you really don’t know these soldiers, but wouldn’t it be great to have them write you back or leave you a message and to get a peek into what these men and women go through every day.
Thank you all for your help. It means so much to me, and will mean so much more to them!
