In addition to having the opportunity to show a photo of a photo of Brooklyn, I wanted to show you the notecards I just made. All I did was take an 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock cut in half and stamp an image in the corner. I used pink ink and then went over the top using clear Stickles. Easy peasey and CUTE!
Now the reason I'm showing this today is that it went in the mail last week to a new and dear friend of mine. "N" and I have just met and in fact the note and photo above is the first time I've corresponded with her. We met through the Chemo Angels site.
I'm not sure how I first found this site, other than clicking from one site to the next - y'all know how that goes. But it touched my heart and really spoke to me, so I signed up. Once I was approved I was told it might take a bit before they have somebody available that needs an angel and I was assigned about a week ago.
Being an angel means that you commit to sending a card, letter or small gift a minimum of once a week to somebody that is undergoing chemotherapy. I signed up for the senior program as I lost my dear grandmother to ovarian cancer and in fact put her name down as my "in honor of".
The angels are trying to be a light in the midst of a dark situation. The organization has ideas and helpful tips, including what to write. One of their suggestions was to talk about your kids, pets and grandkids and anybody that reads my blog knows that I'm a tad partial to a certain little grandbaby, so her picture was the first I sent.
