Original things for original people.

I Want to Share This.

This morning, I was lying in bed, debating on whether or not to get up, or read on the latest gossip on celebrities.  I am not a morning person.  But my phone binged, telling me that I received an email and it showed, “Operation Write Home.”  My first thought it was from Operation Write Home so I thought, I would read it, give me a few more minutes of staying in bed.  But I read it wrote.  The subject was “Operation Write Home.”   This email read like:

I wanted to send you a quick note to express my thanks to you for sharing your time and talents with the many military members who are deployed overseas. My husband sent me one of your lovely cards recently. It will be something that I will keep and treasure and it is because of the many people like you who take the time to care and share your talents. What a great organization!!

I also enjoy stamping and card making, but have not been doing it for several years because of other commitments. I think I may have the itch to create again and will be making some in the near future….

Thanks again and many blessings to you!

To be honest, I was flabbergasted in receiving this email and almost in tears.  Tears of joy of course.  I honestly never expect to receive any email from anyone in service.  Yes, I wrote my email and where the card is from.  I saved this email and planning to have it print out and maybe scrapbook it.  But I wish I knew of which card she received because I could make a copy of it and put it in the scrapbook.

In other news, I didn’t get accepted in the October sale, but that is ok.  I still have make a couple of Halloween cards for Koda’s Kountry, which it is going slow.  Maybe because today, I spent a day cleaning up my table so I can get to my cricut machine.  After Christmas, I am going to take a month off and clean out my workplace.
