Stamp And Send Love

On Facebook,  I saw a gentle reminder of how one of the smallest Christmas traditions could be a gift and help not only brighten someones day but spark change.

Horton Christmas Card 2008

From the mom of a close friend of mine asking for something so simple.

It read:

“My daughter’s picture of the boys has me thinking of our annual “Breakfast with Santa” at North Ridge & how much Donnie enjoyed them. There is little joy now, so we do everything we can to spark a moment of clarity or a memory. Cards sometimes help! His address: Donnie Stancil, Room 320A, Crabtree Valley Rehab Center, 3830 Blue Ridge Rd, Raleigh 27612.

Her husband, Donnie, has Parkinson’s and additional health challenges. This is the first Christmas they won’t celebrate together in “their” home.

Not sure if it was the brutal honest comment of – there’s little joy now – or the HOPE that something we could do could help change a day, a minute or a connection but I applaud her plea and will happily oblige.

Hope that all will take a moment during this busy season to send love via a stamped card, especially to families that need a little extra tenderness!

Until there is a cure we will be the change.
