Friends, I know some of you heard about my mother and the hospital stay and all. I wanted to ask a favor of you all.  I would love if some of you could send her a postcard or notecard, or just something small to encourage her. She is somewhat down since she found she has diabetes and can't eat the same foods and can't get out as much as she used to. She hasn't had too many people call and no one has sent a note or anything. I think she would enjoy a couple people sending her a small note. If you would be willing to do this, please PM me and I will give you the address. And she loves teddy bears and bear figurines, etc:) Thanks all!

I am raising my great-nephew, I have had him since he was 2 weeks old. He turned 5 a couple of weeks ago and I gave him a birthday party. I invited all of his family, aunts grandmother etc. NO ONE CAME... The only person to show up was my husbands parents.... It devistated the poor little guy...And people wonder why a Great- Aunt is raising him.....I was the only one who truly wanted him....

Send me your moms addy and I will send her a card....olieann

If I haven't PM'd anyone back with the address, please let me know. I have been very busy this past week. I think I wrote everyone, but not positive.

Thanks everyone who has responded!

Charity, I finished cross stitching the teddy bear for your mother yesterday. I'm just pressing the fabric flat now, washing it down, and then framing it. I'll mail it out at the start of next week. I'll let you know when it's in the mail.

I hope your mother likes it! I had a lot of fun stitching it! :)

Thanks Erin! She has received three cards and was so surprised:)


Thank you to Sassy, whoever you are:) She received a postcard and it was signed Sassy. But in going back through my emails I can't find anyone by that name. Thank you!
