Amongst my possessions, I have a small pile of letters and note cards that I have received from friends through out the years. They have written kind thoughts and compliments which I have cherished. When I get blue, sometimes I reread them to boost my spirits. It's nice to be able to have a tangible remembrance of those past friends too.
While I have sent countless cards to my cyber stamping friends, recently I have decided that I really should be sending cards to people that I know in real life. At church I work with the children in Sunday School. Sometimes it can be frustrating, but I do see such sweet acts of kindness from these kids too.
Today we had a Quarterly Activity of a Summer Fun Fair. Just a fun time, play games, eat lunch. Two of the kids were so loving and kind today that I just had to make a card to send them.
This is for a boy named John who was really kind to grab my DS, E's hand and help him through the Fun Fair. E* was a bit uncertain of the whole activity but John grabbed his hand when assigned as his partner. Said, "Let's go!" And helped E, a little bit younger, through the activities.
This card is for an older girl named Reagan who kindly accepted being partners with a younger and very squirrly boy. I'm sure she would have prefered being partnered with a friend. But showing such kindness and love to another boy was a selfless act which I'm sure will not go unrewarded.
These are simple cards that will hopefully bring a ray of sunshine into a young child's heart. I know that I love it when a friend, or even an aquaintance takes the time to compliment me. I'm certainly glad that I finally bought this soon to be retired stamp set! It'll be perfect for the little ones (and not so little ones) at church.
