Through this Operation Recruiter Appreciation I met a woman whose grandson is fighting cancer. He loves postcards, so I sent him one from D.C. She wrote me back saying he loved it and put it in his scrapbook. Unfortunately, of the family/ friends she asked, only one other person wrote him one. So I'm now respectfully requesting that you consider sending him one and mention Gathering of Eagles.
Zach is 12, and he just had an operation to get a tumor from behind his ear. The good news is the doctor thought it went very well. The bad news is he has another surgery on May 18th.
Thanks much for all you do!
PRAYERS GOING UP for ZACH.
CARD on the way!! :o)
Prayers up for him!
Please send me the address....my kids would love to send a postcard...
Prayer warriors, would you be interested in sending postcards to this young man?
Please post your replies to MountainFlower
Please know that I am praying. May God provide healing and comfort as needed.
If you want on/off my prayer ping list, please let me know. All requests happily honored.
Why don’t you PM with your address and ask that everyone send a pre-posted card. Or a stamp on the side. You could put all the cards in one big envelope. With all the stamps, it would be looked at in the Post office but he would get them all in one big envelope.
Either way, get me the addy and he will get three from us and I’ll get with other homeschooling moms. He’ll be bombarded!
I join in prayer for this young man!
thanks! Prayer BTT!
I think it would be more fun for Zach to receive them as they come in...giving him excitement and something to look forward to each day! MHO
Prayers going up, as well!
I kept the address handy...do you want additional things sent?
I said I was the tea-drinking, cookie eating Grandma type.
Cookie baking tonight...should I get a small package ready?
Maybe some books or games would be better?
that is a precious idea!!
We are up against some serious couch potato patriotism over here ! Lots of ‘highsign’ support , but nobody willing to man the battle lines . Volunteers needed !
If you’ll PM Zach’s address, I can send both a Philly postcard and a NJ one.
Glad you like my ideas.
I bought one of those “shake it” flashlights today. Now I have to find a “Captain Underpants “ or some joke book to go with it...maybe a small blanket to hide under too.
How my kids liked to hide and read a book at night! Getting my Grandson to read is a constant battle. Last year it was 15 minutes of reading to earn a 45 minute swim session...it worked! What can I do this year? A chapter of the next Harry Potter book?
Glad to see you contributing to this kid’s fun.
If you send a letter would you send a few stamps? I forgot to include them and sent 4-5 note cards for him to write to friends...Also forgot the postal increase! DUMB (note cards were cute though, turtles, bugs etc.)
Hope to see you when I get back to DC and WRAMC some Friday night.
Now, I see you were going to do postcards....
ALL: Someone else volunteer to send stamps?????
you have me laughing at the thought of "captain underpants"!! the joke book, the flashlight, the blanket... cool! don't forget a NOTE explaining it!! the poor kid will think something else if you don't!! LOL
how many stamps were you looking for?? i might be able to help on that part.
