When Everything Falls Into Place
It's been many months since I have posted here. The biggest thing that has changed in my life is that I have become a Soldier's Angel. I have been looking for the right volunteer work for me since moving to this area 10 years ago. Soldier's Angels is the perfect fit for me!
I have 3 official adopted soldiers, 1 unofficial, and I write letters and cards to many. I have become "pen pals" with many of them as well. I also send one time care packages to many and of course I send a couple of them a month to my adopted.
To give you an idea of the work I have have done - in the past 49 days I have sent 37 care packages, 457 letters, and100 plus cards. I have heard form so many of out deployed heros and enjoy getting to know them through letters. Ecven email someitmes for those in better living condition areas.
It's intersting when you find the missing link in your life, how all the rest of it comes together. Healthier lifestyle changes not a struggle anymore. This is what has been msising in my life, and I am so glad that I learned about this organization. It has rounded out my life.
If you are interseted in being an angel to our deployed, wounded and veterans, check out this amazing organization at www.soldiersangels.org There is such a need out there. At lfirst I wonder if they really care about the lettersand packages I send, and then the letters and emails started coming in --"thank you for taking the time to write someone you do not know..." or "I felt like a kid on Christmas when I received your package...," "thank you for keeping me company...." "Thank you for writing me, I really enjoyed reading your letter......"
Family and friends - if you would like to help me with my work, please send me an email or leave a meessage here, and I will tell you how you can do that.
WE ARE THE LAND OF THE FREE, ONLY BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.
Love to you all, and I will try and kleep my blog up better!
