wow, what a fantastic thanksgiving break -- hope you all had a lovely long weekend with family or friends! obviously it took me a bit to get back into the swing of things as i gave myself yesterday off from blogging. but now i'm back! [anyone else incredulous it's december already?!?]
and i just wanted to give a post-thanksgiving cards for dads update to everyone who so generously donated cards to the hill family. we had more than 40 cards total and they were SO beautiful -- i could tell so much care had gone into each one.
i wrapped all the cards up in a box and my husband & i ding-dong-ditched it on the hill's doorstep the week before thanksgiving. over the weekend, rich hill himself posted a kind note on his blog about receiving the package, titled "appreciation to friends unknown." it included this section:
Just days before Thanksgiving, the Get Well Soon box was left anonymously on my front porch. Upon further inspection, I found a box full of beautiful, hand-made cards from people I do not know...
The cards are hand-made and beautiful and the messages magnificent: messages of love, faith, and encouragement.
Lyndsey and Cherry Blossom and all of those who created these beautiful cards: you are true examples of love - for a family you have never met. May the Lord's blessings always be with you.
yay! we lifted their spirits! thank you thank you to everyone who participated -- know that you made a difference.
and, true to my promise, here are the three winners of handmade cards -- email me your mailing address and i'll send you a pack of cards:
thanks again! i'll be back to regular paper-loving blogging tomorrow!
