Interesting how often compassionate comes up. It shows in all the support folks get who come to this board.  :)

Day #3 of our 14-Day Challenge

I don't know about you, but I've enjoyed reading everybody's "fun" activities and the answers to their questions.   :)

Welcome to new member, Carol, whose first post was in our 14-Day Challenge!  :D  I hope you find this site helpful to you in your Sjogren's journey.

Cheryl - I would love for you to come along on my beach "girls trip"! 

So far, we're up to 13 members who are participating in this challenge.  Yay - the more the merrier!  You can join in anywhere along the 14 days even if you missed some days.

Our Challenge for Day #3 is:    Send a "thinking of you" card snail-mail to someone you haven't seen or talked with in a while.  There is something special about receiving an unexpected card in the mail that will brighten someone's day and also give them something tangible to look at again and again in the days to come.  Plus, it's always nice to be remembered.

Life gets busy with all the daily activities we have going on and it's not that we don't think of people, we just are busy and before you know it, a lot of time has passed since we've been in touch with them (sometimes, even years).

If you are so inclined, you could write a short note to include with the above card or at least say a few sentences in the card, don't just sign your name.  For those of you who are creative, you could even make your own card versus buying a store bought card.

All of these challenges during these 14 days are something that can be done in 10 minutes or less.  Surely you can spare 10 minutes of your time to bring happiness and a smile to someone else.   :)

Enjoy your day!

Bucky

Great idea, Bucky! I sent a card to my granddaughter in college with a $20 in it yesterday, but I think I'll send a note to a friend of mine whose young daughter died unexpectly six months ago. Now that all the fanfare has passed, I bet she could use a kind word.

I have been putting off sending a card to my stepmother.  She was only married to my dad for 18 months before he died, and we are not close.  Yet she is in her 80's and would love to hear from me.  Here goes...
