it's the small things...

just enjoying a little bit of sunshine and being thankful for the air that i breathe.

Last night during earth hour, my daughter and i made this special little postcard by candlelight for my friend BJ who is living with terminal cancer. The card's design was inspired by our lovely ELK, author of red or gray, who recently sent me an envelope filled with love in the mail. (exhale). The thoughtful idea to mail BJ a postcard every week, just to lift her spirits, came from another very dear friend, Sherry, author of everyday possibilities. it's the small things in life, you know? so each week, we send an expression of love in the mail to BJ, and it has made all the difference, to both of us.

i am so thankful for all of you. you really mean the world to me.

sending lots of positive vibes and love your way.

one love.

Elk is so wonderful and inspiring, isn't she? That lady is full of love. And so are you, my friend. So are you. I love that you are teaching your daughter your own special brand of love. It's a treasure for all of us who know you.

I completely forgot about Earth Hour! Can I do it tonight at midnight...for six hours instead? =)

What a lovely thing to do with your daughter for your friend. A great way to make memories with your daughter and something your friend will cherish and enjoy, too.

What a great way to touch your friend and let her know that you are thinking and care about her. You are bonding with your daughter in such a warm and loving way too. A compassionate heart is forever.
