forget me not...

changing the world
one random act of kindness
at a time...

* * *

Two years ago, my beloved friend BJ was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. (exhale). Quite a sobering experience for sure but JAH has walked in stride with me, even carried me along the way, in my attempts to shower her with as much love as is humanly possible.  

At the outset, a friend suggested that I write BJ each week.  It would be good for both of you, she said.  I didn't know what to say at first...I mean, what could I say?  I cried.  I prayed.  I meditated.  And deep in the stillness, I found my words...

In sharing this experience, Selah's Angels soon emerged - a group of wonderful bloggers and friends who volunteered to send anonymous greeting cards to BJ at their leisure.  Their words of love and random acts of kindness lifted BJ's spirits to unimaginable heights, and continue to make a world of difference in her life.  thank you oh so much.  BJ was so touched by your compassion, she requested that I connect her with someone in need to periodically shower with love.  As you may (or may not) remember, I taught her how to quilt during our most recent visit together.  Imagine my surprise when BJ called me all excited to tell me that she made a quilt and sent it to this beautiful soul she has never met, just because.  

For two years now, Selah's Angels have been sending greeting cards to those in need - primarily the sick and elderly, especially those touched by cancer.   The recipient list has since grown by request (which we have happily embraced).  

This year, Random Acts of Kindness week will be celebrated globally from February 14 - 20, so I thought it would be a good time to invite you to join Selah's Angels in sending one of the recipients on  our list a warm greeting card in the mail (anonymously of course).  You need only send one greeting card (handmade or store bought) and there is no future commitment required in this shower of love. If you are interested, please leave a comment here or email me at necessaryroom@gmail.com.

*All greeting cards should be mailed by February 14, 2011*
