Christmas Cards For Little Addie

Sometimes in life we are touched by something we hear or read and that is what happened to me this past week.  Being chronically ill I do not have the opportunity to do as much as I would like to help others.  So when I can help in some small way I usually jump at the chance.  

I read about a little girl this past week who is dying.  Her doctors do not think she will see another Christmas after this year.  When she was asked what she wanted for Christmas, she told her mom that she wanted cards.  Yes, that's right, Christmas cards.  

As soon as I saw the request I knew I had to send her one from our family and it had to be very special.  Fortunately, here in Korea they have the BEST paper products and I found the most wonderful card.  It is a pop up card that rocks back and forth and everything on it moves and I knew that was the card. 

I wrote a short letter and sent my card to this little girl.  I hope that in some very small way it will make her season just a little brighter.  Her name is Addie and you can send her a Christmas card as well.  

Here is a link to her story...

I was looking at some of my past Christmas posts and saw that you had left me a comment on one of them. I remembered that you were moving away. I remembered that I love your blog and I am now following you and your blog on GFC! This was a small act of kindness that you did for did this little girl! Take care and I hope your are enjoying the holiday season.
