A Card for Lois


I came across this on Wilna Furstenberg's blog and it captured my attention and my heart.

Here's the story: Wilna has a friend, Lois, who is 40 years old and has cancer. She is in pain and needs positive, uplifting people to make her smile. She has an amazing husband and four beautiful kids. The doctors are not giving her long to live.

Wilna is asking us all to take 10 minutes of our time and create a card for Lois. A card that speaks of life and laughter, of fun and flowers. A word of encouragement, maybe your favorite scripture. Take a picture of it and upload it HERE for all to see. Then you mail it to her. Wilna will make a list of all the cards she gets and she will let Lois draw names out of a hat to win an awesome RAK. The deadline for all the cards to reach her in Canada is March 20th. So if you want to play, make her a card and post it. That's how simple it is!

Please email Wilna at wilna71@gmail.com if you want to participate and she will email you her address. Imagine her smile and tears and amazement when she sees how many people care. This will be a great surprise!

Here's the card I made for Lois!
