Thanks & More

Woman grateful for cards


I want to thank all the lovely people who responded to my plea on Swap Shop on 106.3 radio station.

After placing some books for sale I asked if anyone else had elderly people who they should check on during the pandemic. I my name and that I was turning 82 on Dec. 26. My family couldn’t get together for Thanksgiving or Christmas so cabin fever was getting to me. I’m in a wheelchair and can’t get out, I wondered if Christmas cards were being sent out anymore. I had a new post office box and gave the mailing address as P.O. Box 387, Crawfordsville, which I found later should have been P.O. Box 287. When I get cards I tape them on the door to remind me how nice people are.

Naturally, I didn’t get any letters. So, with only five cards on the door from my family I celebrated what I had gotten. I was told later by a friend who had that box and she said she gave them my house address in January. Still I heard nothing. On Valentine’s Day a young man knocked on my door and handed me a bunch of mail. I thanked him and was delighted to read 15 envelopes of blessing from three counties.

I am thanking these people with God’s blessing for taking the time out of their day to write to me.

These cards will be taped to my door all year so I can see that people are given blessings every day.
