Could You, Would You, Please
Today is Friday, September 25, 2009. It was another beautiful day and thought I might just get into the pool to cool off. Well let me tell you, that water was no where near the temperature of the day! It must have cooled off a lot last night. Needless to say, no matter how inviting it looked, I entertained myself with a few projects.
I have a very dear friend Jenn, who's daughter Ashley, had to have jaw surgery. We are so thankful that it was a cyst and NOT a tumor! However, she is having a real tough time for her recovery. Basically she is on "lock down". Can go no where or do nothing. Not much fun for a nine year old.
She has had medical problems all of her life, however this is so different for her. As Jenn stated, Ashley is starting to think she did something wrong and is being punished. Not the case at all, it is just to fragile right now that she can eat nothing other than the usually pudding, mashed potatoes, jello you know the drill. She had been eating mac and cheese and the doctor was upset because of the "chomp" of her teeth.
So I asked Jenn about her writing letters and cards and receiving them. Jenn says Ashley will write to anyone and loves getting mail. She likes to read Magic Tree House and Goose Bump books. Loves stationary and pens.
I was so blessed with a seller from Bonanzle yesterday. I found her booth happychica0416 with 25 Magic Tree House books. So I contacted her about all of them and she is an angel! She did all of them in a lot and is going to ship them right to her. She is also going to put her name in them and wrap them with a card! You don't get any better customer service than that! Thank You Jennifer! So Ashley will have them Tuesday or Wednesday!
She also loves lady bugs. I have searched high and low for lady bug material to make her a dream pillow and drawstring bag. I even went to the thrift stores yesterday looking for used clothing maybe that might just have lady bugs. NOTHING! Not even in the toddler clothes. So I may just have to settle for butterflies, I know they are not lady bugs.
So I was thinking that maybe if you have time, you could write her a note and send to her. If you would like to send her a note, letter or card, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you her mailing address. I just don't know what else to do for her. I can only imagine what Jenn is going through on this one. It really sucks when your child is ill and there is nothing you can do about it!
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
