Love From Home
Saturday, September 17, 2011
I realize not everyone is so lucky, buy my FRG is really fantastic! The ladies are great and their gift ideas are AWESOME. This idea I snagged from one of the Army wives who is doing the same for her hubby.
Sending mail overseas takes a while. So if my soldier is having a particularly bad day, it might be on a day that is not mail day. To remedy this situation, I picked up a few (ok, over 40) cards for him to have on hand whenever he might need one! I am in the process of writing messages in all of them. This way, whenever he's in need of a message from home, he has one waiting on hand.
I labeled the envelopes -- some for a specific date, some for whenever -- so he would know when he can open them. I sent three with him to tide him over when he left earlier this month, but plan to deliver the rest the next time I get to see him (which is coming soon)!3 Comments »
