I don't know where else to post this, so if it should be moved.....or not allowed I am sure CM moderators will move it accordingly.
A friend of mine just told mea few minutes ago, that she posted on Craigslist, asking people if they would be kind enough to send her Father a Christmas card. That breaks my heart. She said he has already gotten 3 cards from the surrounding area from some nice people whom wrote something to cheer him up.
I've known her Father and her family for over 35 years. ( We're 48 ) And it's tough to see her always worry about her father.
And her Father, just a few years younger than my own Father with many health issues and going from being a very independent man, to being partially incapacitated in a nursing home, paralyzed on one side, dependent upon others now. All within a years time.
It would mean alot to Mr. H, and my best friend, if any of you could send a Christmas card out to her father.
I realize it IS a short notice......but it is the thought that counts and a sweet gesture on your part to do...for a Grandfather!
You can say it's from "Anita's friend on Cafe Mom" ...that's fine...or your screen name here. You don't have to put a return address......personally.....I wouldn't!! For security reasons I definitely understand that.
So the screen name you use is perfect.....this way she can let me know too, and I can thank you.....or perhaps she will join Cafe Mom, when time allows to get on here to thank you herself.
Please......if you are able to......send Mr. H a card.
Here is the link to her posting on Craigs List : http://jacksonville.craigslist.org/vol/2096100399.html
