Blessing Way from 3000miles away
I am exploring the idea of a blessing way via mail. I have already compiled my prayer team by sending out invitations and those that have committed will be apart of it.
My THOUGHTS are:
Sending them a candle to light when I go into labor. Sending them pre stamped cards for them to mail back with their encouragement or natural birth stories. Sending them a thank you note and prayer requests for when I go into labor. Things like pray for calm, strength, respect, wisdom for nurses and MW, confidence in my body, etc. Having them pick out and send me back a bead(s) that I can string into a bracelet for labor. A reminder for me of my prayer team.
What are you thoughts? Anything that would be good to add to their packages? Should I do votive candles (3hr burn time) or pillar candles (30hr burn time). I labor for about 22hrs (with pain meds). It will get pricey to mail pillars to 15 ladies, but I will if you think votives are too short of time.
