When the package of Hallmark Greeting Cards arrived for my Get Carded Challenge, I knew I would have to wait until this month to send them out. I have so many special people with birthdays this month that there was no other choice.
I was asked to send a card to one person each day for a week, and then write about who I sent them to. This is what the selection of cards looked like:
The first card I sent was to my mother and father-in-law. The last time Fabgrandpa and I went to visit them, they gave us the good news that they were going to forgive a loan they made to us. I can not tell you how much of a relief it was for them to do that for us, and although I feel like just a card is not enough, Hallmark has such a way of saying things the way you mean them. I hope they know just how much we love them and appreciate everything they have done for us.
Next, I sent a Birthday card to my niece, Stefanie. She is turning 30 this year, and I know that can be a rough birthday for some people. I hope the funny Duck Dynasty card I sent her helps ease her into her third decade.
My son, Seth, has the next birthday in this month, on November 14. He will be 42, and is planning to retire from the Air Force next year. I am really proud of him. Hope he has a wonderful birthday.
Then, on November 25 my daughter, Becca will be 40. She is living in Canada and has already had snow this year. I hope she has a happy, snowy birthday and I hope her card gets to her before her birthday.
The last birthday card I sent was to Adam, Stefanie’s husband. His birthday is November 27. My Mother’s birthday is on the 26th, and another niece and a nephew all have birthdays this month as well. It is really hard to remember them all!
My grandson, Spencer started middle school this year, and my grandson, Owen, started first grade. Those are two special occasions to remember, so I sent them both a back to school card. Their moms tell me that they love to get mail, so these cards will be fun for them.
I hope both boys have a great school year and learn new things every day. I don’t live near any of my special people, so sending letters and cards is one way to help keep communication open with them. Hallmark has card for just about any occasion you can think of, from serious to funny. Who would you send cards to if you were challenged to Get Carded?
