a request


dear reader,
i have a request.
you see, aliana's 10th birthday
is september 25th, next wednesday.

i would very much like for her mailbox to
 ~overflow~
with birthday wishes and treats.
i would like for aliana's socks to be knocked off
by the sheer volume of birthday wishes.
i'll go out on a limb here and say that
missy would like it, as well.
{aliana & her mama, june 2012}

will you please
send aliana a birthday card?
or anything else you think might delight her?
it is a well-known fact that she
likes gum and chocolate and stickers
and other things of that nature.
also, fairies, animals, and flowers.
she's a cuddly sweetheart.
a blessing to everyone who knows her.

i know i can count on you
to brighten up this girl's very special day.

go ahead and spread the word!
maybe you could mention her birthday
to certain friends who are
especially good at this sort of thing.
just an idea.

there she is!
checking her mailbox for birthday cards!!

this picture of missy's blessing way
was taken on this very day, ten years ago


p.s.
please don't worry if you are reading this
and it's now too late to send something
to arrive on september 25th.
do you remember being ten years old?
would you have liked cards & treats
to trickle in for weeks?
i think we both know the answer.
please send her your sweet card,
no matter the date.

Sweet Catie,

I have just created a little surprise for Aliana and will tuck some other little gifts along with it and send it off to her this week... it may be arriving a few days after her birthday, but perhaps it will arrive ON the day. (Sometimes I ask my angels to help speed things along the mail route) ;) much love, Sandi
