I've Heard from More Soldiers!

Today I received a response letter from one of the Soldiers in Iraq. I'm on the Letter Writing Team at Soldier's Angels, and they send me names of servicemen a couple of times each week. We are told never to expect a return letter, however sometimes you do. Then, just a few minutes ago I received an email from a Sargeant who just received my letter and wanted to thank me. I can't tell you how pleased I am that my words reached across the world to at least one of our Soldiers. Actually, one of them is an airman in the Air Force; the other is an Army Soldier from the front lines. This week will mark my 50th letter sent since I started this in January. A few minutes of time, one postage stamp, and my heart is filling up with love and pride. As an update, it's June 4th and I've received 2 emails, and three more letters! Very nice letters. My heart is filling up.

That is really great! I love your abstract challenges - what a great idea and not too big to be intimidating :)

Wow Susan, you are so busy brightening the lives of others! I got your last quilt off the frame and binding on, but not sewed down yet. Glad to help you in your angel work! My hubby and I were involved with Anysoldier and sent dozens of care packages and letters, I treasure the responses I got and have made several long term friends that I keep in touch with. Would love to see the aprons when you get that going, I might be able to make some over the summer.
