I am linking to Mosaic Monday at Little Red House. Please go visit Mary for links to mosaics.

If you have been following 12 year-old Andrew's medical problems on his mother's blog, Bella Mella, I thought you might want to send him a card. Andrew has had two surgeries for a brain tumor within the last month.

You have probably read on Debbie's blog (Amy's mother) (There's An Angel on my Front Porch) or Amy's Aunt Sherry's blog (Country Wings In Phoenix) about how all of you wonderful bloggers have responded to the request for cards for Amy.

Since y'all have been so wonderful about responding to the card request for Amy, I wanted to ask you to please consider mailing one to Andrew also. Melanie (Andrew's mother) does not have a P.O. Box, so to keep from publishing their home address, I will be forwarding packages of cards to him and to Melanie if you want to send one to her. Please mail cards to:

c/o Laurie
P.O. Box 443
Blytheville, AR 72316.

I will not be opening the cards. I'll simply place the addressed cards into a large envelope and mail them. I will keep mailing them as long as you keep sending them. Please continue sending cards to Amy too (see my sidebar for information about the address for Amy). Thank you so much for being such kind and generous people. laurie

P.S.: I really AM on a little blog break, but I obviously can't stay quiet for long (Did you notice that my break lasted about one day?) I just wanted to post this, and then... I AM on blog break for a little while.

(Rebus translation: I'm still on break. Just can't keep my mouth or keyboard quiet for long.)

Are you sure you want a blog break??? You are testing me with these mosaic hints....
Have a nice blog break!

Marsha said...

You are a very caring lady to do this for Amy & Andrew.

A one day blogging break makes me smile :)

Great Mosiacs! :)

That is such a sweet thing for you to do for Andrew and Melanie! I'll get one ready to send to them both!

Enjoy your bloggy break! :) ~hugs, Rhonda

Ginger said...

Oh Laurie you are so sweet to do that. I think it's a great idea. I read his story a couple of days ago and felt so bad for him. I sent Amy a couple of cards and will get one in the mail for Andrew too.
Had to laugh about what you said about your blog break. You are too funny!!!!

Foley said...

Still trying to figure out some of the mosaics..they ar so cute.
Will definitely get a card off to Andrew - you are such a sweetie!

Hhi Laurie,

Enjoy your break and have a lovely rest. Thank you for the information about Amy and Andrew. God Bless you for posting about them. They are in my prayers.

My dad used to tell me that he thought I was accidentally vaccinated with a phonograph needle (now doesn't that sound older than dirt :) You will have to be bound and gagged--and even then you will "lurk". You came out of exile for a good reason--card is on the way :)

Ginny said...

Laurie that is so sweet. I wanted to send him a card too, but I did not want to push it. You are so kind to do this for Melanie and Andrew. I know Amy loved her cards and I am sure Andrew will also. Hurry back to your blog!

Sue said...

Hi Laurie, I see you have been on a little blog break too. It is good to be back to blogging again for me. I adore you header with all the flowers. Maybe this morning if we didn't get a frost last night I'll go pick some of my hydrenga's and dry them for the Christmas mantel.

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Well, that little blog break was LONG enough! You know you're going to be missed.... :-(

As you know, I have a nine year old grandson so the tumors of this little guy just breaks my heart. I'm going out today, so I will pick up a card for him....You're so thoughtful and caring to send out the SOS for him.

I had totally forgotten about the Please Stand By screen. That's sure a blast from the past. Kids these days have NEVER seen that one, that's for sure. Didn't they used to have one about signing off at night too?

Big hugs sweet Laurie!

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

Cards going out today. Will post about your excellent idea and list on our blog. C

The Pleasues of Homemaking said...

P.S. LOVE your header!1

Chandy said...

Love your header, Laurie and what a wonderful thing for you to do! I will try to send a card or a letter. Enjoyed your harvest home!

Melissa Miller said...

Laurie you're so cute with your bloggy break. HeHe!

How kind of you to forward the cards. I'll be sure and mail one as soon as possible to you. My prayers are with them.

Many Blessings and Happy Fall!

Roeshel said...

Hey Laurie! While you are on your "blog break" come for a visit and follow me down the streets of New York City. (You are so cute) xo Lynn

I'll be more than happy to start sending cards. I will pass the addresses and information on. Please let us know how it's going.

Sweet wishes,

Hi Laurie -- I know that you're on a break -- but if you get a chance, stop by -- I'm having a give-a-way -- perhaps you'll see something that interests you. Miss you!
