Anyways....for those who didn't know, last Sunday was my birthday! I'm soooo stinkin' old! lol. We'll I woke up on Sunday to the greatest birthday preset--An Email From Madison's Mom!!!!! If you were one of the great people who created cards and sent gifts this is for you!!!  Hope you guys enjoy it, I know I was certainly touched by it!

To Trisha and Your Scrapbook Friends,

I didn’t forget about you. Life has been hectic. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the ingenuously adorned cards. When Madison saw the boxes roll in and the numerous cards and gifts pour out, she smiled. It may not seem like much, but when our child was in such pain that she couldn’t conjure up a mire grin in weeks, this statement takes on a whole new meaning. We were all (including Uncle Pete and Daddy) simply amazed at the amount of time, effort and creativity that was heartwarmingly placed into each and every card.

For a while, we used the cards as a distraction for Madison. At the time the chemo drug she was taking was making her anxious and thus nauseous. Each day, following the pills, we would pull out a pile of cards and read them to her to help her forget her worries. We would even take to the map to pinpoint where the cards originated.
Trisha, we are grateful that you coordinated such a thoughtful gift. We are thankful for all your scrapbook friends who gave so much of themselves to make Maddie smile. Bob and I will never forget your kind and generous efforts.

With sincere gratitude,
Maria and Bob
