Good Deed for the Day

I have a request of you, dear Pobble Thoughts readers. I would like you to send a postcard. That's the entirety of my request. Just send a postcard.

My friend, Lori, does this amazing thing called Operation Warrior Watch, and she's got a sailor who is down in the dumps. He's deployed, and missing the birth of his first child. He's miserable. His family is frustrated. What should be a miraculous time ... isn't.

In light of all this, OWW is requesting postcards for this young sailor congratulating him on becoming a dad. He loves to get mail (don't we all, really?) and could really use a lift right now.

I'm not allowed to post his address, but if you are willing to send a postcard, let me know in the comments or privately, and I'll get you his contact information. Now, I meant it when I said that was all I was asking of you. However...

Lori's goal ~ because you will learn this woman never, ever does anything half-assed ~ is to "inundate him with cards and letters" and "surprise him with hundreds of cards." So, if on top of being willing to send him a card yourself, you want to get your

involved, we would love to have every single one of them send a postcard. That's up to you and yours. But if you, yourself, could send one, that would be enough, and I would be appreciative, because every one counts.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee ~ and a bit of goodwill.

So and so ~ I always considered myself more of a Lucy-Linus combo, but I'll take it. Thanks. :)
