Oh what a day.

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

It was my Mom’s birthday — one of those big ones — and for the first time in 11 years, she had all her kids together.

If you asked any of her kids, you’d probably hear that we’re a relatively tight, close, mostly functional and respectful family. But 11 years?!?!

It reminded me why this Hope Is In The Cards idea is so important. Even just one or two cards or letters a year to your family members adds up. It reminds each of them that they matter.

Mom's kids on her birthday....learning how to surf!

That sense of support, of a safety net, of a network of people who care, well, that makes you feel like so much more is possible.

Send that card today. Please.
