We have 412 cards completed including the cards from February party. While I was gone away in February, Karen led the group and I am so thankful for her. Thanks for welcoming me back home! I missed you, Ladies!
In addition to our cards, we also received a beautiful collection of cards donated by Janice Rock via Carla. Thanks to Janice for her generosity.
It was such a wonderful day as always. I took photos to share by grouping of the theme: Happy Mother's Day, Love, Thinking of you & Miss you, Happy Birthday, Thank you and General.
Thanks to Joanie, Tricia, Seongsook and Carla for bringing tasty snacks. Thanks for shipping cost donation, too. Janice brought a paper trimmer for donation from her friend so I landed it to Tricia with an assignment for paper cutting. Oh, how much I feel blessed by your support, love, friendship and hugs.
When I read a Hero Message at Hero Blog as I included below, I was so touched. As we make cards, we are so blessed and we bless our Troops by sending our handmade cards fort them to write back home wherever they are being away from their loved ones. I hope you enjoy it.

My Name is Sergeant Major L.S. and I am writing this e-mail to express my sincere thanks to all those responsible for Operation Write Home.
I had only been in Afghanistan for a few days when I realized if I did not send a card or something to my wife and my daughter for Valentines day it would be late.
I went to the little PX we have here to purchase a card or something and nothing - that's when one of my Soldiers produced a box full of cards some of which looked homemade.
I selected my cards sent them off for free and though I missed the suspense by a couple days my wife and daughter loved them.
I know we have e-mail, twitter and facebook but there is something special about a card or letter even if it's just a quick note inside.
My wife has saved every letter and card I have ever sent while on deployment.
So thanks again - what all of you are doing makes a big difference.
Sergeant Major L.S.
