♥ A special request ♥
Mid-August, my dearest mother-in law (Anne-Marie) will turn 60! Seven years ago she suddenly lost her husband due to cancer. A few years ago, she also lost her job working in a store selling (tailor made) shoes for the elderly and people with disabilities. Despite life's setbacks she has fully embraced life, and currently her unemployment ;-) She's painting and tidying the house, reading a ton of books, doing yoga, taking courses and trying new creative things. Lately, her passion is using different painting techniques on canvas. She lives in a rural area (in between farmers) and loves nature; especially the open space and animals. She loves to bake and cook (and eat), playing board games with her son (who lives with her), and her cat.
To surprise her, I would love it if she would receive cards from all over the world for her birthday. So, if you got my address, please send me an additional card (to my address) for my mom. Or, if you just stumbled upon my page, you can send me a message if you want to participate.
She loves angels, wine, and inspiring quotes about life. In August, I will surprise her with it :) Try to write very clearly, as the English language is challenging for her. It is getting better after she visited her sister in Canada a few times. (Going there was her first flight ever, on her own, and she was so nervous and so proud of herself afterwards!)
I would love it if you participate in this, but don't feel obliged!
I'm Sara (call me Saar), 31 years old, and live with my boyfriend and our hyper Welsh Cardigan Corgi named Wallie (named after Waldens Pond).
Up until recently I was a devoted scientist and local politician, but I was not happy with my life so I decided to change it all! Right now I'm gonna 'go with the flow' and see where that brings me.
I spend my time free time doing volunteer work; I help people with their taxes and writing official forms, I work in an elderly home, and I collect books and clothes and stuff for another charity. I enjoy walking in the forest, cycling, visiting friends and reading.
What I love most about Postcrossing is to read what you have written :) Tell me anything!
...how you feel about the current political situation in your country or city (if you care about politics)
...what makes you happy
...how you've handeled life's setbacks
...whatever you want to tell me, or is on your mind right now!
Feel free to just go ahead and skip the small talk if you want ^_^
I truly love to hear your story!
All cards are welcome!
Whatever you feel like sending me. Envelope or not, I love it all. See my favorites (favorite cards I received) for some inspiration. I like handmade cards (I love to make my own cards too!), drawings, oil paintings, cards with food (I am a vegetarian thought), etc.
Truly ANY card or letter is welcome!! (Although I'm not a huge fan of kitchy angel cards). Surpise me!
