Another Amazing Day

Good Evening Friends!! The above card captures how we feel tonight, a world of happiness. I am more bubbly than a shaken up Coca-Cola bottle. And the best news is Mason keeps on smiling. He no longer rests during the day. Here's to everyone that has sent a card; those cards are working magic. We are so deeply touched by all, this project has gone beyond our wildest dreams. It is fun to imagine all the different places around the world. And places we have yet to travel in the USA; like a card describing living on a mountain in Montana with lots of trees, overlooking a lake. Surrounded by beauty. We are surrounded by beauty too. The beauty shared by you. We have traveled around the world these last few days all because of YOU!!
96 more pieces of mail bringing sunshine to Mason's evening. He even received two Express deliveries from UAE (United Arab Emirates) The handmade card with a message From, Family in the Desert. Another Express delivery from Jamaica. Cards arrived from Malaysia, Romania, Afghanistan, Belgium, South Africa, along with Australia, and United Kingdom.

Here is a postcard from NYC; our first watercolor and hand sketch of the city.

Here are some beautiful hand made cards from Scrap booking. We received our friend Amy's from Overland Park, routed through "Valentine, Nebraska"

Those KSU Wildcats keep sending their support, Thanks Coach Frank Martin!
Also, a card from Missouri State Highway Patrol Officier and Harrisonville MO Police Dept Officier.

Here is a cute koala and kangaroo from Australia.
A Colorado couple sent a souvenir key chain from their Japan trip .

Shedeck Elementary from Yukon, OK sent the most signatures, they sent 2 huge cards, also the biggest card received!

A box of Valentines arrived today from Ally's Preschool, Ally was proud to help find her special card. Thank you!! Cards also arrived from Boone's Elementary in MO, Bentwood Elementary in Olathe, First Christian Church in Cheyenne, WY, Lee Elementary in Caddo Mills, TX, CYSS in Fort Greely, AK ( smiles for cards with the most glitter ) and we will read each letter from 4th grade students at Albert Bridge School in Vermont.

Mason biggest honor was the flag ceremony today in Afghanistan, the smile on his face while viewing the pictures is indescribable. We are all so honored and so proud beyond words.
God Bless America. Goodnight everyone, I hope tonight and everyday you find a reason to smile. There are so many reasons to be thankful. This picture just takes my breath away.
