When I blogged in June of 2014 about all of the things that keep me busy, I made reference to my card-making for a project called Girls Love Mail. Little did I know that the cards and letters I created, penned, and sent would come back to thank me.
TODAY, September 26th, a book titled Dear Friend is available for purchase. Taken from their website, I offer this description, “This beautiful collection of handwritten letters offers strength, encouragement, and comfort to women living with breast cancer. These heartfelt letters were gathered by Girls Love Mail as a gift for your loved ones. Presented in an elegant package and brimming with warm messages of empathy, inspiration, and humor, Dear Friend delivers words of wisdom when they’re needed the most.”
I am absolutely blown away to be included in this publication. It is truly an honor. Of the one hundred and ten THOUSAND submissions that Girls Love Mail received in support of women with breast cancer over the years in preparation for this collection, I am one of the 100 published in this book.
Founder, author, and cancer survivor, Gina L. Mulligan began Girls Love Mail after she herself received hundreds of letters of support. No lectures or advice, just heartfelt comments.
We’ve all been in need of the “right words”, whether we’re the getter or the giver. This book is filled with page after page of genuine well wishes. Buy it for yourself, buy it to share. I believe you’ll find comfort in its messages.
