There are so many organizations that do such great things. Honestly, I could post something every day and not be able to catch up with everyone I want to mention. Today I am posting this group, even if I have spoken about them in the past, because they are always there when I need them.
Soldiers’ Angels does so many amazing things. Throughout the year, I get resources, supportive messages and connected to programs through them that are life altering.
This past week I had to have oral surgery. I have put it off for over a year because my being down always presents problems in the house. While everyone is capable enough to handle things, there inevitably is a freak out over the sheer VOLUME that I handle regularly. An over-worked mom, imagine that? My face is more bruised than I thought it would be, the pain isn’t completely quelled by the pain medications and I just wish I could help out more without feeling wobbly every time I stand up. With an upcoming holiday, every one was even more stressed about how to modify the typical celebration because of what is happening for me right now. My saying “no big deal” wasn’t being heard.
In the midst of the uproar, I started receiving a stack of cards. It always slips my mind but when they start showing up, it is whole heartedly welcomed. One of the outreach groups for Soldiers’ Angels is sending cards. There are birthday, anniversary and Mother’s Day cards and even Father’s Day cards for my Veteran. It is the sweetest gesture that means more than I could ever possibly explain to each of these sweet people. It gives me a big hug and a chance to take a break for something that is just for me.
I urge you to check out Soldiers’ Angels. If you are not in need of one of their services, they are an amazing organization to get involved with.
For now I am off to more ice packs and liquid diet. YEAH me!
