Made with Kind Hands

I just received my first handwritten card in the mail from my husband who is currently deployed to Afghanistan (for a year). What a lovely surprise.  He wrote,

Check out these cards! They are provided by an organization called “Operation Write Home” and they send big bundles of cards with envelopes. I was out at another little base and they had these sitting out for people to take. They were all organized by category and card type with dividers!

Thank you for your time, effort and generosity!!!  Your cards are very well received by loved ones back home. A letter from my husband is always great, and it is more special when it’s written on a card made with kind hands.

Thank you!

K.S, spouse of Col J.S.

After sending this email, this spouse posted this note below on Facebook with a picture of the card…AND signed her hubby up for cards!

THANK YOU!! I just received this lovely card in the mail from my husband. He’s currently deployed to Afghanistan. Your cards are so very special, and very much appreciated by the loved ones back home. I cherish this card, because it’s written by my husband, but created and donated by loving and kind hands.




  1. Awesome! This is what keeps us making cards. I’m grateful for each person who takes the time to say that they enjoy them.

  2. what a great letter and such a pretty card.

  3. What a sweet comment and how nice do her to take time to acknowledge the handmade card.

  4. I have the Cherish stamp….. thanks for the idea!

  5. I have both stamps!
    I hope the cardmaker sees this post. I would be so honored if it was one of my cards.
    Lovely to see this story! Thanks to our heroes and their heroic families. You are so appreciated.

  6. That is so nice to hear, even as things are changing for us this is a sign that we are doing the right thing. 🙂

  7. don’t know if first comment went thru–I;ve been getting envelopes from Walmart and see box size is 4 3/4 x6 1/2 is this too big to be sent. I just noticed requirements to be 4 1/2 by 5

  8. What kind words from our hero and spouse. I always get chills reading our heroes’ comments.
