Hello Everyone!

For the old timers here, yep its that time again, for our new friends, we would like to invite you to join us in our Christmas Card list.

Here is the deal, our dear friend Donna (RIP) and I worked together last year to get Christmas card list for those who wanted to participate, we created the list, shared it with those that wanted it, and I believe everyone really enjoyed all the Christmas cards they got.

I want to thank Ms. Lovekitties, she saw the old posts, and took the bull by the horns and started up the Christmas card list for this year. I am posting to offer her my support and help in this endeavor.

If you would like to share your address, and also allow your address to be shared with others, so that you can send and receive Christmas cards, please email me or PM me your address. Time is getting short, so please do so soon. I would like to have the Christmas Card list out No later that Thanksgiving before if I can. My email is in my expression page, I will post it here to but sometimes they block that out for some reason...DOROOKIE2003 at yahoo dot com

Please put Christmas Card list in the subject line, also please include your name you use on the board. thank you, I dont want to delete an email from someone I dont know and it was meant for the list. Thanks

If anyone has any questions please do not hesitate to let me know.

Love to you all, prayers for all, and better health for all!!!

In loving memory of my friend Donna

I'm so glad this is going to happen again this year. I thought about it, but just didn't know if I could do it, so I'm glad you two are taking the reins. I think Donna is in heaven smiling at the thought of all those cards being sent out to friends.

*hugs*

Beth,

I just sent you my information. You are such an angel for doing this. I am sure we will all enjoy getting cards from each other and Donna will be in our thoughts as each one arrives.

Thanks Again,

Barb

Thank you Gail and Barb, I got your information. But I have to be honest, it was Lovekitties that got this going again this year, she is the one that allowed me to help. I was really feeling down and not even thinking about Christmas, to many losses this year, but when she asked for my help, I said I would like to help, and I thought Donna would like it too, just like you said, to see everyone getting the cards, I can just see her smiling about it.

So i am glad to help, but the thanks goes to Lovekittes as well.

Its going to be so much fun getting cards from all over again this year, even without Donna here, she is still with us in our hearts!

Hugs
Beth

I need everyone's thoughts on this question:

I have the old list from last year, however on it has the names and addresses of several that have passed away, should I still include them on the list I send out?

For some I know it would be hard, but I think Donna's Family would love to hear from all of us, and to Adrian too, but those are my thoughts,

Please let me know what everyone thinks and I will go by the majority.

Thanks
Have a great day...one more day for me, till I get my results, hell I should just call, but last time I did that, they gave me the wrong results, I need a new doctor.....anyway...have a good one..

Hi,

I would think sending cards to the families would be nice too. I know the holidays are the worst for some people, but knowing that people care and remember can be a big help.

Good Luck on your results too!

Take Care, Barb

Dear Beth,

I think that if we can identify on the list our friends who have passed so that we can address them to "The family of" it would be a wonderful thing to send them cards.

It would be a reminder of just how much their loved one was thought of and remembered.

Just my two cents.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

Personally, I think it is a very good idea. Writing a personal note to the family to let them know that they are being thought of would be special. Just my two cents.

Take care - Tina

I think it's a good idea...but definately denote 'to the family of', and then let the sender decide...

You are, as I said, once again a very thoughtful, loving person...I'm so honored that I can call you 'friend'!

(Hugs to Wendy!)

Hugs, Kathi

I think it would be nice to send the families cards. Maybe for people who are newer here, you should designate which ones are like that?

I think that is a good idea, as long as they are flagged so we send to "family of."

I should be on the list from last year, but there was some confusion about names, so I'll PM you.

I am in the same position as last year, which I never expected. I'm back on chemo and having a really rough time right now, so if it doesn't improve, I might not get cards out myself. I will try. I'm still running my business, and I was so sick last chemo that I didn't get much done from Thursday through the following Saturday (9 days). I don't work on Sundays. I've been really enforcing that new rule, although it is hard for me (a ridiculous work-a-holic). That left me with today and Wednesday to do 2 weeks worth of work before my next chemo on Thursday. (I am out on Tuesdays for a Living Well with Cancer group that takes me away for 5 hours between the group time and drive time, so I will only be able to work a little tomorrow.)

If my next cycles go like this, I won't have any time to get cards out.

Hey, Beth

Go ahead and remove me from the Christmas list this year. I've been on 60% disability pay and will be into the new year, so I'm not in a position this year to participate. Things are challenging as you can imagine.

I don't want folks sending me anything when I cannot reciprocate, just would not be right.

Santa Craig and his crew are grounded this year - I've laid off the reindeer and sent the elves packing, LOL:)

I'll miss putting my special packages together for everyone - you guys all enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season!

-Craig

Last year I had such an awful time with FOLFOX that I was worried I couldn't send cards and shouldn't participate. Everyone told me that they were serious about this being for everyone - that even if you can't send cards, if you would like to receive them, to get on the list.

As it turned out, I was not able to send cards out. I felt guilty about it. But I really did enjoy the cards I received. There were some really rough days when receiving a card brought a little joy when I had none.

Craig,

I am fairly new ( since April ) to this board, but I also want to send cards to everyone. Please put your name on the list. I am looking forward to sending out the cards and seeing where they are all going! I don't care if I get cards, I am enjoying the idea of having something creative to do after all these months of Chemo!

Have a Great Day!

Take Care,

Barb

Can't get out of it that easy young man, we have your address from the wonderful magazine you sent everyone - HA HA.

So you can't send out this year, so what, many of us want to send you our thoughts and appreciation for all the helpful information you have so generously shared.

Christmas will be a little light on our end this year as it will be for so many of our semi-colon family. Think about it, is there anything except $$ to help with co-pays that any of us need anyway. Enjoy the season, enjoy the lights, enjoy family and friends that is what Christmas is all about anyway.

Love and Hugs - Tina

Christmas is not the season where you give with the expectation of getting...or it shouldn't be anyway.

Unless you have a different reason for not wanting your address included, please change your mind.

You have given so much to all of us, so let us give back just a little in the way of Christmas cheer.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

Hi Craig,

Since you have internet access, and there are lots of 'free cards' sites out there, I think you can send out all the cards you like...if you have e-mail addresses.

If this option interests you, just ask for e-mail addresses.

Where there is a will...there is a way.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

Hi Beth, I'm sending you my name too. I want to let everyone know my appreciation. And since I am new, I hope to know if I am sending to the wonderful people on here or the family of the wonderful people :)

Smiles, Gail

Please include Craig;s information for me too. In the spirit of the holiday of giving, I want to make sure that Craig knows how much he is appreciated for how much he gives to this family of ours. Sorry the oxy is in my fingertips bad this morning ... but, I want to say that for Craig's benefit

You're sweet - how could this southern man deny you?

Kathryn
I agree - I've just become a giver over the last few years and so I get bummed when I can't put my Santa Craig project together and send out. Brightens my spirit!

Barb
Thank you for your support and my name is back on the list:)

Tina
I never get too far away when you come a trackin' me down - you must be part blood hound:)
I appreciate your kind words and support. You're too kind with what you say to me:)

Marie
No reason - everyone has my address anyway, LOL:) The timing of my illness just worked against my means to participate this year. I had so wanted to put my Santa Craig project together and start wingin' those out this year. And I just did not want people to send me cards and not get one from me and wonder "what's wrong with this guy?" Thank you for your continued support.

Lori
I was very touched and moved by your response. I had no idea that you even knew who I was. I've been following your story as well and am keeping up with you. For you to be hurting from the Oxy and still wanting to relay a message to me, speaks volumes about you! I'm honored and humbled. Thank you!

Ok, so I talked to Beth and told her it was OK to send me out - I'm still upset that Santa Craig won't be sliding down your chimney with my special surprise present. D*mn the cancer for that. We'll definitely do this another time, health and $$$ willing. Everyone I sent this to last year, really enjoyed and made it a part of their holidays, which was so rewarding to me.

By now, the reindeer and the elves are headed to Florida - they're going to Disneyworld! I don't know how with what I pay them, LOL:)

Thank you guys - love you all very much!

-Santa Craig

Gosh I had the best of times, and as soon as I get the pictures from my daughter i will be posting of the most handsome young man in the world, Mr. little John Hunter who is now 1 years old.

Not sure about my email address getting kicked back, I have received so many from everyone, here it is again...dorookie2003 at yahoo dot com, I believe I put it on my expression page too.

As for Craig, NO WORRIES, we are all getting his address, Craig did you really think we were going to let you slip by on this one??? (PS I did get his permission, so he is on the list)

I plan on getting the list out by Sunday or Monday the latest, as I know alot of people like to get their cards done and out a bit early.

Please if I have not responded to your emails or PM's here, its just because I have been crazy busy, but I will respond to each and everyone...

Okay gots to run now too..

Love to all
