First, Fifth, Forever - A Letter Writing Journey for 2011 - June 2011

 I can hardly believe it is June, six months into First Fifth Forever here at The Coloradolady. This past month was a busy one for me. I sent out lots of thank you notes to individuals who really made my day. The birthday cards went out as well. I don't know how many are actually doing this each month, but I keep it up in case someone is inspired to take part.

 I received the sweetest thank you letter in the mail from one of the Birthday Seniors that we sent out cards to last month. I was thrilled she took the time to write a note back and let me know how much she enjoyed her surprise.

 I also was greatly surprised with this adorable pattern for a quilted jacket sent to me by Katie Q. I was really touched that she thought of me and wanted to send me a surprise!! Thank you again Katie!!! I love it.

 This month, on my calendar for June, I don't have any seniors Birthday to if you know of one, leave a message in the comment section or email me...I'd love to have the opportunity to send a card and a dollar to a senior this month.

I'd also like to ask that you say a prayer for my friend, Pat who inspired this whole Birthday for Seniors project. She is the mother of a blogger and she has suffered a stroke and the prognosis is not good. She was found unconscious Friday and as of today, I don't think there is any change. Please remember Pat in your prayers and her family. She is the "Fine" in the One Fine Blessing here at Coloradolady.

And lastly, I'd like to leave you with this is the little things in life, not the big ones that mean the most in so many ways. Take a minute to do something small for someone you know or a total will make a big difference. Have a great week inspired!

I have a link up if you'd like to link in and share something today....thanks!


  1. I will say a preayer for your friend Pat. What a nice friend you are.
    Love the logo with the pinecone that you made for this post.


  2. Praying for your friend!
    I need to do this with you, very inspiring indeed.

  3. I love that saying...wherever did you find it??
    I'll pray for your special friend Pat.
    Thanks for sharing yourself with the rest of us!

  4. The saying is precious and will say a prayer for Pat.

  5. This is a good thing you've done and sustained.

  6. Pat and her mom will be in my prayers. Pat is lucky to have a friend like you to lean on at a time like this. On a happier note, when are we going to get another look at your "Begging Quilt," in progress?

  7. I love the "little things" quote! It is sooooo true.


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
