I’ve always been a “card” person.  I like to send them. Love to get them.  So, it turns out there are several organizations that you can register with that hook you up with an “angel” – (more than likely, but not necessarily a cancer survivor) who has volunteered to stay connected with you through the mail.  Now, maybe I just hit the jackpot, but I have an angel from Peoria (Isn’t that a Bonnie Raitt song?) who is truly amazing.  I’ve received cards, magazines, perfume, socks, hot cocoa…all arriving just at the right time — usually when I’m feeling sorry for myself. (Yeah, I do that, sometimes.)  I also know that, one day, I’m gonna make a really great angel for someone else.  That day can’t come soon enough.
