Today is my sweet friend, Linda Scott’s birthday.  She would have been 77 years old.  She went home to heaven a few months ago where she kicked osteoporosis to the curb and is now standing straight and I imagine, sharing stories with Billy Graham and Barbara Bush.

Linda loved to send cards.  She always added her special art work and Bible verses to each manufactured card to make it a unique gift.  At her funeral, one of the speakers asked how many people in the room had ever received a card from Linda.  I think every single person in that room raised their hand.

What a gift she had to make everyone feel special.  In honor of her today, I would encourage you to give or send a card to someone to let them know how special they are to you.  It can be a friend, a long-lost relative, a teacher who left an impact on your life, a co-worker, your son or daughter or spouse.  It can be someone you know personally or someone you just know from afar.

Whomever you choose, I know they will be blessed by your special thought and effort to reach out to make a difference.  I believe Linda is smiling down from heaven today now realizing what an impact she made….one simple card at a time.
