While reading some of my favorite blogs today I came across a post by my friend Tabitha over at I Choose Bliss.  It really touched my heart and propelled me into immediate action.  I hope you'll feel the same way too:

"Diana Biorkman needs your help in making her son's wish come true. She has a 5 year old son, Noah, in the last stages of a 2.5 year battle with Neuroblastoma Cancer. The family is celebrating Christmas next week and Noahs request is to get lots of Christmas cards.

Please consider sending cards to:

Noah Biorkman
1141 Fountian Viewcircle
South Lyon, MI 48178

Please let this precious child know he is DEEPLY Loved. FILL HIS MAILBOX WITH JOY"

I set out some doodads and paper scraps I've been collecting for just such a project and let my 4-year old daughter Max get creative making a card for Noah.  She really got into the spirit of making a special card for this little boy that I told her was very sick.  It's never too early to grant a Christmas wish, and you're never too young to start learning about reaching out to others.


  1. You are so beautiful and I'm so grateful you are spreading the word right alone with us!

    Big hugs to you & Max!!

  2. What a wonderful idea! I live in England, and we are having a Postal Strike at the moment, but I would have loved to have sent a card!
    Instead I send all my love and hope, and hope that they reach in time!
    Much love and many blessings!

  3. Jenn - this just shows once again how wonderful you are. During our family time tomorrow I will sit down with Goose and explain what we are doing. And I may just have to copy you and repost something similar.

  4. Of course we will make some cards tomorrow too.

  5. Thanks for passing this along. South Lyon, where Noah lives, is about an hour away from where I live, but I hadn't heard of his story until I read your post.

    We will be making some cards to send tomorrow and I will post this request on my blog, too.

  6. Thank you for sharing, I will send out some cards. I just can't imagine what the family is going through, it breaks my heart.

  7. Fantabulous idea! I'd love to help support this :) We'll have to make some fun cards to send.

  8. Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is such a wonderful act of kindness, and so simple, too.

  9. Saw this on another blog today too. I heard it started with your blog, so i wanted to come by. A beautiful idea. Great way to get the kids involved. Praying for the family. Holly at lifelaughlatte
