Queen of Cards

Queen of Cards

"If you knew who walked beside you at all times, on the path that you have chosen, you could never experience fear or doubt again." ~Wayne Dyer, author and spiritual writer

Back in 2018 when I had a newborn, a 2 year old, and a husband recovering from brain surgery, I received support from so many colleagues at Timber Creek HS. I am an English teacher and work very closely with the people in my department; however, I don't always get to see friends from other departments as much as I did before we changed our schedule to a rotating one. Some of my oldest friends are colleagues whom I don't often see, but whom I know walk beside me whenever I need them. One such friend is Mary Dressel. Mary sent us diapers in 2018 which was so unbelievably necessary. When Amazon showed up on my door step with a huge box of diapers, I honestly thought a guardian angel was looking after us. I opened the box up to see Mary's name and I knew I was right.

This time around, after I made my colorectal cancer diagnosis public, Mary started sending almost weekly cards. Her cards are always cheery and truly do make me remember that there are people out there, besides my family, just randomly wishing me well. That kind of stuff can't help but make me feel less fear and feel no doubt in my safety in this world. 

Thank you, Mary.
