I love to make cards but am not very good at expressing myself. A quarter of a mile is Forgotten Soldiers. They accept homemade cards as long as they have words of encouragement in the cards for the soldiers.
I would greatly appreciate any sentences that are "uplifting and encouraging to keep morale up." (words from the website).
Please help me out! I love this organization and want to contribute.

I have sent many cards to soldiers that have not received any mail but not through an organization. My friends hubby is deployed and told her about a soldier that had not received any packages or letters from home. So I sent him a care package with a card. I have another friends that her son was in basic training and he told his mom that there were 4 or 5 soldiers that never get any mail. So I sent each of them a card. Inside the cards I just wrote things like "thank you for your service" "your country appreciates your sacrifices" "keep up the work that you are doing, thank you" things like that. Hope that helps a little.

Oh Cindy what a perfect time to be writing a solider! With 4th of July around the corner you can talk about 4th of July community activities you enjoy (or national ones) ...and how they bring to mind how thankful you are for the freedom we have. Really I am sure they will enjoy any note with a little cute, fun or uplifting story. What a wonderful project you have taken on!
Angie what special gift you are sharing with soldiers who need a special boost!

Cindy and Angela, y'all are doing a great thing for someone!
Cindy, I thought once there was a thread about sentiments and where to get them for our cards, but I cannot find that thread! So my suggestion is to try Pinterest---there are many encouraging quotes that could get your brainstorming!
