Mail for a serviceman - thank you from my nephew Jon

Monday, December 31, 2012

Thank you to those of you who responded to my request to send my homesick nephew, Jon, a card in December. He is in basic training for the air force and was quite homesick at the beginning. Jon got a whole bunch of mail that week and was so appreciative of the cards and notes. Apparently the highlight of the serviceman's day is when the mail bag is delivered. Thank you for helping to make Jon's first month away from home during the holidays more joyful.

Jon will be in basic training until the end of January. If you have time and would like to help to make a serviceman's day more joyful, here is Jon's address again:

AB Leary, Jonathan M
321 TRS/FLT 093 (Dorm A-6)
1320 Truemper St, Unit 364052

Homesick service man (my nephew) needs encouragement

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

I have a favor to ask. My nephew Jon is in his 3rd week of boot camp and is homesick. If anyone has time, please send him a card or note this month to let him know that he is being thought of and that we appreciate his service to our country. Just tell him you're a friend of his Aunt Nancy!

He can't have any food, magazines, books or porn (can you believe they have to say "no porn". Who would think of sending that?). Just cards and letters. His birthday is Dec 6, but that's coming up fast. He doesn't get to come home for Christmas, either.

His address is:
AB Leary, Jonathan M
321 TRS/FLT 093 (Dorm A-6)
1320 Truemper St, Unit 364052
Lack land AFB, TX 78236-6431

Thanks for taking the time:-)

    I will too! I have even asked my brother too; he's had the experience and can encourage from a different perspective. Little to ask for our servicemen!

Rewarding action - The Daily Motivator by Ralph Marston

Monday, October 08, 2012

I like to read "The Daily Motivator" by Ralph Marston. Today's post was just too good not to share, since it so pertains to our Spark journey...

"Rewarding action"

When you don’t feel like making the effort, that’s when making the effort will make the biggest difference for you. Instead of giving in to negative momentum, interrupt it.

The best way to feel like doing it, is to do it. Step beyond your negative feelings and reward yourself with some positive action.

Feeling sorry for yourself will just give you more reasons to feel sorry for yourself. Ignore the temptation for self pity and embrace the opportunities for immediate self improvement.

    *If you feel the need to make an excuse, see it as a very clear indication that something is wrong. Instead of offering excuses, take the opportunity to make improvements.*

Amen, Mr. Marston. I'm adding this site to my daily morning email - great way to start the day!

You ROCK, Nancy! TFS!
