I would be willing to step up and send something to the one who never heard anything. Let me know! I think its a great idea and I think it helps everyone when we can help someone else out!

I would like to continue, but I see your point. I know that the sister that I have gets something each month, the sister that has me has been faithful in her assignment. But I don't know how everyone else has fared, because they did not post on here one way or the other. I know saying this may give away who I had, but I enjoyed sending her things. Actually, I had two sisters. One, I know enjoyed her items, the other, I don't know.

I probley won't continue with this because I have heard from several people that their secret pal never did anything.

This can only be fun when those who commit to being a secret friend follow through. I can't understand why someone would sign up to do this and then not write to their ladies.

If you have a suggestion on who I can screen secret pals to make sure that they commit to and really follow through to write to their pal then I will consider it.

I sure hope we continue with the secret sister program! I am enjoying giving gifts, and also the fun surprises! emoticon

I like having a mystery/surprise, which is rare opportunity in our lives. This is; however, the first time I have participated in this type of program, and it sure is enjoyable.

I vote we continue, and keep it secret! emoticon

We are serving each other, and doing His work too by bringing joyful moments to one another.

Funny thing is when it arrived I was trying to figure out what to have for breakfast..... you solved that for us!

I have no idea who you are, and I like the mystery of that just fine.

Thank you so very much you are very kind to me, and I sure am enjoying your sweet spirit!

I received a nice gift from my secret sister this month & now that the year is coming to a close, I can say that I think I know who my secret sister is.
I could be wrong though.

I wish I had heard something from my secret pal during the past couple of months. Plus my secret pal didn't seem to excited to hear from me. Don't understand why people sign up if they don't want to participate. Just venting here!!

I too have received two very nice letters from my secret pal. My only problem with this is I am wanting to respond to all her questions and I can't since I don't know who she is!!! ROFL!

I am glad that some of you have had fun with this secret pal challenge, but I have heard from a few of you that have heard nothing from their secret pal.
So, I am not sure whether or not to continue this.

I don't understand why people would sign up to do this, and not follow through. If any of you have ideas on how to screen secret pals so that everyone has a good experience I am open to suggestions.

My wonderful Secret Sister has done it again! She sent me a gift card for Barnes & Noble, which was a very generous and purrfect gift for me, although I must say, I did not expect anything. Last month I loved the fruit bouquet, and I like to use the container for flowers, etc..

I received this delightful gift card today inside a sweet kittycat card!

To my secret sister: emoticon emoticon I will use this card to purchase one or maybe two of the books I need to get for our RS ward book club; our books are planned out for 2010.

You are super sweet!!!!!!!!! BTW, just for your info my apt has changed to 222 (my birthday, how neat is that!). One of my ward sisters needed a place to live, and so we were fortunate to get a recently available super large 2 bathroom (with 2 full baths/2 walk-in closets) apt in the same complex I was at, and our new place has 3 balconies, one of which is HUGE.

Well, I'll blog about your generousity too, yet once again, Thank You, you are a Super Sweet Secret Pal, and I feel so fortunate to have you!!! emoticon

I am sorry to have to post this, but I have received some sparkmail saying that they have not as of yet received anything from the secret friend. One even said that they sent an e-mail and no one responded.

I was hoping that if you signed up for the challenge you were giving your commitment and would follow through. OR you would have contacted me and told me so that I could have reassigned your secret pal to someone else.

This can only be fun if we all commit to following through.

I hope all of you who signed up have now received an address or an e-mail for a secret pal and are at least thinking about what you will write in your letter.

I have my letter ready to send out today.

Lets use this thread to report on our progress, when we receive a letter, and as the year progresses what we would like changed about this challenge for the next time we open it up for secret pals.
