Are You A Pretender or A Sender?

Are you too good to say thank you?

Are you too busy to sit down and write a letter or a thank you note?

Lets find out who are the talkers and who are the doers.

Lets find out who is a pretender and who is a sender!!!

A sender of a letter that is.  You might be asking yourself "Sender of a Letter"?

Well I know that some of my readers are spouses of military members and family of military members. I know that growing up in a military family myself that what I am about to challenge you with is something that is so simple and something that is so quick and easy.  I am about to put it in your hands and we are going to find out if you are a Pretender or a Sender?

Being that I pay Bert (pennies) for blog post ideas, I feel that knowing I have some readers and Internet friends, I can help make an impact to Bert and The Bert Shows newest campaign.

The Bert Shows Big Thank You Read More Here  is an idea that the radio show The Bert Show came up with to send and give thanks to the men and women of our Military on Thanksgiving.  We have so many men and women service members that are overseas and they will be spending that special day away from home and without family.  So what the The Big Thank You is trying to do is to get hundreds of thousands of letters from us out to all the military personal that is overseas.  They are wanting every person to have a letter on that day.  These letters can make a difference. A letter from you, me, our kids can make a soldier that hasn't read a piece of mail in months light up like the moon on a clear night.

Imagine what your letter could do. Imagine what a letter from your child could do to that soldier.  For me, maybe a letter talking about sports could make that soldier feel at home for even just a minute. Maybe a letter with a drawing from your kids could make that soldier beam with delight about his or hers own kids.  Some soldiers don't have anyone. You could be that soldiers someone.

So me being the shit talker that I am....I am bringing it to you. My readers, my followers, my friends, my family...Can you be unselfish enough to find a couple minutes to write a letter. Can you get your kids to write a letter and maybe draw a picture for a soldier that is protecting our Country. ????

So don't read this and say to yourself what a great idea it is...Read this and DO IT.

Remember time to decide if you are a PRETENDER or a SENDER !!!!

Which are you?
