Thank you so very much to each one of you!

And yes I participated, too. ;)

July 23rd: The Upper Left image displays the contents, and a partial view of the front of the envelope.
The green and blue paper contain the printed NOTES, the shorter and medium ones are on shared pages. There was a really long one that had it's own page. These pages are decorated with stickers. Also included, [before I thought of the idea of coloured pages] is a white page of my own NOTE, and a page of some of my own flower images...
Additionally, I included:
a tiny piece of snowflake obsidian to represent balance, and light coming from dark,
and a natural worry stone, for calm and peace, and three bags of tea for health!
I added a small hand-written note, to say that you ALL would have liked to have sent your own cards, and perhaps trinkets of your own, if you could have with an address, so all of these things were from us ALL.

July 23rd: The Bottom Left image displays the back of the envelope after it's been packaged, closed, sealed and decorated! There's a note for the family, if they receive it first, to please take it to Jo, for us. :aww:

July 24th: The Upper Right image shows the highest sign at the main post office branch in my hometown, taken from the sign upwards into the sky...

:note: I was told it would get there either by Saturday the 27th, or Monday the 29th.

So we'll see what happens!

SPECIAL thanks to:
:iconwdwparksgal: for opening up a dialogue in semi-public / semi-private place in the back room of #DevNews
which led to the project idea by:
These individuals made journals or poles in an effort to spread the word:
:icongillianivy: :icontigles1artistry: :iconrainylake: Yes, I tried, too.

And lastly, I wanted to point out one more thing, but am not sure, if it would be RIGHT,
to NAME the person,
but one of the participants of this project, especially touched ME, at least. ;)
This person wrote an extremely lovely note, but it started out by saying how they'd never met Jo before, but they'd seen the journals, felt the outpouring of love etc., and through this, and some things, they learned a bit about Jo and her character, and felt moved to add their own very special uplifting words...
.... it just made stop and think.

Perhaps the most gracious acts of kindnesses are the ones we act on for those we don't even know.

Food for thought, maybe. :rose:

Anyway, thanks again to everyone!



[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.

Oh dear, I wish I could have taken part in this... Have you heard from Jo by now? :(

The love that is contained in this deviation is immense

:aww: Very beautiful!  And randomly, you have quite lovely handwriting, Tea!  :D  I don't really know her, but I hope she gets your package and everything is alright.
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013  Professional General Artist
I think by now she would have received the package... it's been a while by now. In fact, if the address was changed or they did move without a forwarding address, it would have come back to me by now. It hasn't, so I am sure it was received, so at this point, I just hope she can know how much we do care so much about her...
But it seems we cannot know or understand everything, because haven't heard anything, and don't know if everything is alright or not, and can't know if ever will. :hmm:

Oh my handwriting! :aww:

Thank you, yes..., i think I kind of do, and have been told it...
could be left from "teacher days" ;)

:hug:  Hmm... :hmm:  Well, I hope you hear back from her soon!  Stay positive!  :D

I do not know Jo, the reason why I didn't participate.
I understand that you are very worried for your friend. I wish that you have had some news from her.
What you are doing for her is a wonderful gesture, I am sure she will appreciate it! :hug:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013  Professional General Artist
Well, it has never been returned, which means it was received at some point, but still no news... sometimes it is hard to not know the reason why for some things. I don't want to think that the reason is that it is because she is so unwell that she can't reply... I would hope that in such a case I would sometime hear something from her family, but.. you know, I can't drive myself so crazy with wondering, and neither can her other friends... some things we just can't control, and aren't meant to have answers for.

I can just only hope that she could have received our messages of love.
:aww: :heart:

THank you my dear friend, for your so sweet comment. :huggle:

This is wonderful Tea, and I hope all is well with Jo...I didn't know her, but I know she is so well loved and admired! :huggle: :heart:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thanks, I just tied up the project on the back end... only cause I had her mailing address, and it was important to every who participated. :aww:
We hope all is well with her, too... but haven't heard a reply from her or family... yet it hasn't been returned either which would indicate that they've moved... so it's hard to tell what's going on, so we continue to wait to see what happens.  Really we just hope she can know how much she is is loved. :heart:

Thanks again. :huggle:
