You Matter Moment of the Week

“I have 6,000 cards printed to make certain I don’t run out. Often, when I give a card, the person will say they want to pass it on. I then give them several cards so that they too may enjoy giving cards to others. In the very cold weather, I donated over 50 coats, hoodies, jackets, vests along with 100 socks, hats & gloves to an organization I know provides lunches directly to the homeless. When I drop them off, I include 250 You Matter cards with instructions to distribute them to the homeless. WHAT A JOYFUL FEELING I experience just thinking of the people who receive the cards.

I firmly believe the cards make a difference in the lives of those who receive them, even if only in that few moments. And I can’t even express the amount of pleasure & joy I experience with those individuals- some amazing moments, to be sure.

I’ve given about 10,000 cards. Some people now call me “the You Matter Lady.” I feel so full and a definite shift in my emotions (for the better) regardless of how I’m feeling before giving a card. I’ve actually had people tell me things such as, “You are the one I saw this at the teller’s window at the bank” or “at the cash register in the grocery store” etc. I go nowhere without them. They are with my cash & credit card, in all my jacket/coat pockets, my purse, my jean pockets, anywhere I can stash them.”
