A quick update about the Hug a Heart Card Drive before I go. Though we still have a few more days left of the card drive and more cards on the way, I am excited to share with you that as of Tuesday, we have collected 230 cards! Oh how amazing this is! That's 230 heart patients at Nationwide Children's Hospital that we will be bringing smile and encouragement to so far this Heart Month. Thank you so much to all that helped send in cards! 

Please be sure to join me on February 28th for the final cards count and the winners of the prize giveaways.

Below are some quick photos of some of the cards received. My apology. Due to an incredibly busy week, I was unable to photograph every single cards nor do proper editing of the photo quality.

Thank you for joining me today and for taking the time to share your comment with me.  May you have a blessed day.
