    We have received over 1200 letters from 42 states

    Arizona  Know that we are thinking of you and are sending you
    thoughts of joy and happiness.

    Arkansas I have been painting lately. I have always loved art but never thought I could do it. I am 68 now and giving it a go. It has brought so much joy to my life.

    California What a joy it is to see the golden rays of sunshine trickle through the leaves of my black walnut tree. If you were here you would hear the chattering of the squirrels and the chirping of the hummingbirds.

    Colorado I am so enjoying the change in the season and can feel the sunshine through the window. We are thinking of you. Know your Snowline care team is here for you.

    Connecticut Today I watched a frog as it sat still in the pond in my backyard. Was it searching for a fly or just enjoying the cool waters? it makes me laugh to wonder.

    Delaware I hope your mood is brightened by this letter. May you truly feel the sunshine in your heart.

    Florida Summer is right around the corner which means the smell of sunscreen and saltwater will be in the air in Florida.

    Georgia Nature is an amazing gift. It always reminds me to pause and appreciate what life is about.

    Hawaii It is nice to meet you. I wanted to let you know you have so many people thinking of you! Even strangers such as I. To make it even more amazing, the call to write letters for you and those in similar situations has reached all the way to Hawaii.

    Idaho Today I planted lavender in my garden. I will use it to make homemade tea and candles.

    Illinois My mother taught me how to bake. I am now passing that on to my own daughter. Yesterday, we made scones. I wish you could smell them from here.

    Indiana The air is ripe with Golden Iris’ and purple violets.

    Iowa Have you ever gone fishing in the rain? Yesterday I went and it was magnificent.

    Kansas You are in my thoughts. Know that you are so very special.

    Kentucky

    Louisiana I wake every morning with the birds. I think they must be telling me it is time to start my day. If I am in a silly mood I answer them back.

    Maine The days here have been quite beautiful. One of my favorite things to do is watch this old oak tree in my yard as the leaves dance in the wind.

    Maryland Know someone from Maryland is thinking of you. We may be on different coasts but we are all living under the same sunshine.

    Massachusetts We are all connected to each other in this great big world.

    Michigan You matter. You are loved. Keep smiling and pass it on.

    Minnesota The flowers are budding -- such a great sight after a long hard winter.

    Mississippi I hope you know that this letter comes from the bottom of my heart.

    Missouri We went for a drive the other evening to watch the sun go down. I forgot how beautiful the summer sun is when it sets.

    Nevada Know you are a gift to the people around you.

    New Hampshire I watched my grandson yesterday. He is just turned three. I asked him to tell me something to say to you. He said “ I want to be a dinosaur when I grow up” I laughed and laughed.

    New Jersey I hope you get the chance to enjoy the warmth and days of sunshine as well.

    New Mexico I’ve always loved art and learning how to paint and draw. My pets are my subjects. They just don’t know how to sit still.

    New York We all need support and encouragement one time or another in our lifetime. I want you to know that there are so many people who care and are thinking about you.

    North Carolina I have been watching a family of geese and goslings grow. It reminds me how beautiful life can be.

    North Dakota

    Ohio I can’t believe the heat of the season is already here. The sounds of kids playing their summer games outside reminds me to enjoy it.

    Oklahoma We are enjoying the summer even though, here in Oklahoma, the heat could “fry an egg on the sidewalk”.

    Oregon We cook a lot in my family. Tonight we had stew and bread my daughter made. Great meal but now it is time for the dishes.

    Pennsylvania Remember to keep your head held high and look on the bright side.

    Rhode Island I’ve been watching caterpillars on my patio. It is amazing to watch how quickly they can weave a cacoon.

    South Carolina It is always so nice to get a letter in the mail. I hope you enjoy this one all the way from South Carolina.

    Tennessee One of my favorite parts about spring is looking out the window and watching all the flowers bloom and grow. Nature Is beautiful and persistent.

    Texas I’ve been planting my garden with tomatoes and green beans. It has been a joy to watch them grow.

    Utah I am wishing you days of sunshine and joy as summer approaches.

    Virginia We read poetry in the evening. It is one of my favorite things to do. I hope you are able to read something you love today.

    Washington Here for you and here for everything. My heart is with you during these times.

    West Virginia You are loved.

    Wisconsin I take walks with my dog after work. Well, really my dog takes me for a walk. He is a Great Dane and his name is Sir Charles.

    Wyoming Do know that your Snowline team is here for you. We all are.
