Every purse needs a notecard in it, a note of encouragement to the young lady who receives it. Part of me just wants to gloss over this part. But I have heard firsthand from Jason and Cinnamon Miles how much the girls treasure these notes. Writing these heartfelt notes isn't quick or easy. So I am going to tackle them the same way I did the purses - write one a day. Except I have 41 purses. You do the math. My new goal is to get these in the mail just before or after Labor Day.
