Hey everyone,

Just passing along this week’s love bomb mission.

Hey everyone,

Man, this is a hard one. Bonnie is a sweet woman who was suggested to us by one of our own team members (her niece!), Rachael.

Bonnie lost her second son in a motorcycle accident recently, and she writes,

“Forty Percent….Gone. If I break it down by the numbers that is my loss so far. Five kids, two gone. Forty percent of my posterity gone.”

In Rachael’s words, “The loss was hard for us, but mostly for his parents. My Aunt Bonnie lost one child a few years ago, so this is her second son to pass away. It’s hard to lose one son as it is, and now she has lost another. My Aunt could really use some love and words of comfort at this time.”

I’ve heard it said that there is no pain more excruciating or deep than a mother losing her child, as it is an unnatural and “backwards” loss. No parent should have to see their child die, much less two.

Please join me in showering Bonnie in love, compassion and comfort.

Time to drop a Love Bomb, team!

I know this love bomb comes a little bit later, but it is not one that needs immediate action.

Hey Team!

This past weekend I took a 3 day break from all technology (phone, internet, etc).

It was so rewarding. I’m a huge fan of social networking, and I absolutely love the way it allows me to meet people and remain connected with friends in ways that just aren’t physically possible. Obviously it’s useful; it makes Love Bomb possible! 😉

That being said, this weekend I was able to write a handful of letters to some people I love dearly. I wouldn’t have had the time otherwise.

So, this week I thought we’d do an unplugged version of Love Bomb.

Instead of leaving a comment for someone online, I would like all of you to give a handwritten note or letter (it does NOT have to be long) to someone in person. Deliver it personally or drop it in the mail.

I know this is “harder” and takes a tad bit more work on your end, but guys? We do this for OTHERS. Not for us!

This person can be family, a close friend, a new acquaintance, or a complete stranger. Just tell them they are loved, and encourage them.

If you want, email “mylovebomb@gmail.com” with the transcript of your note, a photo of it, or a little story about what happened. Or simply your thoughts on this mission! I want to be able to share the results with the whole team, so help me make that possible! I’m really excited to see what this turns out to look like.

Alright team, time to go drop a Love Bomb – IN PERSON.

Can I just add as a follow-up that I’ve been trying to do this lately and how I love getting mail and I wish that more people would write me. I think that people to people connection of old fashioned letters – well, it just makes someone feel good on the inside.
