Mishpacha had covered Kavanah Kards several times, and told me that they had given "enough" coverage to them. No problem, since whatever Hashem wants will happen no matter how much hishtadlus we do (although we do have to do it), so my focus was in another direction.
About three weeks later, I got an email from Mishpacha Junior, asking if I would like to contribute something to a coming article for children about davening on Yom Kippur. Of course I said yes, then puzzled (for a minute) over what to write. Suddenly, the memory of how beautifully my grandchildren had set the table for Shabbos when I came "popped" into my mind (what a "coincidence :), leading me to use that example to illustrate how welcome guests feel when you do special things to enhance their time with you. Then I segued into mentioning Kavanah Kards, and how they show Hashem how important your time with Him is.
I told the editor that I would be glad to do a Kavanah Kard for children, but there was no response.
Two weeks later, I got a request to send Mishpacha a kid's card--uh oh! I didn't have one. In a mad rush I threw together some ideas and sent them to the graphic designer who did all the Kavanah Kards. After a hundred emails of ideas back and forth, we came up with 2 ideas: one was an interactive 4 x 8 bookmark which children could decorate, with places to write in what they want to ask Hashem to help them with and what they want to thank Hashem for. The other one was a happy, colorful 3 x 6" bookmark . (see KAVANAH KARDS FOR KIDS)
The end of the story was a cute insert in the article (see ARTICLES to download it), with a picture of the interactive Kids' Kavanah Kard bookmark.
Amazing! Told no, then asked to be in an article just three weeks later!
As a result of the article, a radio show host in Eretz Yisroel contacted me about an interview in mid-November BE"H, and have already had a request for personalized Kid's Kards.
Love the way Hashem shows how much he wants and supports Kavanah Kards!
