Hearty

We went to that spaghetti dinner on Saturday night and I wanted to give you an update. Over $12,000 was raised for James and his family. The turn out was amazing. I had a very hard time holding back the tears. So happy the family is getting so much support, so sad that James has to be sick, and so thankful for our many many blessings.

Another friend of mine is reaching out to help a family in her homeschool group. Shelby Grace is a little girl with leukemia and as you can imagine, she and those that love her are having a very hard time. Happi opened up a Usbourne Books e-show in Shelby's name where 100% of her commission will go to the family, and any purchases will earn free books for Shelby and her siblings.

You can order until 12/31 but if you want your books in time for Christmas, you'll need to place your order no later than tomorrow, 12/15.



One last thing: When was the last time you bent down and looked into your child's eyes and really looked into your child's eyes? While they speak to you. While you speak to them? While you are both quiet. I'm willing my heart to remember to do this always.
