Trying to Keep the "Reason for the Season"

Bryan and I had an opportunity through our church to help with some holiday good deeds. It was great to get out and see what wonderful things are available for people in need right here in Woodstock. We delivered foodbaskets to the Hope Center it is an awesome place for women who find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy, a monumental time in a person's life for sure. We had a tour of the facility, and met the director Cindy O'Leary, she is so full of joy! she is doing such wonderful work, she left her lucrative corporate job to do "God's work" and seems so happy. Maybe in the future I will become a mentor for new mothers since, I think I developed some mommy skills raising my 2 boys.

Today we are going to deliver our Adopt a Senior gifts and food, I am doing this in honor of Jim's Mom and my grandmothers, I can't stand the thought of lonely elderly people at Christmas! I really don't feel like it is enough, but we got them what they requested.
After this we will get back to the partying and shopping!

Chelle - that is so wonderful. Carl and I always find a couple of charities to contribute to at this time of year, but we've never taken the time to really give of ourselves directly...that takes a really wonderful heart. Nice work.
