Thank You Santa for Our New BFF!

There she is...Our new baby to help keep us cool in the New year.

Yea, he now has a new boat thanks to us!

And so it begins...Team Angel to the Rescue!

Love this time of the year...My family and I love volunteering at the Salvation Army Angel Tree program.  We've been spending the last several days when we have spare time to help get things ready to go for the families to pick them up.  We have only one goal - to ensure every single child receives a gift of clothing and of toys through the Angel Tree program. 

The program has become an amazing team effort and one that has taken a life of its own.  There are so many reasons to be thankful this year...For me, it's the kids and the families who are uplifted in their time of need through the generosity and the love of others.

Good Sky Chatter

“One of the most important lessons I have learned over the past few years is how important it is to have time and space for being with what’s real in my life — to celebrate the joys, grieve the losses, shed my tears, sit with the questions, feel my anger, attend to my loneliness.”
Ruth Haley Barton, Sacred Rhythms
