Friends,

  Ive been ever so busy:) Ive been reading Beverly Lewis Amish books. There are 5 of them and Im on number 5. I really enjoy her story telling.

  Ive been making the baby caps for the "Caps for the Capital" campaign. You can find a really cute pattern that Dee over at  crochetwithdee made. Ive made several of her cute little Tulip cap.

  Ive also been busy with my friends around here. My friend Karen had her 50th birthday on the 11th. We had a great time. She is around 6 months younger than me so I had a real fun time picking on her.

  Its really great weather here right now. Its somewhare in the late 90s. Wonderful weather. I hope your weather is great where you live too. Have a blessed day!

When our eyes are opened to the realities those that are less fortunate than us face, we are motivated to do something about it. Turning that motivation into actions can be difficult but kudos for your ambition to help others!

There's a brand new website that enables you to find local organizations that you can volunteer at and millions of places to send donations to.

Check it out, www.DontAlmostGive.org

Don’t Almost Give. Give.

Sometimes it helps to be reminded to…
· Give your used books to a local school or organization that can help under-privileged children.
· Start an office carpool. Save gas, money and get to know your coworkers.
· On your way to the store, ask a homebound or elderly neighbor if there is anything you can pick up for them.
· Give gently worn home furnishings or appliances to a needy person or organization.
· Lead by example; wear a bicycle helmet.
· Change your car’s air filter, and improve your gas mileage significantly.
· Take warm clothes, blankets or food to a homeless person that you cross paths with.
· Let staff know of spills or other dangerous conditions in their restaurant or store.
· Defend others; speak up when you hear someone use a racist remark, whether it’s a family member, neighbor, co-worker, friend or stranger.
