It is Sunday evening and my feet ache! I worked all day at the Rams Vs. Redskins football game!
I got to help out at a Lemonade stand, it is hard work, you not only have to make the darn lemonade but you have to keep supply up with demand. There was alot of demand!
This volunteer day gave funds to my husband's former unit to raise funds for their Christmas party. (Which trust me on this one is a blast every year).
Sorry I don't have any photos to post tonight, I haven't gotten any stamping done as of yet. I will be doing some major housework and laundry tomorrow. I figure I have earned some stamping time! Besides I have a bunch of 50% off Michael's coupons that really *need* to be used! I have mentioned before the "Send Me" foundation that helps solidgers who have been injured or hurt or have retired and find themselves in difficult situations. I am still trying to find their websight so you contribute time and money if you so feel the need. I have personally seen some outstanding things happen because of this organization.
In most recent times, the foundation along with First Baptist Church of Laurel have been assisting Louise Rosa-Valentine. He was injured in an IED attack in Iraq. He has lost both legs below the knee, one arm, the hearing in both ears and his taste. Currrently (as of our last week about a week ago) he was doing physical therapy to get ready for prostetic limbs as well as he will be getting a hearing aide and hearing implant surgery.
The organization along with the Church have begun renovations to make his home handi-cap accessible. He also just learned he and his girlfriend are expecting their second child!
His positive spirit and faith in the Lord are just fantastic, he does live here in the local area (about 5 miles from our home) and there will be continuing need. It is a blessing to know this young man. If you are local, his story appears in the Gazette newspaper!
I hope every one will pray for this family and the great need.
