Karen called last week to ask what I would like for my birthday. I spent a lot of time thinking about this. I looked in my closet and have all the clothes I need. Even underwear without holes! My cupboards are full of food. I have a nice warm home and nothing that I really need. I have a car that runs. I can go where I want, when I want and I am feeling a lot of sorrow right now for people who have had their whole lives taken away. What I would like is for each of you to take the money you would use to buy me something and give it to one of the organizations collecting money for these people. It would bring me much pleasure to know that we helped just one family a little bit. You never know when it might be our family that needs help. I love that you care about me, but right now I feel I have more than anyone should need. Thanks, and I love each and every one of you!!!!!!!!! XXXXXXXXXOOOOOOOOO.

    I’ve done that and still want to do something for you!
    This weekend we made 12 "Care Kits" (about $10 each) and I’m sure other opportunities will come up.
    I love you for your heart but I will remember your day too!
