As Christmas draws to a close, we can reflect on all of the kindness that was shared. However, our list of hurting, lonely people doesn't go away with Santa's sleigh. As long as people need us, we will continue to spread joy and cheer wherever we can. "Are you still doing that Sister Hugs thing?" Common question. While it's a part of me, it has become so much bigger than me. I get emails all of the time from people doing our thing with others - spreading the love. It's not my thing, it's our thing. And I honestly believe it's God's thing. I believe He smiles on our mission and has helped us out more times than I can count- timing, donations, motivation. He guides us through this 'thing'.
Last year we did a scarf collection for the poor. Two years ago a red scarf collection for the heart Association. This year we are once again going to collect scarves. Red ones will be donated to the heart Association, warm ones to the homeless, others saved for gifts for Love Bombs.
We are also in need of old China plates. Dessert size in any pattern, but pretty, "girly" ones.
Just a few ramblings from me....Happy Saturday!
