    Got Any Heart Warming Christmas Stories???
    I live a block away from Houston, TX, and unfortunately can find many, many local stories that make my heart melt around this time of year.

    Here's one about a woman w/8 kids to care for in a one bedroom apt here in Houston...

    Reading these stories makes me feel like an idiot for griping about the small things ...

    Happy Holidays All!

    I'm helping a woman to build a website after the new year for her organization that allows you to adopt the family of a deployed soldier. For the last couple of years she has apparently adopted an entire military base on her own (with her adult children's help). This year they adopted 65 families and shipped gifts to them all. As an organization I believe she adopted out over 600 families of deployed soliders this holiday season!

    Imagine being so dedicated to a cause that you would take the time out of every day to help that many people that you have never met.

    I'm freaking out this morning, hoping I covered all the bases with my short list of family and friends....

    There are some truly good people in this world....

    She should be a BLESSING to work with Liz...

    Off to Wally Mart to pick up some new bicycles for a couple of very excited little girls.

    Liz neglected to mention that she adopted a family herself and make some very beautiful gifts for them that they will not only be grateful for but will be items the parents will come to cherish.

    Thanks Liz for helping out, and building this site is just another way you are quietly helping make the world a better place.

    I'm proud to call you my daughter
