Christmas Presents

Thursday, December 08, 2011

I remember growing up and not getting much for Christmas as we got older. Iíll never forget the Christmas I got a shirt, a record album and a sleeping bag. I was a young teen and I hated going back to school and having the other kids ask, 'So what did you get for Christmas?' I just said, 'clothes and things'. I felt bad about it and it's something I think about every Christmas. There were 4 girls and I know my parents did the best they could.

So in the true spirit of Christmas, this year I took 5 kids off the Angel tree at our local grocery store. I picked 2 girls and 3 boys ages ranging from 1 to 12 and got them each 7 gifts. I told the old man not to buy me anything that this year that my Christmas present is giving to other kids that otherwise wouldn't have a Merry Christmas.

I'm not looking for a pat on the back or a high 5 or anything like that. I just hope the gifts I bought them put a smile on their little faces. I know I canít help them all, I only wish I could do more for the other kids on the tree. I hate to think of any child not having a good Christmas.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas emoticon

    Hi Tina;

I think that was very nice of you and I know they will love what you gave them. I know about those programs because I ran the Salvation 28 years in De. and we had a Christmas toy shop that we gave children beautiful toys, hats gloves and other clothes people bought. I loved doing it and we also sponsored families for people. God bless you always. Learn something new every day.

    I spent a week with my daughter after she had surgery and one of the most important things for her was to be sure to get the gifts for the 10 Angel Tree kids. We had a great time doing it!

    Aww dang it, you're making me tear up! John and I did that last year at our church. It's such a great feeling to know that these kids will have a better holiday because someone out there cares for them and loves them. I already thought you were amazing but now I know for sure that you are mind blowing! :O)

    What a wonderful gift to yourself! I tend to go over board and keep buying for my kids, my mom, my brother. It is just so much fun to give. You are very thoughtful. Have a very happy holiday.

HOW COULD THEY DO THIS???

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

This is the post I left on Dale Jr's, Kelley Earnhardt's, PIR, Hendrick Motorsports & the National Guard FB pages...'I was just informed that the National Guard people at PIR packed up their display and left the flats of posters and cases of 8x10 photos of Dale Jr. on the ground to be walked on and kicked about. Then a grounds keeper came along and picked them up and threw them in the trash. This has me so upset. There is another race this season that the items could have been taken to and handed out. I myself missed this display and would have loved to have gotten some of it. I'm thinking they left a little early. I saw the hauler leaving and there was still plenty of time left before the race started. I was also told that they packed up early on Fri too. So I'll bet it's safe to say they did on Saturday as well. I hope someone has a talk with these people. Dale Jr. fans are offended by this. If they didn't want to haul the items around, all they had to do was take it out of the race track then dispose of it out of the eyes of the fans.' We need to spread the word that this is no acceptable behavior.

This is my only reply so far... National Guard.... 'Tina, we're sorry to hear about this incident and that it upset you. Thank you for your support of Dale Jr.'

Come on, where is the assurance that this will NOT happen again! Kelley, it's your brother where's your outrage? I just don't get it! EVERY Dale Jr fan should be as OUTRAGED as I am!

Doesn't the taxpayer dollars fun the National Guard? So not only did they throw away a LOT of posters and photos of Dale Jr, they threw away taxpayer dollars. That should have even the non Dale Jr fans outraged! What a WASTE!

    That's awful! I'm not a fan of Dale Ernhart, Jr., but I'm a fan of other people and I can just imagine how you feel like it was such a waste of resources, and disrespectful. Maybe things will start being done in a better way, now that there have been some complaints. Hopefully!

    Crappy, just plain crappy. The National Guard I belonged to back in the day would not have acted this way. Respect was one of the many things we were taught and expected to display. Unfortunately, respect is one of the big things missing in our society today.

Draw a heart on your wrist, change the world.
On April 25th-26th, 2011, there will be a day dedicated to people who are battling depression and suicide and to advocate a lifestyle of unconditional love. on this day, draw a heart on your wrist, to symbolize that you are wearing your heart on your sleeve. ask someone how theyíre doing. tell someone you love them. nobody should have to feel so bad about themselves that they take their own life. take this challenge. save someoneís life.

    Hi Tina;
Sorry I didn't see this because I lost my son in law last year because of bipolar. My youngest daughter married into a famly that has 2 people with bipolar and I hope my GD doesn't show signs of it. Her sister in law has it along with one of her sons. My daghter isn't going to have anymore children.

Stay healthy and exercise, eat well. God bless you always. Dale is doing okay at this time, he is moving up in 11 place. Been hard tonight for him. Keep learning from Spark people.

    I know it's not. I had a cousin take his life as a teen. I have a niece that is bi-polar. This affects so many. Some get through it and others do not. This is near and dear to my heart. I added a picture of mine. I will redraw it after I take a shower. Thanks and please spread the word. It's all over Facebook.

    I will most definitely be sporting a heart on my wrist tomorrow! Because myself, my dad, my grandma, and my sister all battle depression. It's not an easy thing to go through!

Thanks for posting!
