I feel best helping others

Saturday, December 06, 2008

I started low carb boot camp for myself but decided to share it with my team. This week the successes reported are phenomenal!!! Its so great that others are finding success with my silly little program (not really mine, just my "take" on it)

Yesterday I found out about an extremely needy family of a child in our program. This family is living in a house with ZERO furniture and no heat (its been well below freezing at night for at least a week in St Louis). Today I monitored the local Freecycle boards and was able to find them 2 beds and a stove. Also some bedding and misc stuff. I wish I could post a "needs" post but Freecycle doesn't allow that. So I've been pretty diligent about watching the emails as they come out & trying to get to them before others.

Its not very active but I sure feel good helping where I can!

    Lisa - what an amazing gesture. Thank you for helping that family, I know they are so appreciative of you and your efforts.

And, thank you for your kind and supportive words on my blogs. It was really needed right now, as you could tell, and you said all the right things. I am thankful for you, and all my other Spark friends, who are so "right there" when we are in a time of need or weakness. I wish I could meet you all in person and give you a big, fat hug! emoticon

    Lisa... thank you for talking about this needy is good to be reminded that there are many in the world with problems far greater than our own.
