Beyond exhausted ...
But it's a good exhausted. The long weekend was wonderful. To say the least. Lots to re-cap but it will have to wait. Headed to CHLA today after church and made a blanket drop. Forty in all. Twenty to our home away from home, 4E and the rest went to other kiddos that needed to be warm and snuggly. A huge and not nearly appreciative enough , thank you, to all who are making this project possible. I have an angel in Utah, Karen, that just keeps sending me the products of her hard work. I have several friends here who donate their time, talent and treasure and I have my girls, who jumped in and helped me do ten over the last few days. Thank you one and all. I could never, ever be doing this without you all. I am hoping to do my next drop at the beginning of March, the 2nd to be exact. It happens to be a little courageous someone's 3rd birthday and I thought that would be the absolute perfect time. The blankets were a hit and boy does it feel amazing to see this project coming to fruition. A beginning to a pay it forward that I will never, ever be able to do justice to, ever.
