My First CWL Event Rocked!!!!

on February 28, 2009 - 6:49pm

OMG!!! Yesterday was a blast! I was not expecting the number of Beenies and Blankets that we had. We had 522 beenies and 70 blankets!

I know that Janet and Janice have both said thanks to everyone but I want to say it also, Thank You! Some of them were so cute, I wanted to try and contact some of you guys to get you to make me one just like it!

The hospital let US hand the beenies and the blankets out to the kids. It was so much fun, we got to talk to the kids and parents.

One Mom even asked Janet if she could take a pic of her daughter receiving the blanket.

We all were holding back the tears when we talked to one patient who said that she had been comeing to the hospital for 12 years, just graduated from High School, and was currently attending nursing school so that SHE could work at the Childrens Hospital. I'm fighting back the tears just thinking about it! Oh I hope that everyone gets a chance to go to the hospitals and meet the kids and families, it touched me in away that words cannot describe, I'm still on cloud 9. Well I have laundry to do from the trip, thank you again to everyone who sent beenies and blankets. We definately covered those wonderful kids with love!

Ready for my 1st GFC event

on February 16, 2009 - 6:18pm

I've got all but one blanket done, and I plan on finishing it this weekend. I can't wait!! It is going to be so much fun! Get to see all the kids, and hang out with my fellow Grobanites! There are not a lot of Grobanites in Gilmer, Texas (A.K.A. B.F.E.). I'm also going to get the chance to see some of my family that live down in Houston. I don't get to see them that often, so I not only get to have fun with Grobies but my family. This is going to be a great weekend for me!

Valentines Day

on February 13, 2009 - 7:42pm

Tomorrow is the day that we celebrate love, a friend of mine is not going to have a good day. Her husband was arrested last week on federal charges for drug possession. They both have been involved in that side of life, and this isn’t his first time to be arrested for drugs. You would have thought he would have learned his lesson the first time, but noooooooo. Marguerite, one of my co-workers and friend, and I decided to get her a little something for Valentines, and one of the things that I got her was some of Josh’s songs. I wish I could have given her a copy of ‘A Collection’ but it isn’t available in the US (Josh and WB that would be a hint!). : ( The first song I put on the CD was “You Are Loved (Don’t Give Up)” because I knew that she needed to hear it. Please keep her and her family (yes she has two daughters) in your thoughts and prayers.

Working on my CWL stuff

on January 15, 2009 - 7:52pm

I am so mad at Wal-Mart!! You would think that a company that has groves in it's fabric tables could have employees that could cut a straight line, but noooooooooooo. I've got the coolest print for a little girl, but I had to really shave it down because of the backing that I got at wallyworld. It makes me so mad that I had to cut it down so much, the fring is going to look so funny. I hate stupid people!
