My church has been collecting new and gently used toys all year to donate to needy families around Christmas. We found an organization in Bolivar Peninsula that is hosting a Christmas party for the local kids. So today, my hubbie and I packed the truck full of the donated goods and drove down to Galveston. What an awesome thing to get to be a part of!
While we were there, we drove down the seawall and through the town. It's unbelievable how much destruction there still is this long after Ike. I can't imagine how awful it must have been immediately after. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all those affected.
On a lighter note, I played football with my boys today after school. Ethan could not believe what a good defender I was. Maybe someday I'll let him know that his eyes gave away his intended direction every time!
Thought for the day:
Every day is a new opportunity to make a new happy ending.
