Giving kit

You are all such examples to me. I cannot believe how many of you have given donations and prayers to my friend and her baby Bree...and the donations and words of encouragement just keep coming. This is what the holiday seasons are all about - GIVING. When I was a little girl it was all about receiving. But I have learned throughout the years that giving to others is what brings pure happiness. And during the holidays, giving just comes naturally. I hope that as you give of yourself to others, be it a prayer, a plate of goodies, a hug, your time, etc. that you will experience a feeling of warmth that a fireplace doesn't hold a candle to. Enjoy the holidays!

Okay Summer, so here I am trying to create my Christmas Card to send out to people and then as I'm trying to get ideas I decided to check my email and then my google reader opened up and BAM! There was the perfect kit. This giving kit is exactly what I was looking for. In fact, I was just messaging my sister-in-law asking her if she knew where any cute word art was. Yours is totally cute! I'm SO using it. Thank you for sharing and for being so giving to all of us "less talented" folk. You're an incredible person!

Summer, thank you so much for your wonderful kits and all that you have done for baby Bree and the Cook family. My heart aches for them and hope that Bree can beat this horrible cancer. My best friend just lost her three year old daughter to cancer. I'm so thankful they have a wonderful friend like you to help them through this extremely difficult time, they will need you every step of the way. Thanks so much for all that you are doing for baby Bree and her family.
