Good Friends


My good friend Melissa Vossler just emailed me this picture (she's the one in the wedding dress:)). She's coming down from her new home in Reno for a few days in December. Can't wait to see you girl!

Just thought I'd post something about someone I'm thankful for, in addition to all of the wonderful friends I've been blessed with.  I have great friends, a wonderful family, and a roof over my head. I'm a blessed person.

This Christmas season, I'm looking for ways to bless those who aren't as fortunate as I am. I'm thinking about starting a toy drive again for the kids at Children's Hospital. I will certainly post a date and time on this site for all who'd like to donate or come along. It's an unforgettable experience handing a hurting child a present, knowing he or she will be spending Christmas and the New Year in a hospital bed. Some of them won't make it to New Year's Day. It's quite a sobering reminder of how fragile life can be.

I encourage all of you who are in a place to bless someone who needs it, to do so. We have been given comfort to comfort those who have no comfort. We have to inconvenience our convenience, to quote Jackson Senyonga. Bless a member of our Armed forces, a child in a hospital bed, an elderly person in a home, whatever you can do to make this Christmas season everything it's supposed to be...a season of hope and caring for our fellow man.
