peace ~ posted by Melissa

 
 
the best thing about hard times is the moment when you feel like you've turned the corner and things just may be returning to normal
 
today I sit in a quiet house ~ no tv ~ no radio ~ and appreciate the silence
 
 
our health crisis is 99.9% behind us ~ I finally feel for the first time in 5 months that there's no need for any more worry
 
my daily routines are getting back to normal ~ I'm finding time to help those in need, instead of feeling needy
 
my wish for you in 2014 is that you have peace and joy and hope all throughout the upcoming year
 
thanks to everyone that is helping with Operation Alex ~ I can't thank you enough ~ the first batch of hats will be delivered this week and another later in the month as more are finished
 
hopefully we'll bring some joy and peace to a family that got off to a very difficult start this year ~ I am thankful for all of you
 
happy new year, all   ~   Melissa

  2. Let me know if you need more hats. That was the first time I saw Operation Alex. I'd be happy to contribute! Here's to a HEALTHY New Year! In the mean time I'm sending lots of prayers.

    1. how did I get so lucky to find you, Kelly? I don't recall but I'm so glad I did :)
      you are amazing

    2. I'm glad you found Kelly too. In a short time I've been a recipient of her generosity (both of you really) and I'm just one person. You two have brought joy to a lot of people -- no doubt. {{Hugs}}

      Good to know your life is settling back into a normal routine.
