Tonite my husband and I attended an event in Alexandria, Va. for a local charity. Most of their funds are from private donations, as well as from the silent auction they hold once a year. They help people in the community, with rent, utilities and getting them out of shelters and back into a place of their own. They also pay for kids to attend camp during the summer, which they would not be able to have that opportunity. I sometimes don't think about how fortunate I am. And how blessed I am that we aren't having to sruggle like many are having to do these days. After the event ended this evening, I approached the chairwoman and asked if I might be able to donate a framed sampler that they could auction off next year. She was thrilled with the idea. Now I just need to decide what to do, and know that I have until next Jan. to get it finished and framed. Hmmmm.
