EGF DONATION DRIVE

CANDY IS HOLDING THE ANNUAL EGF DONATION DRIVE. I JUST COPIED THIS OFF HER SITE SO I DIDN'T HAVE TO RE-TYPE IT. IF ANYONE CAN HELP OUT THIS YEAR IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

4th Annual Remembering Emma Grace Donation Drive
Obviously, life took a big turn several weeks ago with Hannah's diagnosis of Friedreich's Ataxia. Thus, I'm late kicking off the annual donation drive. I've received several inquiries about whether I would continue EGF. The answer is YES.....as long as I can. I briefly considered whether I could handle everything (and it may change as Hannah's disease progresses) but then I received 3 phone calls/emails for assistance in a couple days. So, I took it as a sign to keep on keeping on as long as possible.4th Annual Remembering Emma Grace Donation Drive Date: June 1 - August 15Goal: 1187 items & $535 in cash donations Items needed:Handmade -Bereavement gowns in all sizes. Boy gowns without "frills" are in high demand. If possible, a set that includes a blanket and hat is much appreciated.Memory Boxes - This is a big request and I we only have one donor that makes them regularly.Blankets, approx 24" x 24", in any baby color - I will match with gowns I already have on hand.Purchased -Disposable Cameras Journals Votive Candles Forget-Me-Not seed packets Mesh baggies for locks of hair Books on surviving the loss of a child Mini photo frames Hand/Foot mold kits Plastic ziptop bags, gallon & larger - I have plenty of the quart sized baggies.PostagePrint cartridge - HP Black #92; HP Color #93 As always, a monetary donation is very much appreciated.

A FIRST FOR ME

CAN YOU BELIEVE I LEARNED TO USE A RIDING LAWN MOWER THIS WEEK? WELL I GAVE IN AND GOT ON THE THING. I TRY TO GET THE YARD MOWED BEFORE THE WEEKEND SO TIM CAN REST, I USE THE PUSH MOWER. WELL IT'S JUST GETTING TO HOT TO USE IT. THAT HAS TO BE IT, IT CAN'T BE THE FACT THAT I'M GETTING TO OLD TO PUSH THE THING. ANYWAY I GOT THE YARD MOWED. THERE WAS THIS ONE LITTLE TIME I TRIED TO JUMP OFF BUT I REMEMBERED TO STOP THE THING. WHY WOULD MY FIRST THOUGHT BE TO GET OFF? I'M JUST GLAD TIM WAS IN THE GARDEN WITH THE TILLER AND DIDN'T SEE ME. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MY LAST TIME ON THE THING.

WE GO TO HUNTSVILLE TODAY FOR TEST. TIM HAD SEVERAL THINGS SHOW UP ON HIS VISIT LAST WEEK WHEN HE HAD TO GET HIS PACEMAKER CHECKED. MOST WERE SHORT BUT ONE LASTED 29 MINUTES. TIM'S WORRIED ABOUT IT, I'M STAYING POSITIVE.
I HOPE THE RAIN IS GONE BY THE TIME WE LEAVE AROUND LUNCH.
