Every year the girls write letters to Santa. Seren wrote a letter that made me proud but so sad at the same time. We haven’t had much luck making or keeping friends here our new town. Sadly we just haven’t connected with people. Her letter is a little hard to read but you should be able to get the jist.
Well as sometimes happens…an opportunity came for Seren and Milena to help a family in desperate need.
A family of 3 lost everything to a house fire that took everything they owned. This lovely little community came together fast. We suggested that the girls donate all the cans and bottles that they had been collecting all summer, the bags we had cleaned up in the garage from the prior owner and what we had saved to the family. The girls agreed. So, the girls and Bill went out to the garage and bagged them all up. A neighbor also asked for us to pick up a bag and a few bottles she had to add to the girls’ bottle collection.
After just over an hour we had sorted all the bottles. The grand total was $53.13!!
They felt great helping out a family. I hope this has helped cover one of Seren’s wishes. I sent out a challenge to my Facebook Friends and Family to do something to help make Seren’s wish of helping other come true.
So I challenge all who follow me to do something that helps another in need. It can be as little as giving a homeless person an orange…the sky is the limit.
