So Humbled

Seeing this photo last night humbled me so much and made me proud to be part of something this big.

How great is that for our heroes?

Exciting Mail

I received this card from one of our State Representatives who will be taking a seat on the State Senate in January 2015.  I'm assuming she saw the article posted in the paper a couple of weeks ago.  It is nice to see that someone is reading the article and word is getting out about Operation Write Home. 

This is the front of the card and the picture is of the Massachusetts State House.

Sending Holiday Cheer

Christmas is the season of giving and thinking of those that may need to be uplifted with a little bit of cheer.  There is a fella at Joe's (Joe has only met him 1 time) company that has been going through some tough times in the last couple of months.  The latest incident has left him without any income or employment at the moment.  He had to get an emergency quadruple bypass surgery done after failing his DOT physical and needed to be medevac'd to the hospital. Therefore, in spirit of the holiday the company is taking donations, but Joe and I have sent him a little something that may cheer him up and to let him know that he is being thought of everyday and to let him know that he is in our prayers. 

So I here is the hat and card that we have sent him along with some photos of our boys:
I did the hat as red, white and blue for 2 reasons - America and the Patriot's

I'm hoping that this will bring him some cheer during these tough times and that he will be well soon.  Joe said that he is supposed to return to work in March as long as he keeps doing well.

Joe's Hat

Joe has been seeing all the NFL players in their sideline hats and requested that I make one.  He wanted it in throwback Philadelphia Eagles colors.  Joe says that it is awesome and just the way he wanted it to be plus warm.

Christmas Tag

Skippy did his good Christmas deed this past Monday.  He went and delivered a gift to his little girlfriend.  Before we left he said he needed to get into the craft room so he could wrap the gift and make a tag for it.  What a creative beagle we have.

Here is the tag he made:
