CaringBridge / Brooke, Kathryn, and Owen Johnson / My Story

This is why I am trying to do the "Secret Santa" idea. I got this story today and cannot imagine the pain of this family. I will be putting together some small presents for the kids (the girls love to dance!). If anyone would like to donate something (a card, a craft, etc) I can get you their contact information.


If you or someone you know need a pick me up for the holidays, a bit of extra help, a way to give a child a smile.... email me! Or leave a comment. With over 10,000+ fans, we can help each other in need.

caringbridge.org Through CaringBridge, you can be a part of Brooke, Kathryn, and Owen’s health journey by reading updates, viewing photos and leaving messages of love, hope and compassion in the guestbook. Your support will mean the world to Brooke, Kathryn, and Owen.

Momastery: Holiday Hands

I have gotten a few stories so far about those in need this Christmas season. The other day I posted this blog (http://momastery.blogspot.com/2011/10/holiday-hands.html#comments)
and stated I was going to be doing something similar.

I have a handful of packages i want to send to families in need this season. Nothing big, just fun/pretty items. Please let me know your story if you are in need. Or if you want to HELP families in need and have something you can donate to make someone's holiday joyful, let me know!

"Sometimes we need to receive, sometimes we need to give. Seasons change....I’d rather my kids have three Christmas gifts and your kids have three Chistmas gifts, than my kids have six gifts and your kids have no gifts"

Momastery: Holiday Hands

OTS Fans.. getting back into the gear of things and came across this post ... http://momastery.blogspot.com/2011/10/holiday-hands.html#comments

This brought me to tears. There is always someone that is not able to put gifts under the Christmas tree, dinner on the table at Thanksgiving, or a child waking up on Christmas morning with no gifts to open.

OTS will be doing what Momastery is doing. Gifts to those children who are in need. If you are one in need this holiday season tell me your story. If you want to help give an item, leave me your info. Let's make this season one to remember for someone who might not have thought otherwise!
