Hi Karol,

Whew, your blog tells us that you did more than is even remotely possible!!! You must have been so tired when all that was accomplished. I really liked the idea of the rocking horse. That will make some child's Christmas morning much happier. We have an Angel Tree here in our park and we choose a name and they give us the age and gender of the child and so we buy things age appropriate that this child will receive for Christmas. We so hope it makes their Christmas morning happy. There are so many families in our area that are really destitute this year. Michigan is at the bottom of the barrel in unemployment, lost pensions, etc. It is a sad state of affairs, and especially when you think of the children that perhaps won't get any gifts this year. We also donate food items that are given to the families in need. Every little bit helps someone. It surely makes us count our blessings and we all need reminding of that once in awhile.

I'm glad you're finally getting the business books all straightened out. That will be a big relief. Ted just couldn't keep it up as he became more ill. You're an angel in disguise to be able to do all you do for so many.

Wishing you the very best. Always thinking of you. Love, Ruth
