A reminder that if you are dropping off gifts for Santa from Sammy in Athens or Tyler, the deadline is November 22nd. That's the last time we'll be in Athens to pick them up before Christmas. For those dropping off in Frisco or the DFW area, you still have until December 19th.
I also want to thank everyone who has donated. You have been a blessing. After seeing pictures on Facebook and boxes filled at drop off locations, I drove by Children's last night on my way home from work. Even driving by Children's is usually an anxiety inducing experience, and sometimes I still get teary just seeing the hospital out of the corner of my eye. But last night when I drove by, I looked directly out my window and into the over lit hallways of the hospital. Running through my mind was wow, some awesome people are really going to bless those kids this Christmas. For the first time ever, I am looking forward to pulling into the parking lot of that hospital and walking in those doors because so many kind individuals have so much to offer. So, thank you. That is something I did not think I could ever be given.
