It's been a rough few weeks in my world - things have gotten a little topsy-turvy, leaving me to wonder if I'm really on the right path or if I'm just chasing down a dream instead of facing reality. And then I got a note in my inbox that both brightened my day and reminded me why I'm on this particular road. It was from Saundra of Project Liberty, and she asked that I share a piece of that note with you. I do so now, gladly. I hope it reminds you, like it did me, that we can all make a difference in this world. We have the ability to make it a better place if we only try.
I want to tell you about one of your readers who read "Throwaway". She saw the info in the back of the book about PL and was so excited that we were so close to her in Grand Rapids, MI. She called me and set up a fundraiser Mother/daughter TEA at her church! It was great! I spoke at the church one week on a Sunday and then at the TEA. They raised almost $900 for us! Amazing for a small group!
Rolling hills that had been vibrant green just weeks ago were now muted in tone, as if they were taking a deep breath before bursting into the song of fall.
