THANK YOU!!!!

...so i just wanted to send out a MEGA SUPER THANK YOU to all my friends who responded to my emails i sent out a few weeks ago and gave so generously to my friend Charleen and her 3 children, who lost pretty much EVERYTHING in their home due to a house fire in October!!!
charleen and her kids had to live in a hotel for a few weeks until the insurance company approved the home she is renting now, until she will be able to return to her newly renovated home around April 2008!
i have been collecting non-parishable food items, gently used toys and books and clothing, household items and just about whatever you kind people were willing to help out with!!
here's the bulk of the delivery i made to her house on wednesday night....

...i am soooo grateful to have people in my life with the kindest, sweetest and biggest hearts in the world!! i went for dinner with charleen wednesday night and showed her the photo above on my camera and told her what i had been up to....
she was in shock!!! and i felt so good bringing all this to my friends 'temporary' home for her and the kids knowing that you all did something so selflessly to help my friend!!
charleen showed me a stack of photos taken in the house after the fire and i cannot tell you how awful a feeling it is to see such devastating images that happened to people you love and care about. seeing some of the kids burned up toys and bedrooms broke my heart...
so, again my friends...
i cannot thank you enough!!!
thank you ...thank you....thank you...
HUGS!!!
i will give you some faces to the names you've been hearing about from me...
this is Charleen and her oldest daughter Burgandy ( 11 years old )...oh , and Jersey their dog...
...little sleeping angel #1...Arizona ( 6 years old )...

...and little sleeping angel #2 Hudson ( 3 years old )...

...thank you again everyone from the bottom of my heart for all your generosity and help!!!
:O)
