I wanted to thank all of you who came by to offer your support for our friend Paula and her family. The update on our fundraiser: 70+ orders, and I'm still logging them in. *THANK YOU*. This is really cool. If you haven't read all the comments in the last post you should click and have a look - we've gotten two from Paula, and she reminds us all to check our smoke alarms, practice our escape routes, check on our insurance, and get a good fire-proof safety box.
Thank you for your kind words for my brother and his family. I think your prayers and good vibes worked as it appears they have held the tides from entering their home. It will be some time before life is normal but eventually they will be sleeping in their own beds again. *offers prayers of gratitude*
One more note of thanks to friends and readers who have spread the word about the fundraiser. I really appreciate that this has grown wings and got bigger than I even hoped. I'm enclosing a button, since I've already offered it to some...if you want to use it please link it to the order page on GPP HERE.
