Busy Times

What a busy day! But, my hair looks great thanks to Roland, the cranberry sauce and gifts are ready for the Tim family dinner tonight, and other family things are getting sorted.

Rather than an idea today, let's talk about the Christmas spirit. When Joan and I had the New Year Party in September we collecte donations for the Women's Rural Resource Centre in Strathroy. We delivered over $550 to the shelter and the woman who accepted the gift said it would be used for their Food Bank. Last Monday night the Sew Happy Quilt Group in Mt Brydges collected food for them as their need was still so great. Last night my book club friends collected donations of food for them because they heard the need was so great.

So today I hope you will think of those, especially women and children in shelters, who have such a basic need as food for Christmas. We keep our family and friends warm with our quilts and quilted items. Shall we keep others warm with gifts of food?
