Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Yesterday evening, I hit a really low point. I have been checking facebook constantly for updates on the Sanford tornado donation needs. They were asking for baby bottles, formula, diapers and onesies. It really broke my heart to think of mothers that had babies that needed things that they couldn't provide. (I also think of orphans sometimes in the middle of the night because that is what I do.) It bothered me all night and then first thing this morning too.

I decided to go through clothes and ask people that I know for any donations. Big Daddy called and when I told him about it he said he thought we should plan to go to Sanford on Friday. We both feel like we need to do something. So, I have a friend that lives close by that had felt like she should donate some clothes that she needed to get rid of. She was just about to try and find a donation sight when she received my email. Right now, my minivan has a little less room in the back because we went over after dinner and picked up the clothes! I'm going to check with a few local groups on Friday and then Big Daddy are planning to purchase some of the most needed items and deliver them to Sanford asap.

**I just had another facebook friend from high school contact me to let me know that his church will also be collecting items for me to deliver!!**

I spent my morning getting things together and then right before lunch, the children lost their minds. Oh.My.Goodness. I'm not sure what happened, but they have taken turns crying all day. Maggie's excuse when Big Daddy is out of town is always "I just miss my Daddy". Of course, Maggie can't stand for Ellie to be upset so she read books to her (in her bed) for at least thirty peaceful minutes. Then she said, "Well, Ellie whined the whole time I read books and I gave her all of her babies so I think she just misses her Daddy".

Tomorrow has to be better. Maggie has an Easter parade at preschool. Ellie will have a "Nana Day" so that I can walk with Maggie three blocks to an old theater, see a magic show and then hunt for Easter eggs. Sounds fun, right?

Good for you for doing something for the people of Sanford! So many times I feel like I should do something for people who are suffering or going through difficult times and I just don't know what to do! God will bless you richly for meeting the needs of others!!
