We do as three times in year: March, September, December. This way, we can reach as many patients as we can during each year. We pick out local cancer clinics or nursing homes to bless with our donated gifts. Please take a moment to look around your house and see if you may have some of the items that we need, in order to make this project a success. Each time we visit them, the nurses are happy to see us because they do not have items give out to the patients at this time due to hospital rules.
Ask your church, school, or organization to get involved and help us to continue to bless many patients with these gifts of love. For September’s give away, we will need at least 30 gift bags for men and women.
Items we Need:
Thinking of you cards
Non profits- organizations wristbands- prostate, cervical, ovarian
Anything to cheer a patient up, men and women. Every new patient will get a bag until they run out. No candy!!!
Together we can make a difference!

Honestly, I love him so much and I am asking God to heal him, in whatever way he feels is necessary. His mother and father (my grandparents) have already passed away and are in heaven. They will both be there to welcome him with open arms, once his journey on this earth is done and God calls him home.

|My Granddad and I, three weeks before he passed away.|
Are your truly happy and free?
I am weak and sad tonight,
Embrace me with your heavenly light.
The cancer took you away,
I miss you in every way.
After the illness made you so sick.
Each memory blows me apart,
The anger has captured my heart.
Can you wipe away my tears?
Why did you have to die?
Will the tears ever dry?

The Laugh at Cancer Support Community is sponsoring this project, but we are not a non-profit. We just care about those who are stuck in a nursing home or hospital during Christmas time and would like the patients to know someone does care. Thank you to all who will be taking the time help with this Blankets of Hope project. Together we can make a difference!

Once in awhile, I would visit and I would feel like I was at home again. I moved down the road from the Church and now I go whenever I can. I deal with being sick a lot, but I so thankful for the fellowship I have with the members of the church.

|My seventh wedding anniversary is coming up Nov. 30th.|
I wanted to share our wedding story with you that I wrote four years ago.
November 30th 2006 was my official wedding day, but it was a day that I will truly never forget. I began the day excited about our wedding plans and I worked hard to make sure everything was perfect. I didn't want a big wedding, so I invited only my and his family to the wedding. Suddenly, I got a call that our Pastor was unable to marry us, due to being put in the hospital. I almost gave up on getting married that day, but my landlord was a notary and she performed the ceremony right in her office.
My husband and I were married, yet my sister-in-law decided to throw us an official wedding with the frills and all. I explained that I was already officially married and it did no good, because she was not taking no for an answer. We decided to get dressed in Jean and nice t-shirts, since I don't really care for dresses. I decided to make one demand, which was to have the ceremony in my granddad's front yard and I wanted him to give me away.
PS: We love everyone for making our day special, despite the setbacks we endured.

However, here is another idea to ponder… how about donating your cards to the military, patients in the hospital (with cancer or other illnesses), or to the less fortunate in your community? During this recession, many families may not have food or presents for Christmas. Therefore, why not take your unwanted gift cards or even gifts order to donate them to others, who will enjoy knowing that you are thinking of them. These families will enjoy the fact that you are thinking about them during this holiday season.

Thankfully, he will be able to meet new people and enjoy going to a new school where he can make friends. DJ will also be able to find new adventures to enjoy, as he grows into a little man. I will get to see him at designated times, but it will be time well spent making new memories. We will use Skype, cell phone, and Facebook to stay in touch with each other. I pray that his father, step-mother, and DJ will make it to their destination safely. I love him and I hope he explores all possibilities that God sets in front of him.
PS: A special thank you goes out to him step-mom for loving and caring for him, as I would. Thank you for being there for both my children and thank you for being such a wonder second mother. You are the best!

The first memory verse is: Matthew 19:26-But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. (KJV)
Nothing is impossible with God, so take time to get to know him as your heavenly father and strengthen your faith in him. Additionally, begin studying the Holy Bible, which is God’s letter of love to you and your family. You can begin strengthening your faith and your relationship with your heavenly father, by taking time out to study God’s word daily. Studying allows you to learn how God has helped others he loves, as well as learning how he can help you.
Always pray to your heavenly father daily and allow God to handle your burdens, instead of trying to fix them yourself. He can guide you in the ways that will help you succeed in chasing your dreams, but don’t forget about God after you have found your success. Remember, God knows your heart and he can take your success away. Especially, if it begins to separate you from him, because you know that he is a jealous God.
The second memory verse is: Luke 18:27-And he said, the things which are impossible for men are possible with God. (KJV)
Sometimes, you need to be reminded that God has a purpose for you, because you may lose your faith during everyday life. In addition, you tend to move away from God during the good times in our lives and run to him for help during the crisis and trials we may face in our daily lives. Remember that nothing is impossible with God on your side, so walk proud and know the he has a plan for you. Allow him to guide throughout life’s ups and downs, while following the plan that he has created just for you.
Start including God in on every decision you make, by praying first and waiting on his response to you. Knowing God can help you chase your dreams, as well as removing any obstacles which may pop up throughout your journey. Additionally, trust God to provide all that you need to make your dreams come true. No matter what dream God has given you, remember that the he promises that nothing is impossible for him.
