Leah's Hope

It's finally Friday!  This has been a busy week but I have accomplished a lot.  I am almost settled in  I am re posting this since something went wrong with Blogger and they wiped out 2 whole days of postings.  If you have followed  me very long, you know about my nephew Jamie who has Downs Syndrome and what a blessing he has been to our family.  A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this blog, Leah's Hope, and read the story of a mother who had recently lost her precious baby girl from some of the complications that go along with Downs Syndrome.  Her story is heart wrenching to say the least but the thing that stands out to me is what she is doing to work through her grief.  She has started a mission to give baskets to the parents of children that are hospitalized for long periods of time filled with things they need to make their burden of being away from home a little easier.  She knows first hand what these needs are.  She takes monetary donations as well as things she has listed on her blog.  I really admire what she is doing and so I gave a small donation.   Last week I got this beautiful thank you card in the mail from her so I thought I would share it with you, you can check out the whole story here.

Here is one more photo of my stamp and punch storage.  I have two of these shelving units, this is 15 feet long and the one is 10 feet long and they have shelves on both sides.  This side has all my clear mount stamps plus all my punches and miscellaneous tools and the other side is full of my wood mount stamp sets.  I use the tops to display current projects.  Thanks for stopping by!

Wow... Thank you so much for your nice words on your blog and appreciate everything! It's definitely a daily struggle of the loss of my daughter, Leah but it does my heart good to be able to provide for others and possibly lift a few spirits!

Love your blog... working on my own paper crafting - Not that great yet! Have a great plan for Father's Day at the hospital!

Thank you again - You are a Blessing!
