But it has been well worth it! We sent out a total of 18 boxes to soldiers in Iraq, Afghanistan and in the Caribbean. It's been fun, and a lot of love from a lot of people has gone into this project.
A couple of weeks ago I made the comment to David that I felt the spirit of this project was lacking this year. It finally dawned on me what the problem was. Mom loved this project. Each year I would give weekly reports and send pictures and tell her about each stocking that we received. She was so interested and so proud. I know she has been watching again this year, but I miss telling her about all of this and her wanting to know each little detail.
Well, I love spur of the moment plans. Susan needs size 6 lace needles for her lace project, so we are meeting up with Cynthia for a knitting adventure this afternoon. Good thing I got up at 5:00 this morning to finish the final details of OHS 2007, and to do the Christmas cards.
