As you can see I have been really busy making things for the Cancer Aid Bingo which is in 2 weeks. I still have 2 things to finish, then next week, bake some cakes and cupcakes. I have already brought 4 boxes of things for the raffle tables and I am feeling really good about doing this. I have been doing this for 3 years now and every time the Ladies Auxillary has a Cancer Aid bingo, they know they can count on my---patting myself on the back. It's hard to be humble when you give so much and the ladies who belong to the auxillary don't really do anything, but come to the bingo. Guess that is better than not doing anything. I want to join, but Al didn't serve overseas, but I could join under my brother, but that is going to take some doing. I have to have his DD214 in order to join the VFW. I can join the Amercian Legion Auxillary, but I would prefer to belong to the group whose spouses have and are fighting overseas. As I posted earlier, I take pride in supporting the men,women,and their families and it makes my heart feel good. I was really joking about patting myself on the back. I really am a humble person, but no one is here to see me blush, so I am fine with joking about it. The ladies are so thankful and we also donated a queen size quilt that my mom started. It's a patriotic quilt and another lady finished it for me, so they will sell chances for that. My mom was a great giver and she made 85 lap quilts for the new VA retirement home in Jennings and has always given a lot for the bingos. When 911 happened,my mom sold over 2,000 pins to support our country and raised over $2,000. I have my mom's certificate of gratitude they gave her when she did this. She went to a lot of the events, so I'm not really sure she was a member or not.
Today, do a random act of kindness to someone you meet on the street or store---a smile is the best gift you can give someone. Love and hugs, Pat
God gave me a little talent, so I try to use it the way He would want me to. I don't have a car, so this is my way of volunteering and doing community service.
