(Arizona City, AZ)
Today Bonnie and I went shopping …..again.
I had my little Angel Tree boy to finish up and I now had a 10 year old to buy for. A Quail Run resident who isn't in the park yet sent me a check for $100.00 to help out when I put the request out for help. Well, the residents are being so generous, over $500.00 so far, that I went to the Angel Tree to pick one of the slips that was still hanging. The boy needed clothes as he had just gone up a size and there was no money for new clothes. His mom wrote that he is a good boy and never asks for anything. So I used my 30% off at Kohl’s and bought things on sale and was able to get him 3 pairs of pants, 4 shirts, sneakers and socks. I think every kids needs some fun gifts at Christmas so I got him Yahtzee, Sorry, Uno card game and another one that I forget the name of right now. I hope he’ll be a happy boy on Christmas morning.
Our tree is starting to fill as the residents do their shopping and get their purchases wrapped.
I spent part of the afternoon wrapping gifts for our kids and grandkids. I only got a few done as I was getting interrupted, in a most delightful way, by people dropping by to give money for the family in need. The envelope is getting very thick!
