So? What happened?

Well it hit me today, I have been a bit remiss. Last month, in the post His Heart Grew 3 Sizes that day I told you the story of Michelle finding a tag on our offices giving tree from a 17-year-old boy. All he asked for was a bike…

Michelle launched our personal fundraising plan that day by hitting up people we knew at work. I in turn hit Facebook as well as all the riders I knew here. The first day we had $300 in pledges.

I am remiss because I never told yall what happened!  Continue reading “So? What happened?”

Best Books for Kids EVER, written by Renee Hazen

Folks there are two things about me when it comes to Christmas shopping.  One, I hate shopping in stores, so I use the online option.  Amazon has become my friend!  Second, being the reader that I am, I like to share books whenever possible, especially with kids.

I am VERY lucky that a great friend of mine, Renee, has written some of the best kidlet books I’ve ever seen.  I wanted to share these with you today as we all start shopping!

“So this is Christmas” Jim Devitt

(This is a reprint of a blog post from last year, but with holiday shopping going on, and Thanksgiving a week away, it is NOW ok to start getting a new Christmas book for the family!)

I’ve mentioned in the past that I am an avid reader.  I’ve been reading damn near every day since at least the 4th grade, and maybe even before.  Getting a book for my birthday or Christmas was the perfect gift.  What else could you get, for the price of a movie, that gives you many many hours of fun.

Nowadays, I carry my iPad or my Kindle everywhere I go, and I read whenever I get the chance.  I usually have 2 or 3 books going at anyone time.

When asked for gift ideas for people, one of the first things I think of is a book!  Those who can write and get a book published are to be admired.  Which is why I am excited to do this post.  One of my oldest friends, Jim Devitt,  has written  a book that would be perfect for the holidays!

I am lucky enough to have read it and  I can share them with you! Continue reading ““So this is Christmas” Jim Devitt”
