Well, the benefit for my brother Paul is done....it was quite an experience, and it turned out wonderfully, and I'm so glad it's over! LOL I was overwhelmed by the sweetness, generosity, and willingness to "pitch in" that we ran across while planning for and having the benefit, it really gives you a renewed sense that there are really a lot of really wonderful people in this world! ....REALLY! (sorry, just having a little fun with words ;oP)
I'd like to thank my beautiful cousins Vicki, Becky, Michelle, and Linda for all that they did. I could never thank them enough for what they did, it was a thing of beauty and love and I love them forever for it.
I also received so many gifts and donations from my online friends...my family was amazed by how many "strangers" helped out (of course, I know that online friends are NOT really strangers, they are just friends that you haven't seen yet!) lol I would like to thank all of you who helped by sending something and/or shared your stories and prayers with us. It warms my heart REALLY! I'd like to send special thanks to the EtsyTwitter team, there was a lot of love that came from the gals in that group and I REALLY appreciate it!
Oh, and a HUGE thank you to Brenda Fisher and The GATINAS!!!!
Here are some of the people who helped out--please go and visit their shops and give them some love, they are wonderful people who make wonderful things!!
