updating my Mom!!!

Well can you believe how many elves there are on HGTV, well let me tell you!!
over 130 at the very least. That is how many ladies have asked for my Moms address.
So far she has received over 35 envelopes and a few boxes of goodies for quilting.
She is loving it!! I asked her today what she was doing, and she said "Waiting for the Mailman!!" lol
She sounds just like her old self, and is putting up her tree, and planning on what layout for her new quilt is going to be. She is saving the Christmas fabric, and wants me to make her a mini with it. I am of course going to start that as soon as she picks the fabrics she wants in it.
You know it is funny how a little envelope with a 12.5 inch piece of fabric can change a persons outlook on life. She still has all the daily issues to deal with, but now she has something to look forward too, and the most important thing::::she is not alone, and that is what Kathy and I wanted her to get out of this. Never did we imagine how many people would want to spread a little cheer.
SO, if you are one of those elves, Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
And if you aren`t, Thank you too, for reading this, and maybe you know someone who just needs reminded, that they are not alone.
After all, it is the season. :)

Tammy, Isn't it wonderful that such a small act of kindness can do so much. I'm glad I could be a part of that. I love reading your post about how excited your mother gets waiting on the postman. Then, to read that her dream or educating others about the horrible disease(Huntingstons) is coming true because of this is just amazing. I wish you and your family the very best this holiday season.

Tammy, this is my first visit to your blog...came over from Donna's.... but I want you to know that your family's story has touched me deeply. The loss of your father and the challenges that face your brother and sister and the effect and toll this takes on your life and your mother's life is just heart breaking. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
