    It has truly been an amazing and inspirational ride over the last few days. And from one minion to another I know that I dont have to sell you on the virtues of all that has happened. You were there too. I’m from Australia so the time zone is off by quite a few hours. Throughout this epic event I have been going to bed late and getting up very early so I could see as much of this unfold in real time as I possibly can. Totally worth it.

    Really glad that you wrote this Ode to The Bloggess. I bet that she will be thrilled to read it.
    Have a great Christmass.

    1. :) I love when I come across people who understand what I’m talking about. Luckily, there’s the Bloggess and I feel like understanding her awesome is pretty easy- or at least it should be. This is certainly a Christmas that I’ll remember- I like you had to keep going back to read updates. And thank you for sharing that Washington Press link-How crazy was that? Unbelievably wonderful and crazy.
      Have a great Christmas too!

  2. I’m prepping your post for tomorrow so I thought I’d pop in and say hi, then you go and make me cry again! My family received help thanks to the Blogess and I am so very grateful.

    1. I’m so happy that you were helped- you really really deserve it! I have a lot of respect for moms like you that may struggle but still keep their head up and keep trucking on. I know you’re going to school now and that, that is going to impact their lives for the better too. Remember that if it ever seems overwhelming. (And thank you again for sharing me with your readers)

    1. I’m so happy you came by-and thank you so much! :) Even if this is short lived, I’m pretty siked to even have been mentioned at all. The story just really touched me. Happy Holidays to you too!

    So cool I just saw your blog posted in the Washington Post and clicked over here from it. The Blogess does rock and I agree that is a very cool sounding blog name. The gift card idea was amazing. So awesome that she gave back and all her readers did too.

    I think you summed it up perfectly as far as it feeling like Christmas now. Unselfish giving is truly remarkable and reminds everyone what the holiday is all about.

    1. I’m still a little overwhelmed by the mention to be honest. You’re right, it’s easy to forget what makes Christmas Christmas sometimes-but seeing things like this happen, it just restores your faith in the goodness of people.

  5. I have to say, every time I come to here there is another
    remarkable post to read. A friend of mine was talking to me about
    this topic several weeks ago, so I think I’ll e-mail them the link
    here and see what they say.
