Time to Get Busy!
Faces of Hope, my charity for Autism, and making arrangements to present them with a check. Thanks to several of my Muse It Up "sisters" who helped bolster my "Shortcoming" royalties for last quarter, I'll be able to donate $250.00 to help the organization with their endeavor to educate parents and aide children who need special assistance. In the big scheme of things, it's not a lot of money, but it's far more than I could have managed alone, and I'm so touched by the generosity of these women who gave because they cared. I won't name them because some wanted to remain anon and I've already blown that once, but they know who they are and how much their generosity means to me. I'm really excited, and I'll have someone take a snapshot to mark the occasion so I can share it here. I may have to wait until after the New Year, but I'll get it done. Gosh, I can't believe that 2012 is almost here. Can you?
After I call Faces of Hope, I think I'll call and make an appointment to use my gift certificate hubby gave me for Christmas. I can get a facial, manicure and pedicure, and I love them all. What a treat. Perhaps I can get them to pull a few wrinkles out of this face of hopelessness. *lol* Get it? play on words there. It was funny until I realized how true it is. I look in the mirror and wonder how my mother got there. Growing old is not for sissies.
