I love the month of November. I realized over the past few years I have gradually made it my month of making and doing for others. I am blessed by all I have, so why not help others?
I have had a boatload of fun:
1. Made a few baby quilts for our West Michigan Quilt Guild charity which provides quilts for little preemies at the NICU at our local hospital. Total count: 1,110. WOW, great job girls and guys on all those quilts you have made for babies!!!
2. Made a few baby doll quilts to go with dolls for the Grand Rapids Santa Claus Girls for kids in need. Our guild made and collected 440 dolls and quilts, 350 handmade hats!
3. Working on a secret gift for a friend in a bee. I can’t show you this as I will gift it in mid- December.
4. For the past seven years, I have been volunteering for Samaritan’s Purse which packs shoeboxes for kids.
I wondered why the month just flew by. Grand Rapids is the #2 most giving city in the US. A great title to have and be a part of.
I am blessed and grateful. Definitely a month to give thanks and not just on one day.
