Don't beat yourself up Lost Sailor... plenty of time (the rest of your life) to start to "step in" or help out ...no time to get started like tommorow...as they say its better to give than recieve.. you will feel so much better and the person or people on the receivng end of you kindest will hopefully pass it along. One day you will need help and karma works.

I just wanted to add that not only did she do that ( I am very proud of my wife).. we have spent the last few hours getting donations ready to take the mission and another bunch of things to take to the Childrens Inn at NIH. Amazing how much stuff you have that was barely ever used or brand new and is sitting around that can help others in need. Also, being that her son is now 19 I guess its was time for her to part with the mickey mouse & donald duck mirror, toys, and the sorcery LOL books (Jen sad face) . We're takin the stuff to the mission tommorow and I'll be riding with Jen to work soon to pass out the toys to the sick kids at NIH (I was in the hospital for over a month as a young child including Christmas).
Finally, we are by no means saints ( wait till ya catch our act next week
) but a little bit of time or a small amount of money to help another really makes you feel better. IF we all did this year round instead of just Christmas imagine what a better place we would all be living in. ( stepping down from soap box)
Better run & get out a here before they find out the prodigal son snuck in for a quick 1/2 a post.
Lastly one week from now we'll be in San Francisco wohoooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!
