I was thrilled that Martha showed up, and that we got a chance to spend more time getting to know each other. I am sad that she didn't get a chance to meet anyone else in the group. I know that by reading about our group meetings and all that we have accomplished in such a short time, that she was not expecting to be the only one to show up for two months in a row. I am happy to say that she is committed to making a blanket a month, and she and I agree that it isn't a hard commitment to meet. After making a couple of them, you can finish one in 2-3 hours, especially with the fringe tie. She also has a great commitment to Star of Hope, because they provide a great service to the community, and because her son is working on his Eagle Scout project there.
I hope that most of the people on our mailing list decide to help with at least 2 blankets this year or the donation of material to make two blankets. If they could have seen the faces of the people at Star of Hope, I think there would be no question that they would contribute. I know how busy everyone is. I have a busy life too. I just feel that life is about making a difference and we are so fortunate to have the lives that we have. Surely we can help others less fortunate. If not, what does that say about our society and our future?
Oh well, it is time to go to bed. I will wake up in the morning hoping that I hear positive results from the letter that was sent out today. Then on to my next venture--contacting businesses for support and a mention on our sponsor page. It truly is all for a very worthwhile cause. I don't think that anyone that truly knows me would say that I give up easily, so the project will continue and continue to grow.
