But, let get back on topic, shall we? Support, we all need it. Humans, all living creatures, the environment, and lets face it, even inanimate objects need support. Ever hear of support beams? There are so many ways to support someone or something that the list is absolutely endless. My Pillows for HAVEN project came to my mind just because I saw my own kids hugging their pillows. Plus, I really like to hug my pillow at night even though it has to be the worst pillow in the entire world. So, I figured, why not try to make pillows for kids at the HAVEN shelter. I am never going to meet one of the kids who gets one of my pillows. I will probably never get a thank you. But it does not matter, not even a little. I think of the teachers, co-workers, family, and friends who have been there for me through some pretty dark times. We should help others for the sake of helping others. We should help others because at sometime in our lives someone helped us out and did not want a single thing in return. At Christmas, my church always asks members to sign up to bring in gifts for needy families. I never seem to get to the sign up sheet in time - again, lack of attention to details. But, I am going to help twelve kids right now. And, I did not do this project on my own. My mom, Kathy Christopher donated money. My friend, April Mrosewske donated batting. My husband ran out to get more batting when I ran out. Mimi stuffed the pillows and handed me pins. It was a team project and I appreciate each contribution.
