The kids are sacked out in the living room surrounded by Santa’s bounty, and with a trip to Grandma’s yet to anticipate. As my Byeya used to say whenever a check came in the mail, “It’s a good day.”
I’m not tired at the moment, so I’ll conclude the previous post about the Christmas Consumers. Basically I just wanted to give more kudos to those who put the party together and to my mom in particular for her hard work. Dad is very tolerant of having their house overrun with gifts and donations that take up about 1 1/2 rooms at any given time.
It’s a huge project taking on packaging 438 gifts (that’s how many went out this year) for the consumers of MHMR services, and it’s not a sustainable project in its present form (where two people take on all of the work and storage). Mom is looking for some counsel on how to move forward from here. If any of you has any event planning or fundraising or volunteer coordination experience and could shed some light on what to do next, we’d appreciate it. We’re looking for ideas.
I hope you’re having a good day too! For your enjoyment, here’s the lost conclusion to the movie pictured above, It’s a Wonderful Life.
