{Giving Is Awesome – Decision Time}

Thank you for the many powerful and moving stories you sent to me.  This was truly a very hard and stressful decision.  So difficult that I couldn’t just choose one person/family to give this gift to, so I’ve selected two nominees.  Even narrowing it down to two families was painful since every nominee had such inspiring, powerful and courageous stories.  I hope to donate to some of the others at a later date.  I’m currently in communications with the selected families and want to ensure I get their permission before sharing their names and stories on my blog.  But as promised, I wanted to make a post about it this evening.  Thank you again for taking the time to participate in this important project.

Merry Christmas!  God Bless.
