Final Count

I am officially done making french bread (for now at least). I made 90 loaves and yes it was in one oven in a little home kitchen. I appreciate all the help we received. There were so many generous people that helped out. I am making the donation on Sunday through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Humanitarian Department. We decided to make the donation through our church because we know that 100% of the money donated will go to Haiti. We raised almost $500! This is so much more that I could have ever expected.

My friend and I were talking about all of those here in the US that need help too. There will always be someone in need. People don't just need help at Christmas or when a natural disaster happens. This has taught me to really look around me and try to notice those that need my help here. I want to make a difference in people's lives. It makes me happy.

I am so grateful to have God in my life. I am grateful that he can lead us to those that are struggling. So when you get a feeling to help DO IT. DO IT NOW. Call someone, bake cookies and ding door ditch them, volunteer at a soup kitchen, help someone with their groceries, help someone move, write a letter to someone, bring in someone's garbage cans, babysit, go to the Temple, smile at someone, etc. See? It doesn't have to cost money or take a lot of time to brighten someone's day. DO IT.

Let's stop thinking about ourselves and start thinking of others!
