amazing generosity

I love this shows the caring and sharing spirit of about 60 kids (3-6th grade) involved in our Awana club at church. We started a toy drive in rememberance of a clubber who lost her battle with a brain tumor this winter. Not only did they bring toys, but boxes of kleenex for the Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland. I am so proud of the kids and their response. I am going to take a couple of kids with me as we deliver the items, it should be a truly rewarding and emotional time. Haley was such a compassionate and loveable soul. She organized her own toy drive at her school in response to her own treatments at the hospital. She truly touched so many lives and she is dearly missed. I know that Haley will have a huge smile on her face as she looks down here at us and sees the joy that she continues to share in this life. We miss you Haley!
