I am Amazed...


I have been wanting to tell all of you just how amazed I am by this whole Starfish experience. When I started thinking about doing this, I thought that maybe 12-15 families would join in. As of today there are 41. I have received e-mails and comments from so many people who want to help. Many of which are not regular visitors to my blog. The boxes just keep coming and I love opening each one. Your cards and notes are very inspiring to me. Thank you so much. I'm going to do a post of packing day so that you can see all of the donations that have come in. Our bedroom is filled with donations! I cannot get to the bottom four drawers of my dresser, it is blocked by all of the children's clothing waiting to go to China.
Whenever I have been involved in anything through this blog or others and someone is in need, you always rise to the occasion and get them what they need. With Starfish, I thought we could gather some needed winter items and get them over there to help with the storm relief. Now because of the response, I think we will be able to provide them with enough clothing to carry them through next year.
I have never seen such caring and generosity.

Kimberly this is God's work. He commanded us to take care of each other , and this is the perfect example! It is also the perfect example of people that are so very thankful for the blessings that they receive everyday, that they know in their hearts they must give back. I can only think of one word to describe it.....BEAUTIFUL!!!

And Kimberly you are a good person. We all know we don't get to Heaven by the good deeds we do, but what you have started here is "good", and God knows your heart , and I know that you have made him very happy. I just know he is smiling down on you this very minute.

Love, Kristy
