January 10 Club Project

January Service Club project
Our little Service Club always has so much fun when we meet to work on our projects.  This month when we got together we worked fast and furious and still had time to mingle and laugh and catch up on each other's lives.

We cut encouraging saying strips and

 filled cute Valentine jars

We cut borders on fleece fabric

 Then we tied the edges to make the blankets



We wrote encouraging letters.  When we were finished in our two hour time frame

we had made 8 blankets,

filled 30 jars with 70 encouraging thoughts each, and had written 21 letters of hope for an organization that helps substance abuse women and their children.  Last week when we delivered these items to the home we were made aware of the great need of so many there when we talked to the director of the center.  What wonderful work is done there and lives changed forever for the better.  I am grateful there are resources available and compassionate people who work so hard to make a difference to so many.  In our daily ordinary life we live and take so much for granted.  I am resolved to be grateful for all that I have and the life that I am living with it's challenges and opportunities.
