Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful

Dear Marilyn,

Thank you, thank you, thank you for braving the crazy weather to bring us a blanket (a blanket that looks surprisingly new I might add!) last night. I really appreciate you in every way. You and your adorable family (when did your girls turn into models btw?) made my night. My husband remarked after you all left that you seemed like a great family and we should hang out sometime. We most definitely should.

And to everyone else, thank you for keeping your families safe and staying warm at home. I will try to plan my next act of service when the weather is a titch better! Luckily, I have a freakish amount of extra blankets so we still managed to help several people stay a bit warmer.

Love,
Karen

Marilyn is a sweetheart!

I saw your post at midnight last night, otherwise I would have dropped by!I do have a bunch of adult coats and new and slightly used hats, scarves and gloves. I have been trying to figure out where to donate them. There are women's items, so I didn't know about the Union Gospel mission, because I thought that was just for men. Anyone know?

Karen,
I'm always amazed at the thoughtful things you do. You teach your children so many great lessons and you're a great example to all of us.

I'm just sorry I saw your post a day late. We would have loved to join in on the fun.

Karen, it was OUR pleasure actually. And we would love to hang out sometime.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to teach our children how to look outside of themselves and do something for someone else.

YOU are a great example to me.

Marilyn really is that wonderful!

I'm sorry we weren't able to join you. I'll have to call you and tell you about my evening ;)
