Thankful Thursday: August 19, 2010

This Thursday....we have to say a special thank you. Not to a someone, because she didn't want recognition. But you all should know there's a crafter who sent gorgeous cards to a couple of our shippers, and simply called herself "An Honored American." How touching! This is one of her beautiful cards, and though she didn't want recognition, her heart represents that of so many of our OWH family.

*big smile*

Now, on to the report for the week...thank you everyone for your amazing creativity and donations shared with us for our heroes....our work continues day after day, week after week, month after month - because of you!
