Thankful Thursday: July 28, 2011

Now that CHA is over, we're back with the regular Thankful Thursday reports - thanks to all of you for being so patient waiting for Sandy to get back. Check out the rack of mail she picked up at the Post Office - the clerk at the front just said, "How about backing up to the loading dock today?" Uhm. That was a little scary to think about that much mail!

Fortunately the west coasters were kind - only a small number of cards needed tucked, and a handful needing stamped! Wooohoo! That made for a much faster evening of sorting over 5000 cards. Thank you!

CHA was an incredible experience, and may be the tickmark on a chart of growth that we'll see later. Tune in to the show to hear some stories, if you missed out on the CHA vlogs posted from the show. There are a number of deals in the making that can't be shared til they're firmed up, but WOW!

Also - bigggggg announcement coming up on tonight's show as well, so you'll want to tune in and to be the first to hear about it! Hint: Sandy's going on a diet starting today!

Two weeks of Thankfulness to catch up - wowsers! What a list of generous and creative folks we have for you today! Bless you all!

Woo Hoo go West Coasters :)

One small correction the 2 boxes containing 617 total came from the MemoryWorks Retreat 2011 Attendees... I only planted the seed of OWH and the generostiy of Amber and Kevin Crowell (who are MemoryWorks) for allowing me a platform and space for supplies etc as well as all who attended (roughly 100 plus staff) it not only sprouted but flourished!

Then when I got home and was overwhelmed with the volume to stamp, tuck and sort the Ladies of the Idaho Card Cadets came to my rescue and spent an entire Friday helping me. I am blessed to have such awesome people to call friends...
