Default and then you Have Very Special People

There are so many good people in the world, but then you have people that go out of their way to do something nice for others.

The person I want to salute is Linda Pearl, or better known as Trip.

I received an e-mail from Hubby today. He received his box from Trip, and in it was all these letters from a third grade in Trips area. As soon as he showed it to all the troops, he said they were so excited. Deciding who was going to be pen pals with which child. Laughing at some of the things they said, and yes crying over being remembered for this holiday season. No one asked Trip to do this. She came up with it, and took the time to collect what she needed.

You know, sometimes we go about our every day lives, and just exist. Then there are times we can really make a difference.

Thank you Linda!!!!

Hi Luanne,
Boy that got there fast! It was my pleasure to do this, and I am so glad to hear Jim's buddys enjoyed the cards. They indeed made you laugh, and shed a tear. I hope this will be the last holiday they are away from home.

Trip, with her book & tea!

What a wonderful idea, and I'm a so not surprised to hear that Linda came up with it. She has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know.

I've never met Linda, but I can say with a certainty that it doesn't surprise me! At least online, she seems like a genuinely wonderful person.

Glad Jim and his buddies enjoyed it and hope they are ALL home soon.
