In Honor of 9/11

I just found this web site and think it's a great idea. In honor of all the compassion and humanity shown on 9/11 six years ago, the idea is spreading to make every 9/11 a Good Deed day. You can sign up at this site, http://mygooddeed.org/ , and make a pledge to do something for others today.

I'm going to donate some school supplies and books to a local community center/food shelf. And speaking of books, here's a great one I got in the mail yesterday from Tracey.



Thank you, Tracey!! I'm very eager to read this book! It's about a woman who rode the orphan train (which you can read about here, at Finn's blog) and ended up in a small town in Minnesota. I'm very familiar with the town where she grew up... right now I have other things I need to finish reading, but next in line, definitely, is this book, They Named Me Marjorie, written by Marjorie's granddaughter, Ann Zemke.

Live your day with love in your heart today!

How fun to have Ann's book to read...I'll be anxious to hear what you think.
