Make a difference for the Armstrongs

I am only one,
but I am one.
I cannot do everything,
but I can do something.
And I will not let what I cannot do
interfere with what I can do.
~Edward Everett Hale

I am but a small blog--
read by a few-
written mostly to entertain me
and to give me a place to record my life.

I started reading blogs in the fall last year
after i heard about the Armstrong Family-
I was hooked--
i was amazed at the strength of this family
to get up each day
and deal with the adversity they had been given.
It made me appreciate my life
to value each day
It has made me a better person
and through all of this
I have gained a dear friend in LYNN.
She has been carrying this family
through it's trials---
They have been blessed with people
who love them...
they are in need of a home
that can accommodate Tracy
and his new circumstances.
Currently he is living in the garage
that was made over by dear friends and loved ones
but he cannot get into the rest of the house--
to be united as a family.

If you have a moment
pop on over to their blog
see the kind of family they are for yourself
and then take the time to send a note to
Extreme Home Makeover

Remember the squeaky wheel
gets the grease
One person can make a difference.....

We can do no great things,
only small things with great love.
~Mother Teresa

I need a favor from everyone.
Luckily someone at Extreme Home Makeover has received one of the applications submitted for The Armstrong Family. I know many people have submitted their name, but I truly believe it is about getting the application into the right hands at the right time. One of the casting directors from Extreme Home Makeover has contacted Lynn for more information. Here is my plea to you . . .
let's flood their email with requests
for the Armstrong Family.

You can go to the EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER website
and submit their name
or send an email to Jada Bates at .
Put LYNN & TRACY ARMSTRONG FAMILY in your subject line and email away.
Let's get Lynn and Tracy
a new house where they can live
as a family again.

And if you feel so inclined add this to your blog--we can all reach out to others and perhaps make a difference in the process!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I was in the Daisy group. We had such an awesome time. We were all newbies to the CREATIVE ESCAPE experience. I had done CKU many times, but this was WAY better than those. We are hoping to have the opportunity to go away in 2009.

Oh aren't you a sweetheart? Thank you so much for the great little blurb about our family. You are way too kind. The best thing is that you are the one, who has been an inspiration and great friend to me. You have helped me on hard days, to find purpose in my trials. Even though we have not even met, I feel a great bond with you. You are one of the most sincere and kind people I know. Thanks for all you do for me, and for the example you are. The lady from home makeover did ask me NOT to send a bunch of mail, and that is NOT how it works. But...oh well, right. We tried anyways.
Thanks for all of your efforts in our behalf.
Love ya,
