This group is about helping others.And others helping us. Where we share our kindness with others. This is a Dog eat Dog world but we all need the help of others. So lets all be here for each other. Just a smile or a kind word can make a differance. Thank you Bob for helping me with this.Let us remember that God is with us every step of the way.

Andy has been walking around the house humming Christmas tunes, talking about cooking up pots of warming soups & stews, and burning piles of fallen, dry leaves for a few days, already. So, this brings to mind our Annual Secret JAP Santa Name Drawing. There is a $20 limit and a few gift ideas might include – oven mitts, dish towels, spoon rests, home or store bought Christmas goodies and/or handmade craft items.

For all wishing to participate in this fun event, please PM Zelda or Renee sometime during the month of August with the below requested information. You have my word that NO ONE’s personal information will be posted or shared EVER. If you have any questions or concerns about this...please PM me and we’ll talk about the more stringent measures which can be taken to maintain your privacy.

We will put all the names into Santa’s hat and draw them out at random – remembering that the key word is SECRET Santa. From past experience, I can tell you that after receiving a gift from a secret group member, you will forever feel a special kinship and bond with that person. Of course, once the gift is received – it won’t be a secret any longer, will it?

We will need to know your wish to participate and your info by the end of August. You will be notified of your gift recipient in September so you will have sufficient time to find just that perfect little item. Gifts will need to be mailed by the week prior to Thanksgiving in order that we might be sure everything reaches its destination well before the stockings are hung.

This is the information we will need:

Your Name ____________________________________________

Your Mailing Address ____________________________________

Do you have any food allergies, if so - what? ________________

Do you have a favorite food? Favorite Candy? Favorite Christmas Cookie? Favorite music? Favorite time of day? Favorite holiday scent? Please share as much or as little as you like.

Remember the Lattice Pastry cutter from Amazon??

I just wanted to tell everyone who is interested that I received the package yesterday. If you want to know about it, just let me know. I cannot remember which discussion it was in or who was interested in it.

Hi Zelda,
I haven't been on here much lately. What you wrote is so true. Making the present
happier will also make the future happier. I am struggling so hard with depression
while being overwhelmed with everything. I pray everyday that all this turmoil in
our lives with somehow lessen in the days ahead. I know it will get better, I never
lose my faith.
