    As a mother of a child who is sponsored by Starlight Children’s Foundation I want to tell you thank you, and your family, so much for not only acting on this but writing about it. All the families we have met over the years from Starlight have been appreciative and thankful. The organization has seriously changed my daughter’s life.

    You rock so much.

      Thank you Leila! I didn’t realize you we’re sponsored by Starlight. They really are a wonderful group. I’m so happy to be able to do this!

        My daughter is part of their great escapes and day brighteners day. They seriously go all out to make all the kids feel like rock stars. We have been to so many wonderful events and each time I leave with happy tears… and it takes a lot for me to cry!!

    Beautiful post! I do a lot of volunteer work for Postpartum Support International, Lamaze, and for PATTCh (Prevention & Tx of Traumatic Childbirth) and am stretched thin. But my husband and I always give to two of my favoriate local child & adolescent charities at the end of the year.

    It can be so easy to get bogged down by the negative (like you said)… I am thankful that when I get “bogged down” I have my family to lift me up.


  1. […] Behave in the spirit of the season. Smile. Be extra nice to people. Give compliments. Make others feel good and you’ll feel good too. If you can, you might even try volunteering, or doing something special for someone in need. @b303tilly volunteered at a soup kitchen on Christmas Eve last year and said it was awesome! My family is “adopting” a Starlight Children’s Foundation family to buy holiday gifts for the holidays. Info is here is you’d like to do the same.  […]
