January 2016 Newsletter

 You see that list above. That’s my list for the next 31 days, maybe 54 days. I have been living in this home for 8 years now and feel like it is a good time to tackle that list. Dexter is at the age where I can let go of all the baby toys he no longer finds entertaining, although that real estate has been replaced with dinosaurs.  Maxwell, my 10 year old, has requested his own room. So what better way to purge a room when you have to clear it out. But now I’m one room short of storage.  My closet needs a major overhaul. Yep, finally letting go of my prom dress…maybe. Ok, this might be harder then I have anticipated. So who’s in it with me? I would love to hear your ideas and tips if you have personally been through this process.  Or if you can just hand me that magic wand, that would make everything much easier.

Let’s hope you never see me on TLC’s Hoarding: Buried Alive,

By now the media frenzy of the tornado that hit Rowlett and Garland has died down, but that doesn’t mean the needs of the community went away. CECPTA will be sponsoring a single mother of five who is currently still in the hospital with multiple broken bones and is just now able to start moving around a bit.  It is my understanding the mother used her body to protect the smaller children. She had her 5 children living with her in a trailer they had recently managed to buy outright.  They had previously been moving around often and renting.

The childrens’ names and ages are:
Vanessa 26 and her husband
Cindy 22
Stephen 14
Victoria 10
Erin 4
The children sustained multiple injuries, including a broken pelvis, a broken collar bone and another was in a coma for 2 days.
They are in the most need of clothing and gas cards.  The gas cards are for the older children to support the family through their jobs.

From the Character and Spiritual Budget, the family will receive a monetary donation.
I am asking everyone to donate whatever they can and in any capacity. You can bring non perishable food items and gently used clothing to the meeting tomorrow or drop off directly at Becky’s home, 1029 Alyssa Lane, Carrollton, Texas 75006.  Any monetary donations will be collected tomorrow at the meeting.
