I just called my Navy Man with some good news...his federal tax refund is here. Well, he had good news for me, too. He is volunteering and working with Habitat For Humanity! As a Mom I feel that I did not instill enough of a sence of community in my children. Health and lack-of-car kept me from volunteering and setting the example I would have preferred that my children had seen. Lemme tell you...him doing this just warms the cockles-of-my-sweet-lil-ole-pea-pickin-heart! It also made my eyes tear up.
As a low income family, we recieved a lot of assistance from our local community and I am thrilled that my Navy Man is paying-it-forward!
Mike just gave this award to my son! This is what Mike had to say:
That is really nice for your Navy Man to do; my hat's off to him. I have a big Bear hug award on my site. I'd like you to come and get it and send it to him with my thanks for A) Serving our country, B) for giving some of his time for Habitat for Humanity! Pay-it-forward is such a grand idea and even grander when put into practice.
Thank you so very much Mike! I will email him the link to this post.
