And the Total is...

Ok ladies! I know you are all just on the edges of your seats waiting to hear about how much money we raised, so I will end the suspense. ;) We had a pretty good turnout, but you can definitely tell that high school kids don't have jobs and that those who do are clinging to their money for fear that this recession will get worse... That part is the part that is really making me sad right now.

We made $232.00!!!! I am so excited that people liked our bracelets enough to buy them. It is such a good feeling to make something with your own two hands and watch people as they actually enjoy it.

Anyway, like I said, I am a little sad that people have to hold so tightly to their money right now that they cannot even look out for their fellow man....WO-man. We have 72 bracelets left, and that is an excellent amount to do another sale. If we don't actually sell them ourselves, we will be donating them to a friend's Relay for Life team to sell for their funds. Either way, it is all going to the same cause. I am so glad to be apart of it, and that smile I was talking about earlier, the one that is bigger than you could ever imagine, I feel my mom smiling that at me right now.

I am crying but that is because I can feel her all around me right now. I feel her warm hugs and see her sparkling brown eyes as she smiles proudly at me....Oh goodness! I am listening to my personalized radio station on Yahoo!, and a song by Seal just came on. My mom loved Seal. Weird...I love you too, Mommy! I miss you, and I will do whatever I can to make you proud.

Goodnight, all!


  1. i would like to buy one or two...and you r right she is smiling down on you and your family...

  2. I was up talking to Marcia until 11 last night! I was awake until 12:30! I am dragging today, but I could not wind down! I was sooooo worried about the way it would feel to be there last night. I was very anxiety stricken, but that ended fairly soon after getting to the school. I am very thankful that we were able to do something that will help someone someday.

  3. GREAT JOB YA ALL!!!!!!!I am sure your Mom is VERY VERY PROUD OF YOU!!!
