Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Heroes Helping Heroes

I have a friend who received the only thing she wanted for Christmas.  She gets to spend it with her husband.  Her husband gets to spend Christmas with his children.  After 15 long months in Iraq, he was fortunate to arrive home early Friday morning (2 am early).  They are the fortunate ones, and they know it.

Several soldiers will not get the chance to spend the holidays with their families this season, and some that will, will not be the same people that left so long ago, and there are still others who willl never come home.  I can not possibly imagine what these families go through at the Holidays and all year long, but I'd like to lend support.

Sears heroes at home wish registry offers me the opportunity to say Thank You to these families that sacrifice so much all year long.  With over 30,000 families currently registered, Sears is granting wishes for these patriotic families and giving them what they need for the Holidays.  Wishes will be granted through gift cards to purchase items on their list.  The donations are NOT tax deductible, but that didn't deter me.  The ability to give back to families that risk so much, is an honor and a priviledge.

Won't you do your part?
