Yesterday he told me about this "new and different thing" he just tried. He met with a career coach! "I think it would be good to have someone really help me get some focus and clarity for myself and a career. In looking over my career, I don't think I ever really picked what I wanted to do, opportunities came-up and out of obligation I took them."
I just smiled and told him what good news it was.
Just sent a box of 5 paperback books and some notepads to our soldiers serving in Afghanistan. I wanted to make sure the people at Operation Shoebox have enough time to receive them, put them in holiday stockings, and get them overseas in time for Christmas.
It's a wonderful feeling, helping the young people who so bravely serve. You can help, too! From their homepage:
Currently we are in desperate need of travel sized hygiene products for the troops. If you have any you would like to donate, please send it to us at: Operation Shoebox, 8360 E. Highway 25, Belleview FL 34420. Thank You!
I promise you: your day will be brighter and your holidays will be happier if you pitch in.
