What are YOU thankful for?

Here is a list of 5 things that I am thankful for:
-I have a wonderful family and I love them very much.
-The weather was beautiful today.
-I have a wonderful relationship with God.
-I have wonderful friends.
-I can walk, speak, see, hear, feel and breathe.

I also have an update on the Johnson* family.  So far, Midnight Snack Baking Co. and I have managed to raise about $45.00 for them.  They are so grateful for everything.  I am hoping that for the Holidays we can raise enough money to help them with some of their bills and, help get their kids a few things for Christmas so that they will have a little something to open on Christmas morning.

Have a blessed evening!

How YOU can brighten up someone's Thanksgiving

1. Be selfless.  Do something kind and considerate for a family in need.  In this economy there are so many families who don't have enough money for food.  A lot of these families are losing their homes and in desperate need of help.  Do something to help them.  Even bringing a warm meal to a family in need is a welcoming, heart-warming surprise. 

2. Volunteer your Thanksgiving morning to go and help out at a local shelter, pass out food to families in need, or even help out at your local food pantry. 

3. Think about how you'd feel on the other side of the 'road'.  If YOUR family was that family in need, think about how that would feel.  You would do anything to make sure your family still had shelter and food.  So help out another family who is reaching out for help.

4. Donate to your local food pantry.  A lot of times, (especially around the holidays), food pantries run low on food...send flyers around the neighborhood and do a neighborhood collection for your local food pantry.

5. If you can't donate any time, and you have money to spare...there are plenty of shelters, churches, and other places that help families and could really use donations to keep that help going.

Beautiful Bible Verse

Hebrews 13:5-6

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”

Who is the Thanksgiving Angel?

I am known as the Thanksgiving Angel.  I am here (especially around the Holidays) to try and help families in need.  I work with different people, shops, etc. to try and raise money to help these families.  I try to keep all family names annonymous (unless they volunteer to have their names used).  Currently I am trying to help the Johnson* family.  They are a family of 8.  Here's who they are:

Brad* is the father
Julie* is the mother
Tom* is the oldest son
Tammy* and Stephanie* are the twin sisters
George* is the middle son
Frank* is the younger son
Tabitha* is the youngest

The kid's ages range from 19 years old-2 years old.  Brad is a stay at home dad due to an injury at work last year.  Julie was working for a networking company.  With Brad not being able to work, and Julie the only one bringing in money...the family was struggling.  Julie only made $55,000.  Julie then got laid off from her job in August.  The family has been struggling to make ends meat and now are behind on all their bills.  Their house is also going into foreclosure.  Julie is looking for other jobs, but in this economy she is having a very hard time.  They don't get much food in the house since living off of unemployment.  Since I am the Thanksgiving Angel, I am trying to help this family out.  I am seeking donations for this family.  Right now, I am now working with one shop on etsy called "Midnight Snack Baking Co.".  The owner of this shop is willing to give 1/2 the money from her purchases to this family.  To see more of her shop, follow this link:

Julie and Brad are so grateful for anything that anyone can do.  Thanksgiving is only 20 days away...and Julie and Brad want to be able to give their kids a nice family holiday.  So let's help them out!  For more information, email me at:

Thank you so much and have a Blessed Day!
