Wake Up Wednesday

It's Wednesday!  Yay!  (I thought we needed a logo for it, so I made one.)  Last week's challenge was to report a job well done.  I found an email address for customer service at Waste Management so I could write a thank you to them regarding our awesome garbageman.  Hopefully it will be passed onto him, but if not we have other plans to say thank you to him.

This week's challenge is.... 
a very specific one.  You see, there is a small group of little girls in Kansas and they are trying hard to to good things.  Kayla is one of them.

She and her Brownie troop decided that they wanted to collect gloves for those in need.  They have a goal to collect 300 pairs.  They are collecting all types and sizes.  They can be new or gently used.  Her mother said this is a great time to buy gloves because they are on clearance.

So this week's challenge is to send some gloves to their troop.  They have had some trouble getting their project off the ground.  I think it would be pretty awesome to help them out. Wouldn't it be fun to help them see the power they have and the good they can do?  Just check for some gloves at the store you're in or see if you have any your children have outgrown.  It's a little thing, but I think it could make a big difference.  Here's the address to send them to:

Good For Gloves
PO Box 23
Mulvane, KS 67110

(And if you have questions you can shoot an email to

So, did anyone get a chance to report a job well done?  I'd love to hear about your experience.  These are always my most favorite comments to read.  Thanks for being here.

What a great idea. You are so sweet.
Last week, I tried to give my kids more positive compliments about what they did. Boosting their self esteem makes them want to try harder things too.

Awesome!n I just cleaned out my garage and found a TON of old gloves! They're in the box to be donated, so I'll take them out and mail them. So glad this came at the right time! Thanks Cheri!

I am sure my kids have some gloves they have outgrown somewhere. I would love to brighten this troop's day!

Yesterday I grabbed a burger from Wendy's and the gentleman at the order window was particularly pleasant and entertaining. He seemed to really enjoy his work (or at least pretended really well!) He just made me laugh! I gave him a $1 tip on a $2 order for making me smile and he was very pleasantly surprised! I emailed a comment to the store via the Wendy's website so hopefully his manager gets it.

I teach Primary and I'll be the first to admit that it isn't the dream calling. I love the kids and it's great, but I feel like I do the whole "teaching kids things" all week long and now they just took away my only 2 hours or adult-geared learning and lessons for the week. Don't get me wrong, I feel like I do a great job; it's just a calling I wouldn't have picked. Anyhow, I made a big deal this past week to report to the kids' parents how well their kids were during Primary in front of the kids. I want the kids to know I am noticing and that I care. So thanks for the push to get'er done. I think it went well!

I love this glove one. I love chances for my kids to serve and be involved. My oldest will love going to store and then mailing her special package to other little girls!

Two weeks ago I had my first baby, and I was in labor for 30 hours. We had a few scary moments, and I had some amazing nurses that really made the difference. In our hospital, they have cards that you can fill out to help recognize the staff members. We were way too busy to fill them out while staying at the hospital, so I filled them out yesterday and made the trip to the hospital to make sure the nurses got them. I felt so much better knowing that they will get a thank you, because what they did for us kept me and my baby safe! :)

Cheri - thanks so much for posting Kayla's project! The girls in the troop (Brooklyn, Makenna, Rylie, Tess, Ayla, Payten, Alexis, Amber, Emma, April, Ali) will be so excited to receive the packages!! I'll keep you posted and let you know when they hit their goal of 300 pairs of gloves. :) Erin
