The cat that swallowed...

not only the canary, but all of the Halloween Candy too!

Indulgent Sugar high, caloric tremors,

pre-tummy ache for sure;

that's why he looks SO content

and is the new poster kitty for:

Last week the Pixie Cottage and Sienna

teamed up to bring you

SIENNA’s Benefit Autism STAMPS

for more on Sienna .

THANK YOU for supporting their cause

and for sharing this information with everyone you know!!!

A few weeks ago we attended Open House. I documented our evening to share with Daddy. When my eyes fell upon the HERO portion of Sienna's poster my heart skipped a beat.

I couldn't wait to get home and email Miss Michelle...

WOW. It just amazes me how God puts particular people in our life and how a little bit thoughtfulness and kindness can blossom into something more than we ever could have imagined on our own.

If you've read the blog posts with Sienna's letter explaining her choice of benefit. You know that she had to spend 2 weeks in National Jewish Hospital in Denver. We were blessed to have insurance, but only the first 2 nights were required hospital stays, the additional 12 nights you were on your own. A friend of mine, Miss Debbie, that I met attending weekend crops, has a sister, Miss Gayla, that lives in Denver. Miss Gayla, opened her heart and home to Sean and Sienna. Giving a scared child a sense of comfort and normalcy. Because of her thoughtfulness Sienna was able to meet STAR.

(I emailed Miss Gayla about SIENNA’s Benefit Autism STAMPS)

she wrote back:


How can all the children you will help ever thank you. I have sent your link to many people this evening and will continue to send it on. Angel and Star are here this evening when I got your message and we all have a tear of joy and thanks in our hearts and eyes. Because of people like you children all over the world will get better. They will learn to talk, to walk, to sing, and most of all to draw. You all by your self are changing the world. YOU are my hero.

Thank you Gayla

Who is your HERO?

Who has God put in your path

and what wonderful things

does he have up his creative sleeve in store for you?
