Because I Have Been Given Much....

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves.

-James M. Barrie

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
-Mohandas K. Gandhi

I have been blessed with this sunshine and I have loved finding myself in service with
2 amazing opportunities these past couple of months!

It's incredible to see what can be accomplished with hundreds of hearts
in the right place and willing to touch the lives of those in need. The CRAZY generosity of amazing friends, family, and complete strangers is absolutely overwhelming and makes me very emotional just thinking about it. It's so good for me to be reminded of the blessings I have. The blessings I take for granted on a daily basis.

Humbling. Inspiring. Miraculous.

I was privileged to be asked to help with the silent auction portion of the Nie Nie Benefit Concert and Silent Auction for my friend Stephanie Neilson
It was a HUGE success and I felt honored to be a part of the night!

Then, my brilliant friend Laura had the idea to turn a swap party into a giant fund raiser for Mother's without Borders and threw this uber fun "Love Swap"! Another HUGE success!

I'm so grateful for these wonderful experiences and
will hold them close to my heart forever!

You're a great friend to give so much of your time and effort to help out two great causes! A good example of the kind of person I'd like to be! :)

You are such a giving and generous person, and always have been. I'm glad I was able to attend the silent auction/concert. Lives are better because of you.
