Appalachian Mountain need

(graphic by
Good morning... hubby continues to improve- thanks to all who are praying for him. =) We heard from the 'First Responder' who arrived on the scene that it appears Mike dove head first and face first off his mop-ed either into the pavement or the gravel on the side of the road and not into a sign. He then, flipped head over heels (not a good thing to do at 50!) and slid. I am not sure we will ever know more. He is sleeping nicely right now as we had some good friends bring over a special wedge pillow system to pro him up comfortably in bed.

This is from a co-worker of my son who works at McGraw Hill. Her church is making a trip to the Appalachians and items are needed before Dec. 6th please.

They need gently used kids coats and shoes/boots mostly, but any warm clothes, hats, mitts, scarves etc, and gently used/new teddy bears or other toys for the kids there.

My son told her about my website and that I have lots of friends who knit and crochet who might be able to help her out. Some patterns:

Here is what she wrote to me:

Hi Bev,
As you see in the email below, we will be making the trip to the Appalachian Mountains on December 7th. If we could have some items by then that would be wonderful!

You can have them send the items to Celebration of Life Church. If they are sending them regular mail, the address is:

Celebration of Life Church
P.O. Box 460
Hendersonville, TN 37077

If they are sending it special delivery (overnight, UPS…), send it to:

Celebration of Life Church
768 Forest Retreat Road
Hendersonville, TN 37075

If they have any questions they can use my personal email address: lposto01 @ yahoo dot com.

Thank you so much! Any help is greatly appreciated.

And now-- 2 really peaceful and informative videos for you to watch.

Thanks for all you do to inform us about the needs of others.

Keep up the good work! I hope that your husband recovers fully soon.
