Out of tragedy comes togetherness

Last week some good friends of ours lost their house and pets to an electrical fire.  It was very surreal for us so I cannot even imagine how it was/is for them.  My sister-in-law and another friend quickly organized a Spagetti Dinner Donation Party for the family (I mean quickly as in 24 hours).  I was asked to make the donation box and I offered to bring desserts.  I am not sure how much money/gift/cards/donations came out of it but just from what I saw from our group of friends it was a lot and I know it meant a lot to the family that their friends were there supporting them through this tough time.  So it made me think of a couple of things: count your blessings and remember that it is not the materials in our life that matter.  Here is a picture of the donation box.  I wrapped a box in plain (as plain as I could find) wrapping paper.  I then used my Gypsy to weld the letters together from Opposites Attract and used the arrow from Gypsy Wanderings.  You cannot see it but I made a hole in the top of the box and put donations under the hole also.  TFL.
