Today I got to see a bunch of friends that I haven't seen since before I deployed. I headed to Lexington Park for a crop that my friend, Kristie, organizes. It's a crop that raises money for phone cards and care packages to send to deployed troops. It's a pretty awesome organization that Kristie and her friend, Julie, co-founded and it really makes a difference. Visit their website, www.scrappingforsoldiers.com and check it out. They have raised an amazing amount to support the troops! It always touches me to see all of the work that the ladies there making cards and bringing in donations for care packages. They truly care and it shows in their actions! They definitely put others before themselves. It truly means a lot to us when we're deployed and away from our family and home to get something from back here. It means more to us than many will ever know.
