Just Needing Lots of Prayers for Friends

My heart is heavy right now as I think of those in my life who need prayer.

*Daycare providers young teen daughter is in PICU with RSV complicating her severe asthma. God is great that there's a neighbor near provider's home that will watch my kids and I totally trust.

*Lady at work has a one year-old grandson who is in hospital with respiratory distress, bronchiolitis, and RSV (boy, those names sure hit a nerve with me!)

*A friend of a friend has cancer and it's getting much worse. Friend is afraid that they will lose her soon.

*A colleague/friend at work has cancer that has spread from breast to lungs to brain and now in spine.

Dear God, I just lift all of these people (and the many more that I can't even begin to list here) up to you Lord and ask that you heal and comfort them.

That's what I call customer service!!!

Back in Dec. I bought some Just Kidz brand (Kmart) doodle boards. Great price but they were all defective (I bought 10 for the daycare). I contacted the buyer for this brand, Y. Sagol and he apologized but I didn't expect much more (I had gotten my money all back). Fast forward to today.........
I open the door and have to sign for a package. It's a big box from Hong Kong! In it were doodle boards (12 of them!) plus a projection board (the kind with a light to help the kid trace stuff) and a letter from Soma International Ltd. saying they had fixed the problem with the boards and are sorry for the inconvenience and here are some ... See Morereplacements plus another gift. WOW!! I'm totally impressed! The boards all work so the daycare will get their Christmas gift on Monday. Taylor loves the projection board.WELL DONE Y. Sagol and Soma International Ltd. That's what I call customer service!!!
I won't hesitate to buy from the Just Kidz brand any more!

I should be doing Progress Reports, but I'm not. I should be reading for book club, but I'm not (it's The Shack and I have to read it before next Thurs. but I'm just not into it...this is second time I've tried to read it). I will try to read some tonight though!
I am playing on Facebook and reading blogs.
I'll leave you with some videos of cuteness (yes, I'm biased).
Oh, and did you see this? So proud of my school system for making national news (insert sarcasm here).

Grady laughing (and at the end accidentally kicking the phone...listen to him say "Sorry Mom") and then Taylor having to get in on the action too! :)
