Thanks Charlotte. You give encouragement and hope to many-- through your words, your beautiful handmade art pieces, and your positive and upbeat manner in all you do!

Whether you amaze us with your creativity, enthrall us with your stories, or move us when you share your mother with us, you are the woman next door, the college friend, sister, crafter that we call can relate to. It is a special gift you give to all of us, and, I hope you know we appreciate it so, so much!

Isn't that wonderful. Amazing how big the internet world is, and so nice to see such a sweet story come to you. Thanks for all you do to keep it nice & inspiring.


What a great letter to receive. We girls can fly! xox Corrine


Oh! How wonderful to receive that email Charlotte, to know you touched another life, provided encouragement and made an impact. Hurray hurrah for Kaitlin for following her dream and her accomplishments!

This makes me all smiley!

Happy almost weekend,


as reading your blog is a daily ritual, i wondered down the path a little further and read the 2007 post about your daughter. i, too, shed a tear. the story of her food drive and what she said to the man shows she was a winner from the get go. how is she doing after 4 years. you must tell us more about her. i will be posting about the halloween in a couple of days and will link to the story since it is so true! Sorry Paris Hilton, but this HOT!


thanks, Constanza! Mo now works for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society, a not-for-profit, as a campaign coordinator. Shes still very active on the fire department and responds to calls whenever she is close enough to do so.
