How we Send Smiles

It all started with a group of women who love to create. We swap our gifts seasonally and have enjoyed getting to know each other through the process. Recently, we gathered a few homemade gifts together to send a basket of goodies to NieNie, a fellow blogger who has inspired all of us and has been going through a rough time. An almost fatal plane crash, severely burned body and surgery after surgery to allow her to live the best life possible. She has lifted us with her amazing example of motherhood and hopefully we brightened her day with our gifts and love.

This was the beginning of a bright idea, to cheer up someone in need with little gifts, either handmade or store bought. We live in various parts of the U.S. sending smiles by mail.
Our next candidate is a lovely lady named Savannah. She and her husband have been trying to adopt for years and have been placed with a birth mom for a few months. Recently, the birth mom changed her mind and is placing her baby with a different family. As you can imagine, Savannah is heartbroken; she has lost a child. More on Savannah soon.

I feel like this something small we can do to help lift someone's burdens. There is no profit or gain, just a sense of peace for giving and helping in someway with the talents we were blessed with. I hope to be able to touch many lives as we send our "smiles" to those in need of a little cheer and happiness!
