$50.00 Gift Certificate Donated

 Okay...I received the gift card with full intention of buying my mother a really nice Mother's Day gift. However...she is a single lady, who lives independently and buys everything she wants on her own. What do you buy someone like that? Well...today I got a notice at my son's pre-school that stated that another local pre-school had been struck by lightening during recent rain storms and had burned. They were asking for donations of anything to re-start the school. This pre-school was run by a couple of grandmothers and the community is small and poor and so I thought I would donate my gift card to them to purchase items to help with that. I sure hope this was okay. It seemed like the right thing to do.

 That was very sweet of you Vickey.  It was definitely the right thing to do.  I would send your mom a very nice card with a note that you made a donation in her honor to the school (maybe you can make a certificate on your computer or the school will send you something).

I think that was awesome for you to do.  What a great Mother's Day gift you are giving to those children's mothers.  Can you imagine how you would feel knowing that their education went up in smoke?

Somewhat OT, but I remember when a huge chunk of my highschool exploded my senior year. we were out of school for almost a month.
