Sorry I'm slacking!

I've had a lot going on, so I've been slacking on my posts. We have guest from out of town (amazing how many visitors you get when you live in Hawaii!) and I've been preparing for Christmas. I know, I know- excuses, excuses. To make up for it, I'm going to power through a few books. I promise. Just watch me!

Merry Christmas! May your holidays be bright, your relatives in a tolerable state of intoxication, and the food delicious!

Cards for Matthew Mickelson Butman

Hello, friends. This blog post is a little different from the other ones I've posted, but it might be the most important post I've written so far. I want all of you to read this link: Did it work? You got it? Well, let me sum it up: Matthew Mickelson Butman is a very thoughtful little boy who is terminally ill. For Christmas, he donated a bunch of stuff to charity and all he wants in return is Christmas cards from around the world. This year for Christmas, I want you to send a card to this little boy. Here's his address again, in case you missed it:

Matthew Mickelson Butman
 PO Box 1865 
Wylie, TX, 75089.

And while you're at it, find a way to send Christmas cards to soldiers, give gift cards to the homeless, and spread a little cheer. We're all just people, after all- and people need to feel loved. Never underestimate the power of kindness from strangers.
