My next step with the group was to join in Operation Christmas Train. What a great feeling to decorate and send boxes of “stuff” to one of our deployed guys. I never did receive an acknowledgement of the box received but I can imagine the appreciation and smiles I hope I brought to him. My 6 months was finally up and I was able to join the card and Boxes group. I guess I joined at a slow time but I was still able to send out a few Boxes of Sunshine.
Well things changed in a quick minute. There was a transition within the Boxes group and I was asked to be the Moderator of the Boxes group. I wasn’t sure about it, but I agreed I have to say I have enjoyed talking to Moms who kids need boxes and the ones who are sending out Boxes. It fills me with pride knowing I had a hand in making someone’s day brighter by just forwarding an address. This is my way of contributing even if I am not able to send boxes out myself. A knowing pride of how such a group of women and a few men can make a difference.
