Over Christmas, a Baptist Church in California heard that my young friend, Miss B, lost her movies and t.v. in the hurricane. They sent a new t.v. and bunches of movies to her.

Ruby got a new pair of diabetic shoes from a donor in Georgia.

An older friend and her husband received home repairs, a new handicap-accessible bathroom and new furniture from a church in Mississippi.

A preacher buddy received help repairing her home and an offer for new furniture from another church in Mississippi.

Our new animal shelter is moving to completion with donations from all over the U.S.

Eddie Hartwell's church is feeding people to this day. He sent a plate to me Saturday night which I ate happily. His church remains a center of re-building in Gulfport. God bless him and all his donors!

Americans are supposed to be the most generous of the world's people. Per capita, Mississippians are the most generous of Americans but, believe me, we couldn't survive all the tragedies without your help.

The church down here are wonderful. Samaritans Purse put a blue roof on my sister's roof before the Army Corps of Engineers could come out. A group from a college in Conniticut helped her spread fill dirt where trees had been up rooted. The American people are truly very generous with their time and compassionate.

I love hearing the good things that have happened. It will never fix everything or make up for what all has happened but it is a start.
