I don't need to tell folks how difficult this economy has been on families.  I've been very blessed in that we have not been impacted by job loss, or home loss, or financial stress.  Unfortunately, that is not the case for everyone.  Specifically, many years ago (30+) I met a woman online at a craft site called Krafty Kreations.  It seems impossible that it was that long ago, but despite the years and the distance (she lived in Texas) we were able to remain good friends.  Olga has since passed, but with social media I have been able to keep in touch with her family.

Christina, is Olga's granddaughter.  And this is what I found on Christina's FB wall earlier today.  I am posting it here because I am of the strong belief that the meaning to life is people, and to help those we love when they are in need.  If you know me, then you know that I try to live my life accordingly and to share the many blessings that have been given to me.  If this is not the meaning of life, then I truly do not know what is.  


Ok Family and Friends , I am going to have a benefit for Rick real soon. He got let go from his job due to his illness. So no insurance to pay for him to see specialists. Going to need your help. I will post when and where soon. If you would like to help, or have any questions, inbox me. Thanks ♥ you guys!! God Bless

And as  a forward to her announcement of the benefit:  Ricky, Christina's husband, was hospitalized last week with what they had originally diagnosed as pneumonia.  After a surgery to relieve the fluid in his lungs, they determined that he had a staph infection in his lungs.  He was in critical condition and underwent yet another surgery.  He is home, but unable to work and in need of more medical attention.  The rest is explained in her FB post.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  And, please feel free to email me at for her address, should you find that you are able to help out, in whatever way possible.  Thank you!
