I received an email from my good friend Amy, who you will remember is the owner and genius behind Great Cakes Soap Works. Well, she is having a special. And it is for one of the best causes, and one that is very near and dear to my heart….
Amy has the BEST soaps…;perfect for gifts, showers, and even pampering yourself. I love ALL her stuff….I mean really….I have ordered a bunch and the stuff just gets better and better all the time.
excerpt from her email:
My older daughter has a friend named Lainey. Lainey is in my daughter’s 3rd grade class at school and we also attend the same church. When she was in kindergarten, Lainey was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease which is a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines. It primarily causes ulcerations (breaks in the lining) of the small and large intestines because the immune system is continually activated with or without cause. It goes through cycles of remission and relapse, and this year has been a continuous battle of relapse for Lainey, with three hospital stays since December. The photo is of Lainey when she got released from the hospital in February. While we know there is no cure for Crohn’s, we are praying that Lainey can experience a complete remission soon!
My daughter especially prays for Lainey every night and is very concerned for her. So when Lainey told their class that she would be walking for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation this Saturday, my daughter wanted to join her and I did too.
Our mission is to raise $250 for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation before the Take Steps to Be Heard Walk that we will be participating in this Saturday. See, we don’t have a lot of extra money to donate, but we do have soap! So for every Handmade Soap Combo (4 soaps for $20) that we sell between now and Saturday, we will donate $10 to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. If you would normally buy soap from Great Cakes Soapworks anyway, please consider buying it this week!
Thank you for hearing our hearts on this,
“A great cake of soap can cleanse your body, but only a great God can cleanse your soul.” See I John 1:9
It’s is an incredible generous offer on Amy’s part. I hope that you can take advantage of a terrific deal and also support Lainey.
Someone did not feel like going to sleep until after 9:30 last night, and then was up again at 2:30 am and then wide awake and throwing a holy fit a 7 am. Mommy really needs the weather to improve so the twinkies can go back outside and play…..this rain in mid 50’s, yeah….it’s not really working around our house.
Little boy, well, he is just being funny today, which is pretty amazing considering I finally got a look in his mouth and his top molars have erupted through. He gets really excited when he talks on the phone, and very politely tells everyone, “Bye Bye”. It is too cute.
Oh…and tonight is $4 cheesesteak night at Slack’s Hoagie Shack…..it’s friggin’ huge, has a small price….and Mommy like!
Me? Well, I just feel tired. I didn’t feel great yesterday and I am not feeling much better today. I did have one bright and shining moment. My package from R.U. Nuts, Inc. came via UPS. Inside was two wonderful packages of the mix that Moxie Java uses for the Ice Caramel Latte. So, I got a little brain freeze yesterday. I have no big plans for the day….maybe just another indulent Caramel drink…..mmmmm…..jitters.
