Re: Christmas giving programs and strange places to look for garden stuff

Fran: I sincerely apologize if anything I said made you feel as if I was
judging your statements and finding fault. I truly understand how
frustrating it is to have your generosity and unselfish giving flung
back in your face as unworthy...it hurts when we take the risk to reach
out to others and it is not appreciated by many of them. And so we look
for places or causes where we feel we can do the most good without
getting hurt. I just want you to know, Fran, that you may never know the
good that you do for the one person who did appreciate your
kindness...often they are the smallest and weakest, those with no
voice...but they are there and they need you even if those who are
responsible for them are unkind and insensitive and materialistic...they
need all of us to remember that they are there... that's all I wanted
you to know from my earlier message...I guess I didn't do such a good
job of that and I'm sorry. :-)

Now, to your second question...much of my yard art in my gardens is from
thrift stores...best source of stuff if you have the patience to look
for the bargains. :-)

Melody, Kitty, I really think that some of my message was
misunderstood.<br>I have no problems with contributing to others. But,
when your attempts<br>to help are tossed aside or considered not
expensive or pretty enough,<br>it makes me want to stop forever. I guess
what I want to say is that I'm<br>picky about where I make my donations
now. Yes, I do try to bring the<br>&quot;pretties&quot; into others'
lives and realize that I've been so fortunate<br>all my life.<br><br>
<br>One of my favorite charities is Habitat for Humanity because it
best<br>embraces some of my own values. Besides financial and misc.
donations, I<br>love to shop at their thrift store for goodies to use in
the garden. I'm<br>wondering if anyone else roams thrift stores or
salvage yards for garden<br>ideas and stuff?
