    Doin' my best...

    Advertisements
    so...we have this SSgt at work and her husband is deployed until next March...

    She is due with her first baby on November 4th and has NOTHING for the baby boy.

    Sooooo...of course me being me...I took up a collection at work and with the money we were able to get

    The "Eddie Bauer" car seat/stroller combo...the matching Play Yard and the complete crib set with mobile, decorations, lamp, curtains...the WHOLE thing that she wanted.

    On Friday we are having a potluck baby shower for her and we have about 20 women coming that are bringing tons of gifts to it.

    I just feel so bad for her...she has no friends here (as she just arrived)...no husband...or family here...I hope this brings her some joy!

    I feel good karma coming your way. I wish I could see the look on her face when she sees all that you and your friends did for her
