Operation Kid Comfort!

I am just full of fun today aren't I? Well I HAD to share this with you all. Like the story of the Good Samaritan i would like to keep this going and pass it on to you and hope you pass it on to everyone you know. Either to donate or to get. Operation Kid Comfort is an AMAZING and UNBELIEVABLE organization full of AMAZING people. So, what does this organization do? They make quilts for kids of deployed mothers/fathers! I found this out on a group I am in on Cafemom. I found out in June and emailed them my info and what they needed and then was told it would take time. September came and I wondered if this was too good to be true so I emailed them and received an email that same day saying they were behind and just got started on June's orders. Well I forgot about it until today when I received it in the mail! I opened it up and was in total SHOCK, it was more than words. As I was jumping up and down and had goosebumps all down my arms, I noticed there was an envelope with Colton written on it. I opened it up and it was a card and a little story behind the quilt. I balled like a baby. Colton woke from his nap and I didn't hesitate to show him. He screamed,"DAD!" "DADDY"! Hugged it and have been inseperable ever since. Why would they be? Well, I forgot to mention that they put pictures of the one who is deployed on the quilt!
And by the way, THIS IS FREE! Shipping and the quilt are free! this organization does this for free! That is why it is such an honor to get a quilt someone took the time to make and everyone involved. My son is in LOVE with his and can see and hold,kiss and hug his daddy everyday. Which he has done and even acted like daddy was really there...talking and playing with him; showing him his cars and trains. Here are some pictures and how priceless it is.
Showing me where daddy is.
Pointing to daddy
In the right corner is his trains and cars, showing and playing with daddy!
HATS OFF TO OPERATION KID COMFORT! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO AND TO ALL MY READERS, IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE OR ARE SOMEONE WHO IS DEPLOYED WITH CHILDREN...GO HERE!
You saw My Rays of Sunshine beaming bright, my cup over flows!

Oh wow!!! Goosebumps!!!!!! That is so awesome!!!!!! What a great way for Colton to always feel the warmth of his daddy's loving arms around him, until he arrives safely home to hug & hold him in person!!!!
