  1. Thank you! I'm doing a happy dance --- can you see me??

    Most proud? I donate yearly to the United Way, to our local food pantry, and I try to be a compassionate person.

    Not nearly enough considering the state of affairs in today's society.

    Thank you again Paula!

  2. I'm not a cross-stitcher, but I would love to win these for my mom who is. I'm proud of the wonderful life I provide for my dogs and the fact that my charity donations every year go to the SPCA. If I've made a difference in the life of one dog, that makes me happy.

  3. Can I add something else? When I commented I was thinking about what I give back - but I have thought more about this since. I am most proud of my kids. They are good kids with kind hearts, smart, and the kind of people you want to be with. I can't take all the credit but I might have done something right with them.
