Shriners Hospitals for Children Gifts

My 60th birthday was coming and I just knew someone was going to try throwing a surprise party. Not wanting gifts I didn't need, I decided to throw my own party with my husbands blessings. We invited family and a few close friends. We also hired the very talented Chad Beach to entertain us with his Elvis and Ray Stevens impersonations to name a few along with karaoke. I forgot to mention that Chad is blind.

I asked that everyone bring me a gift for a child; unwrapped so Denny and I can deliver them to the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Chicago. I am truly blessed with such wonderful family and friends.

I want to encourage each and everyone to consider this kind of gift giving at birthdays and at Christmas.
