    My daughter is going on a mission trip to Cambodia. They will be working with women and children who have been rescued from human trafficking.
    She called last night. She and some of her group were standing out side of a Michaels store. "Mom, I am calling to see if you would help us out." Sure I say what do you need. "We will be doing some craft project with the girls. Since they are taught to sew bags and things when they get older, we thought it would be fun to let them do art work with fabric. Do you think you could send a box of stuff? Like those fabric square quarter thingies an maybe some floss or whatever." Sure I say, I will get it out in the morning. Then she says, Mom says yes and everybody laughs....loudly. I asked her if she told them I have lots of stuff. And she says ....and I quote "No, I told them you had more crap than Michaels and that I hate that store as much as Joannes. I told them it was torture growing up and having to go. I have panic attacks thinking about it."
    More crap than Michaels??? Probably, :oops: :lol: :lol:
