Sunday's in My City Participate then Celebrate

Unknown Mami

Previous to my Farmer's Market Autism Awareness Booth, 
I had my first booth a few Sunday's ago at 
Long Beach Memorial Hospital 
during the Autism Society Conference....
"The best way to find yourself, 
is to lose yourself in the service of others."

 If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.  
~Abigail Van Buren

This weekend we got some great news....
I received my State Tax I.D. after submitting 
my non-profit paperwork for my group 
Autism in Long Beach!
I am just awaiting my 501(c)3 certificate!
It took some saving and help from family 
to pay for that sucker!!
There is still awhile to go, but today, 
We Celebrate!
My friend Stella, My oldest boys, and I...
A day without laughter is a day wasted. 
~Charlie Chaplin
We cannot always build the future for our youth, 
but we can build our youth for the future.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt
To bring up a child in the way he should go, 
travel that way yourself once in a while.  
~Josh Billings
There are two lasting bequests we can give our children.  One is roots.  The other is wings.  
~Hodding Carter, Jr
Each day of our lives we make deposits 
in the memory banks of our children.  
~Charles R. Swindoll
There is only one pretty child in the world, 
and every mother has it.
