Today I got a great gift for my Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. My daughter's best friend, Joy (who is like another daughter for me) brought me 108 boxes of cute character bandages to include in the boxes at our packing party on September 28, 2013.
Joy had the coolest idea. Because God blessed her with good health in 2012 she had money remaining in her Flexible Spending Account at the end of the year.
She chose to use that money to buy bandages for our shoeboxes! (And as a school nurse I can tell you that kids LOVE bandages.)
I know the children who receive them will be sharing them and that God will use these to bring love and healing to many children around the world.
