Tuesday 20th December 2011…..what a day!!!

Which started for me by meeting Linda and a group of volunteers from their Church..the purpose of the meeting was to deliver this truck load of 165 blankets

to the Cancer clinic in the nearby town of Celaya!!

Linda is the brains behind this huge endeavor and we set off in two vehicles for the one hour drive!!

At the clinic which is funded only by donations we were met by the great staff

It was truly a humbling sight to see so many young kids suffering from this terrible disease…but the staff are wonderful and we were all warmly accepted!!!!

The facility is ultra modern and the blankets were for the kids that come from all over the State for treatment that live mainly in Campos…so the blankets on the cold nights will be so useful…..truly a great morning!!!

Back in SMA I went to Casa Hogar to see the girls and to check on preparations for the party on Sunday…I only saw the girls for a minute as they were both busy doing their chores…something I do not want to interrupt!!!

Did sneak in this photo of the head Madre!!!

Back home to Casita Doris for a quick shower and change and off to meet Linda and Guy and get a ride with them as they had invited me to their Rotary Christmas party at the funky and lovely Tacos Don Felix…a beautiful restaurant behind one of those famous SMA doors!!!

So a great day!!!!

Stay tuned for a very busy Wednesday!!
