The Casual Day


--by Lezah, posted Dec 14, 2007

My daughter goes to a special needs school and every year they are involved with Casual Day.  This year I helped the school sell approximately 9000 tickets, with all my contacts, friends and family.

The smiles of appreciation, the children's laughter, the rewards .... enormous.

Today I decided my daughter had to look special on this special day ... I stuck gorgeous star stickers all over her face and put a T-shirt on her that says, "I may not be a STAR right now but I will be someday!"

The theme today is "Be a Star".  She is a star today, my star, my special, loving,gorgeous, angel child.

Here's to you today Brittany! We love you in unmeasurable quantities!
