Several people have asked me how I managed to quit drinking and I always tell them that I had to find something or someone that I loved more than drinking. These are my someone's. Four years ago, I was asked to take charge of the Chelem Toy Drive and I knew I couldn't do it and still drink. I wish I could say I quit right away, I didn't but eventually my love for these kids, my love for my own kids and my renewed love for myself gave me the impetus to quit and stay quit. I love them! This is what I'll be busy doing until December 25. I'll be busy begging for money, begging for raffle prizes, begging for toys. And I love every minute of it. If you want to keep up with the Chelem Christmas Dreams Toy Drive check out our Chelem Christmas Toy Drive Facebook Page and our Chelem Christmas Dreams Blog.
P.S. If you'd like to spend a couple days laying on the beach check out the raffle page on our blog. Sorry, but I'm shameless when it comes to these kids.
