Weekly Winners – July 12 – July 18, 2009 – Jet Skiing With Neighborhood Kids
This morning I got choked up and emotional. I was thinking about all the kindnesses my friends and associates have given the children on my street, children they had never met. Christina at AmiExpat shipped them a box packed full of German chocolates. My friend Bill and his lovely wife Priscilla donated a laptop to our unofficial computer lab. The former proprietors of The Riverhouse Coffee Company donated an old laptop as well.
This week’s Weekly Winners document another kindness. My co-worker, ZJ, and his brother-in-law, Bruce, recently purchased a Jet Ski. And even though this equipment is brand new and probably very expensive– they invited some of the neighborhood kids to come up to First Landing State Park at Virginia Beach for a day of jet skiing.
I took fifteen year old Khalif, twelve year old Armani and eleven year olds Jacal and Jamonte. Bruce’s friends Ray and Vanessa came as well and brought their young daughter, Kristin.
What amazing generosities my friends extend.
Once again, choked up.
