WHEN I SAT DOWN... to write this note, I tried to think of a
special way to say: "Happy New Year" to you. But instead of writing, I
began to think. Lots of things crossed my mind like:

All the new friends we've made this year, and the ones we see and talk with each week. How some of us have untangled some pretty knotty problems. The bright new plans we
have for the New Year and the ways we intend to do a better job.

But, when I picked up my pen, I just couldn't get all these thoughts

Author's Bio: 

Terry Weber is a retired advertising/direct mail sales letter copywriter and inventor of several useful items. Terry and his wife Doris were Habitat For Humanity, RV Care-A- Vanners who, for the past eight years volunteered to help build more than 39 houses all over the USA. They traveled to and from the 2-week long builds in their RV. The money they make on their website helped them pay their expenses to and from those volunteer Habitat builds.

P.S. Due to the high cost of gasoline and some recent health problems we can no longer drive the RV to Habitat builds. The RV has been sold. If you want to "give back" try joining Habitat For Humanity. It is both rewarding and lots of fun to help a hard working, needy family get an affordable home of their own.

Note: This is a "hands-up" not a "hand-out" program. The new owners of a Habitat house have a no- interest mortgage and no down payment is required. Their children then have a place they can point to and say: "My house! My home!" (Amen!)
