Holiday Party Success!!!!!!!!

I don't have words that even begin to express the gratitude I feel to the Neighbors for Neighbors Community. Thank you to everyone who helped donate and made this party possible! JP is truly amazing, just when we were worried about how to throw a party at all, our neighbors stepped forward and helped us throw the most amazing party we've ever had! 

The kids we serve often get jilted, but this time we were able to show them how much we care! The kids were so pleased with their gifts…

The Life May Be Underground

Winter in New England is a wonderful and challenging season.  It's brisk and can be bone chilling. Sometimes you have to screw your  "courage" and energy together just to go outside.  It can be a season of contrasts; it can be dark and stark outside, yet cozy and warm inside.

Dress Rehearsal

Have you ever been to a child's play practices? They can be a torturous experience. You can't help but wonder whether anyone is paying attention let alone whether they will ever be able to learn their roles. Chaos reigns until the day of dress rehearsal. Finally, the children are paying attention. They may not (and all too often don't) know their roles, but at dress rehearsal there is a good…

Twas the Night Before Christmas...Egleston-style!

A little poem to brighten the week!

ENJOY and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Twas the day of the event and all through the Square,

Christmas music was blasting and there was music in the air.

The decorations were hung on the storefronts with care,

Relax and Stop Striving

Four years ago I found myself sitting in a desert camp in Jordan at 10:00 at night with a young man who was born in a cave in Petra. I had just been traveling for about 18 hours in cars, jets and a van. And now I was in this totally other world experience. He described his years growing up, and the many trips he would take by himself for a few days at a time into the… Continue
