ALL OF US ARE RICHER THAN ONE OF US!

Almost everyday I get email reminding me of how much we all benefit from networking together as MTs and as people. I have a new appreciation for the survival benefits of communities built around common needs and interests because of new needs in my own life. I've found about 25 other wives facing the same challenge and they are a lifeline of strength for me, along with encouraging notes from email friends. I know that many of you are having the same experience. Although our communications are limited and sometimes become destructive on the Internet, we can have more continuity in friendships, and I'm persuaded we have only just begun to discover the potential for good we have at our fingertips.

Let's continue to inspire each other and bring the best out of each other, and help each other where we are weak. With courteous and clear words, we can keep making each other smarter and richer!

We now have nonprofit status allowing for tax deductible gifts, and we are ready to receive donations and applications, temporarily by email. If you would like to donate to or apply to our emergency/scholarship fund for MTs, please write me email at mary@mtdaily.com, and see http://www.mtdaily.org.

Don't miss the article below about stem cell creation of blood! What days of discovery we live in!
