brought gifts to The Baby as I offer some up today.
The next sowing of seeds, giving of gifts will come in March as we wait for
Ash Wednesday and Lent. April holds the promise of Easter.
It is a gray January day in Grand Junction as I write to you. Marcus Baxter,
my 11 year old grandson who lives in Eugene, OR, is undergoing aggressive
chemotherapy to prepare his body for the hoped for, the NEEDED bone marrow

match. www.marrow.org holds the necessary information for those of you who

Marcus is not the only child to need such help.
