The best bedtime story ever!

So far, this blog has accumulated 681 posts and over 23,000 page views from readers in the United States, France, Canada, Portugal, Germany, China, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, Australia and Latvia. It is featured in the online edition of four American newspapers.

Today's crumb comes from Texas, where 100 underprivileged children were invited to the Cowboys football stadium recently for an overnight sleepover party. The kids all had one thing in common. None had beds to sleep on at home. Instead, they slept on mats or other furniture, or on the floor.

So imagine how thrilled they were to enter the stadium and find 100 beds lined up on the field, each outfitted with blue and silver Cowboy swag, cuddly quilts and teddy bears. This would be their best night ever! Not only did they eat pizza and hang out with real football players and cheerleaders. They also got to watch a fun movie on the giant stadium screen. But the best was yet to come. In the morning, before they went home, the children were told they could keep their beds. Ashley Furniture would deliver one to each child's home. Now that's a bedtime story they'll never forget.
