My newest adventure...

Tonight I finally did something that I have been wanting to do for years...I am sponsoring a 2 year old girl (Emannuelly) that lives in Brazil. I have always wanted to sponsor a child that needs help financially, etc. She is so cute! I get to write to her, and her family will write back until she is old enough to write back herself. I get pictures, school progress reports and health information. It's amazing how just a little bit of your own money and a little of your time goes a long way for such a less fortunate family. The organizaton (as I'm sure many will recognize from their famous tv commericals) has been around since the 1930's. So I have a lot of faith and trust in them and what they stand for.

If any of you have had thoughts of wanting to help a little child from another country have a better chance of surviving in such harsh conditions, check out:

It warms my heart to think that this little girl as well as the many other sponored children now have a better chance of having a healthier future :)

Inspirational song..

A very inspirational song regarding my last post, had to share! One of my favoite songs hands down!

October is....

Sitting (or should I say laying) at home with the stomach flu for the second day in a row led me to thinking of illnesses and diseases. Go figure! October is breast cancer awareness grandma was a breast cancer survivor and I usually run in the susan b. komen "race for the cure" every year in september in her memory. My mom is also a manager for a breast cancer center at a hospital, and with me working in hospitals for the last 6 years... as you can imagine...this particular disease is very near and dear to me. Ladies, be aware...check yourself, see your doctor annually, and know that there are many women in this world that are here to support you. Here's to hoping that someday we will find a cure for a disease that takes soo many women's lives each year.Looking forward to getting some relief soon from the stomach flu...ugh! Hope everyone is doing good! Happy Wednesday!!!

Happy Wednesday!!

Soo very blessed...

This past week has been such an incrediable blessing for me in so many ways. My sister-in-law, Alison gave birth to her little girl on wed (Oct 10th). She is soo beautiful, and has the most perfect little features! What a blessing Elizabeth Lee Juroe is to the family.
With such a great event happening, Alison wanted to make sure her older child (Christian..who is 2 years old) was not left out and felt like Elizabeth was an addition to the family instead of "taking his place." Alison even bought a toy trash truck so it could be a gift from Elizabeth to Christian...I thought that was such a great idea. Alison is such a great mom! John and I had the honor of taking care of Christian all weekend...on Saturday we took him to his daycare's field trip to the pumpkin patch. We rode on tracker rides, walked through corn mazes, and picked out a little pumpkin. We also took Christian to "Build-a-bear" where he picked out and made a puppy named "Spot." On Sunday, we took Christian to church and spent the afternoon with him. What a blessing to be able to take care of a know that they trust you, rely on you, and love you. I had such a good weekend.
The highlight of the week though was that Alison asked John and I to be Christian's Godparents....all I can say is that I am blown away and feel so blessed and grateful. We love our little nephew sooo much. God has truly granted us a gift.
All in all, life is soo good right now. There are not enough words to express the feelings, just plain happiness.
