i'm up to my eyeballs in work, but that has never stopped my A.D.D. brain from stalking facebook and my favorite blogs for entertainment and information while i work.
it's cyber monday, and many are doing their holiday shopping from the comfort (and warmth) of their homes. good call on that. it's cloudy, drizzly and dang-cold today. can't think of a better way to spend my day than i.n.s.i.d.e.
in my quest to make christmas count for something this year, i've giving with a purpose. my brother is getting a real gift from me, but he's also getting a REAL gift for someone else too. i'm supporting charity:water, land of 1,000 hills, dolly parton's imagination library, and reece's rainbow. that goes for my sister in law, and many of my friends. do we really need another gift set of lotion or other token?
my friend jeannett, over at life rearranged is featuring a guest blogger today who has a sweet message of her life which was rearranged the day her daughter Nella arrived. she's shedding light on reece's rainbow, an organization that advocates adoption for children born with down's. many born in eastern europe face a future removed from any kind of family as when they reach a certain age of not being adopted, they are removed from the orphanage and are sent to awful institutions. reece's rainbow helps place families with children and also facilitates the financing of adoptions which can be financially impossible without grants and monetary gifts.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
I'm offering up this opportunity for you to learn more… check out the links in this post, or click on cliff's cute little picture in my sidebar.
Let's all band together and make a real family a reality for cliff. if i give and i tell three friends, and they tell three friends… we can make a serious impact this holiday season.
