'tis the season!

so I've been busy... husband is away on yet another work trip. Avery came down with a stomach bug today, so that was fun. i've also been building a business (Beachbody). and writing a novel. and leading a MOPs group. all I can say is thank you, God, for your grace!! I couldn't make it through the day without him! I can feel my body telling me to rest, though, as I now have a headache and am dying to go to bed! soon! BUT FIRST I wanted to just put this out there...
we all know Christmas is coming up. if you're like me, you have a daughter who's already handed in her Christmas list. so I was thinking the other day, why not support some GREAT causes this Christmas instead of buying the same ol' crap? still buy your kids a couple of nice gifts if that's your thing... but maybe set aside some money to support one of these causes. my favorites are: *WORLD VISION *SHOW HOPE *SAMARITAN'S PURSE with Samaritan's Purse you can actually have your kids help you pick out little gifts for kids all over the world then help you stuff them into shoe boxes to be mailed out. my daughters and I have done this together for the last couple of years and it really IS such a blessing! I'll take any opportunity I can get to teach my kid that it's not all about GETTING, but there can be so much joy found in GIVING!
