Weeping Willow Tree and Me

These beautiful trees are found through North America, Europe and Asia. My sponsor child wrote a handwritten letter asking for some pictures. So I printed out a few and put them inside her Thanksgiving card. I’m actually holding Carolina’s 2015 World Vision progress report photo in my hand as a sweet surprise. Quick Tip: When […]

Good Morning Gorgeous #354

Children Learn What They Live If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn. If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight. If a child lives with fear, he learns to be apprehensive. If a child lives with pity, he learns to feel sorry for himself. If a child lives with ridicule, […]

Paper & Magnetic Dolls

I remember trying to find paper dolls for Carolina back in 2011 to no avail, so I wound up printing one out for her instead. Fast forward to 2013 seeing magnetic dress up dolls in the store refreshed my memory. I can recall how much fun I had playing with simplistic things as a small […]

11th Birthday Care Package Received

World Vision sent me a photo of Carolina sitting next to the gifts that were mailed back in May. It’s nice seeing her smiling face. It’d be nice to see yours too. May God bless you and all of your loved ones year-round. Oh, and guess what I found? A second photo inside the envelope and […]

11th Birthday Care Package

Carolina (my sponsor child) will be turning eleven this coming July (2013) so I sent her care package early to make sure she’ll get it prior to her special day. Inside there was chalk, dolls, hand puppet, crayons, coloring books, magic paint books, colored pencils, purple high heel pencil sharpener, flower shaped erasers, pens, pencils, […]

Read Me A Story

When I was a little girl I liked Bernstein Bears, Little Critter, and Dr. Suess but I must say my favorite book was entitled: “Mother, Mother, I Want Another” by Maria Polushkin. The story line was so cute and I was fortunate enough to have a mom who read bedtime stories to me. The son […]

Pointless Bullying

The bullying in schools is getting out of hand. I graduated from H.S. in the late 90’s so cyber-bullying wasn’t something my peers had to deal with. I didn’t even own a cell phone just a pager. Remember when pay phones were all over the place? Now you seldom see them & chances are when you do it’s “out […]

Goodie Goodie Gumdrops

 Guess what came in the mail today? A new photo of my sponsor child Carolina and her annual progress report. It says that her favorite subject in school is Art (check out the pretty flowers she colored). Her best friend is named Oscar. Favorite color is red and she enjoys playing soccer. Carolina is currently […]

Birthday Girls

I would like to share a couple photos with you of me and my cousin Rochelle. As an adult now looking back at the photo on the LEFT I wonder what “Chelle” wished for before she blew out her birthday candles. As a child I just wished she’d hurry up and blow them out so we could eat the cake. A […]
