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, […]

Love You Forever

I purchased this book for my nephew so that he will know just that. Even though it’s a children’s book it made me cry. I’m not joking. When reading to him in bed as a smaller baby, I’d hold different books in the air while we were both laying on our backs looking up at […]

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 […]

Merry Christmas to all my Christian friends!

Last year I sent Carolina some holiday gifts. I kinda wish they wouldn’t have delivered the gifts at school though because I wasn’t trying to make the other children feel bad or left out. Nevertheless, World Vision sent me another nice photo to cherish. Carolina’s mother (Josefa) and father are doing such an amazing job […]

This was a fun activity day at the school. Each classroom dressed up like they were from different countries. The children made a colorful dragon in art class. In Kuwait the school/work days are Sunday-Thursday. Friday-Saturday is the weekend. The majority of the population Muslim. Jumu’ah (Friday Prayers) are done inside the Mosque. Muslim men […]

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 […]

From Scratch

I remember growing up how coloring books were a treat but it was always fun to create your own art from scratch. Nowadays I like creating “digital art” and doing crafts but that’s a whole nother story…          My friend’s son Tristen made a quick sketch with a pen handed it to me […]

Whether you answer correctly or not they will donate dog and cat food to animal shelters just for participating. This process makes donating easy, quick, fun and FREE!  “Every dog and cat deserves a decent […]
