Good Morning Beloved #457

You have a gift and it is meant to be used, given, and shared in this life. Use it, gift it, apply it, but whatever you do, don’t waste it. Life is too precious to leave your dreams undone. Stop questioning if you are good enough, special enough, or gifted enough to do it. You […]

Auntie’s Day

Today, not only do I celebrate the gift of being an auntie, but also my 34th and Carolina’s 12th birthday.  Oh my look at those puppy dog eyes. Mirror, mirror, on the baby jumper who is the fairest baby of them all? James (gasp) wait a second mirror did you just say James? You do […]

I got this dress for my sister as a gift.

It’s fun to buy clothes and envision what it’ll look like on someone. I think I have good taste. Perhaps, a wardrobe stylist would be a fun job but that is not an option I’d have the luxury to explore at this time. I must stick to my tedious grind. Do you enjoy shopping and trying […]

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, […]

Hey, 10 Year-Old!

I glued six googly eyes on the card I sent Carolina for her 10th birthday, this past summer. Single digit years (ages 1-9) go by so fast and for most of our lives, if not the rest of our lives we’re in the double digits. Let’s be realistic, not everyone makes it to the triple […]

Baby Shower Keepsake Book

     This is a nice little registry for baby shower guests to sign. As the pregnant guest of honor unwraps her presents, designate someone to write down each item along with the name of the gift-giver. This booklet will come in handy later so that the parents-to-be can send out thank you cards or include a […]

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 […]

Free Souvenir

When vacationing it’s always a nice gesture to buy yourself, family and friends souvenirs. When I was in The Bahamas, I was so overwhelmed with the majestic waters and activities that I really didn’t spend much time in any of those gift shops. As my vacation was coming to a close I realized that I […]
