Needing to Give

I have been blessed. It is so true. Life is not perfect. That is so. But. I have never been homeless. I have never been truly hungry. I’ve always had clothing to keep me warm. I’ve always had clean bedding. And, even though I am experiencing some pains from the current economy, I still know where my next meal is coming from. I still have a door to unlock after I leave work tonight. I still have an office door to unlock again tomorrow morning. Many are not so fortunate. Many right here in my home country. I did a little something last week to support the Bushfire Appeal in Australia. I supported some other wonderful causes last year in Africa and South America. Sometimes, your heartstrings receive a little tug and you just know it’s right. You Need to Give.

Rachel posted last week about starting a project for teen mother’s in Appalachia, as a response to viewing, through tears, Diane Sawyer’s Hidden America broadcast. Rachel’s little project has blossomed into a wonderful response to a need for creature comforts…something as simple as a blanket for a baby. I’ve been looking for a deserving home for my little UFO gem I finished up a few months ago…

I now know in my heart, it was just waiting for the right time and place…
