I know this is not diabetes related per se, but I'm so excited that I HAVE to share this with my DC family!
Today my daughter and I were out Christmas shopping and we went to my favorite store, Family Christian Book Store. I wanted to get a cd, and get my friend a birthday gift. Which I did. At the register they had some specials and also a brochure with the picture of a young boy. Well in talking with the cashier (i talk to everyone!!) I found out this little boys birthday was tomorrow (12-1) and he was part of an organization called World Vision, and he was looking to be "adopted".
Well, guess what I did!! Yep, I adopted that little boy!!! YEAH!! I took one look at my daughter and she was like, oh yeah! So I signed up to sponsor this little guy! I'm so excited!
This organization does not just help him, they help the whole family, and the community. It sounds like a wonderful organization. I have always wanted to do this, but was always leery because of hearing all the bad things and the money not going to help the children. This is sponsored by quite a few christian artists, and that was all she wrote. The boys big dark eyes pulled me in! :)
And you want to know the crazy thing?! I almost didn't go! I was driving along and had forgotten that I wanted to go there, and almost passed the turn. I snapped to attention in just enough time to be able to pull over into the turn lane and turn. And that's how I know that the Lord's hand was in this. If I had missed the turn I would not have turned around, I would have just thought, oh well, and kept on going!
God is awesome and good. I love when the Lord is at work in my life and I'm able to do His will!!
Thank you for letting me share this wonderful news with all of you. It was important to me to share with my "family"! God Bless all of you.
