Every year I choose an organization to give a Christmas donation to. Sometimes I do it in honor of someone in my life. It is a great gift. They are always tickled when I tell them what I've done. This year I think I'm going to give my donation in honor of my boss. He is a kind person. Whenever I meet with him, I walk away with a smile. Isn't it wonderful to have a boss that leaves you with a big old smile on your face? I think so.
This year my donation is going to raise money to build a well. Do you read Flower Patch Farmgirl? If you don't you should. You will be blessed beyond belief. Shannan is a beautiful woman who just lays her soul wide open and invites us all in. She is a wife and a mama to a passel of beautiful children. (Sorry, Shannan, I only had two so more than two is a passel to me.) She writes of real life adventures like little boys that rearrange their bedroom when they are supposed to be taking a nap. She shares delicious salad recipes. Which I make and even take photos of and then fail to blog about. She tells us when she cries. (Yes, Shannan, I cry too.) She shares her faith. She is a teacher. She wrote 31 days of letting go and if you weren't along for the ride you should go back and read it all. I learned so much. Shannan makes me miss my faith sometimes. And then I think to myself oh hello, you were there all the while.
My faith is very personal and it is deep inside of me just like a tree planted by the water.
So hop on over to Shannan's wonderful blog, visit with her and make a Christmas donation. You'll be glad you did.
