You may be tired of hearing me post about Orphan Care. Oh well... I've read several posts lately about Operation Christmas Child. It's one of those things I file away. Then I read this post today. She pretty much sums up most of the things I've been thinking about.
I've been to Target twice this week. Once for a baby shower gift and I happened to buy Bria some pants and shirts that were on clearance because I thought her winter clothes were a bit sparse. What does that mean really? She only had four long sleeved shirts to choose from, now she has six plus a ton of dresses and they are all mix and match? I overspend. All. The. Time. I'm starting to think about it now. Maybe eventually it will sink in to this thick skull.
Last night, I stayed at church late talking to a friend. She is from the Ukraine. Her son is in Bria's class at church and school. She has been telling me about a program to bring orphans here for Christmas. She can't find anyone to help. I'm not sure how I feel about that program, but I want to help Helen because she's my friend. I don't know how.
As all these things eat at me, I saw this video. If one person watches it and decided to send a shoe box, then I can fill a little bit better. I've done my shopping for this week. Next week, I will not go to Target or Wal-Mart. I will do all of my shopping at the commisary. I will take the money that we save and have our girls' participate in sending a box.
