I just can't help myself...

Monday, January 22, 2007

Well, that is either the most hilarious bit of comedy or most depressing : I can't decide.

In my on-going arrogant efforts to save the world, my son and I joined World Vision and now await mail correspondence with a boy who shares his birthday from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. For the price of our daily coffee, his family will receive clean water, food and he will be able to go to school. Welcome to our family, Mechak!

    I agree, a little bit of both.

    What show is that from? When we went to Niagara Falls once, there was a show that was exactly like the Daily Show. I remember it because I couldn't figure out what anybody was laughing about.

    Hi--thanks for checking on me. All is well. And, you're right--really simple procedure. Sorry that I do not visit as much--but I will do better in the future. :)

    Congratulations to you all for the wonderful thing you are doing with World Vision. I've thought about sponsoring a child for a long time ... don't know why I haven't yet ... you've inspired me.
    Hope you have a great weekend.
    take care, Meow

    It does give one a good feeling when they know they can help others. I donate to soup kitchens.

    Hello friends...
    I hope you all have had a lovely week. Mine has flown by in a whirlwind.
