Hello Friends. I know it’s been quite a while since we’ve had a visit. What can I say? I totally dropped the ball on this blogging thing after participating in Nester’s 31 Days Challenge. Honestly, it wasn’t because I was burnt out, or tired of writing, but rather, it was so much easier to write when I knew what I was going to write about each day. The 31 Days gave me focus; they gave me a schedule; and they challenged me to be consistent with my posting. When October ended, I struggled to keep my momentum going. On top of that, life in my little corner of the world has decided to get super busy – as in I’m swamped at work and just want to come home and enjoy my family time instead of writing … sorry, sort of. I’m sorry I’ve left you hanging, but I’m not sorry for the family time 😉 I’m hoping to sit down over the Thanksgiving Holiday and create a plan for this space – one where I can have a schedule that allows for both writing and life living.
Anyway, as I jump back into things today, I found a wonderful surprise at my mailbox – one that quickly brought a smile to my face.
My oldest Compassion Sponsor Child, Josué, has had his photo updated. I saw it update a couple of weeks ago in my online account, but I forgot that Compassion would be mailing me a hard copy of the photo, too. It was the perfect “boost” to my day.
I swear this boy is growing like a weed – just look how tall he’s gotten. I told my Dad that, and he looked at me and said, “How can you tell he’s so tall?” My response: “You’re kidding, right? Just look at him – He’s got to be at least 6 ft tall!”
Also, apparently skinny jeans are popular everywhere…..sigh.
I can’t wait to meet him next September – only 1 month and 9 days until registration for the Sponsor Tour to Ecuador opens, and clearly, I’m counting down the days.
Did you get any good mail today?
Also, today is the last day of national collection week for Operation Christmas Child. If you haven’t already dropped off your shoe boxes, you can click on the banner below to find a drop off location near you.
