CLEAN water!

as i was reminded again last night
by those tiny wet footprints fresh out of the BATH…
we… are truly BLESSED.

those footprints represent so many children…
that today need clean water to simply SURVIVE.
4500 mothers bury their children EVERY DAY due to contaminated water.
not by choice… they simply do not have access to clean water like we do.

today... November 13... 
is a chance to do a small part…
by buying clean water
.
clean life saving water.

being able to give today… to such an important cause
is A PART…  ONE WAY… of sharing in the blessings that we have been given.

and let me say… it feels good knowing… 
with all the hustle & bustle of the season settling in…
all the worry of “did i get the right thing” for this or that person…
the first gift we purchased…
it WAS the RIGHT gift… the perfect GIFT!

i am just glad that Meg shined a light on Jody and her beautiful mission.
there are SO many great causes… SO many ways that we can show God’s love.
i just knew for me… this was ONE way to reach out from my mommy box
and do a little SOMETHING… right NOW!
