If you prefer not to read my personal junked up mess LOL!! Go to the bottom of this post and please read about how TRUE and SWEET and WONDERFUL and KIND others can be when the need arrives in a Bloggers life for some HELP!!!
Let me share a little of why I feel that way, I myself do not have friends, In that I mean those that I spend time with, visit with on the phone etc. someone to go shopping with to laugh and enjoy good times with. I am a loner so to speak, I have not always been this way, when I was a single person, and working a job, I had lots of friends. I just made a move away from them all, met and married my hubby and since then I Have not had friends to visit with go places with, share with etc.
BUT I am blessed with many online friends, and I truly feel that, I have had so many emails lately as to where I have been and how am I. Yes I have been silent recently, Life just sometimes throws us those curve balls, YEP the ones that hit you in the face and HURT!! But hey I am okay I am a strong person, and I refuse to let anyone's hateful ways ruin that for me, so how do you handle things? Do you fly off the handle get upset, let things provoke you to a point of blurting it out? I don't, sometimes I think it would help. But I know it won't change things, so I will not share and say things I will regret later. I will contain myself and get over it LOL.
A very Wise and Sweet lady once told me *If you have nothing kind to say it is best not to say anything at all* And *If you allow someone to get you down, someone to tear your heart up, then you can only Blame one person and that is YOURSELF*
Just recently, and I will confess that I all too well know the worry that our blogging Friend is encountering right now. One Blogger spoke out for a little help, and I admire her, she is a Sweet gal and she so deserves some assistance. So another blogger started a Silent Auction, Please go over to Traci's blog
*****CLICK HERE***** Several other bloggers have jumped in with donations to help as well, There is a wonderful group of Items to be won by the highest bidder, But above that the satisfaction of knowing that you are purchasing the items and all of the funds will go to Help Someone!! And if you have never known that feeling that unselfish feeling of doing something to benefit someone elses needs, Oh I can not describe how wonderful it is. I could not bid when I saw the post because funds are extremely tight for me right now, as I am sure that most of you are experiencing as well with Christmas.
If you can not bid, no problem but you can share you can get the word out to many others that may not see it otherwise, that in itself is a way to contribute to the need. So please do go to ****York Mountain primitives**** And share the link with everyone you know. I have donated a handmade item myself for the cause, and my contribution is small but full of LOVE
And while you are out with you last minute running that last stressful weekend to purchase a gift, do me a favor, If you only throw a few pennies in the red buckets at stores, those add up. Or if you see a family that looks like they could really use some love at this time of the year, Stop and consider how fortunate you are, I see so many complain about funds and how tight things are, that share all the time all the purchases that they make, That have Christmas Trees with several gifts under them, if you have never experienced a Christmas without gifts, A week without funds for groceries etc. A need to go for medical care with no insurance and no money *Only to be shunned at a doctors office* then you are truly a Blessed person.
Because many of these folks that are hurting so bad, many that do not know what or how they will get by,
They still believe in HOPE they still have FAITH and many of them never complain!!
No KIND gesture, even to say Merry Christmas to a STRANGER, no simple ACT of kindness can measure up more then in the heart of someone who honestly needs!!! A True gift is not wrapped in fancy packaging a TRUE gift is not Tied with a pretty bow, A True gift costs no money
A True gift is a simple act of kindness that may lift the spirits of someone who is hurting
Sorry this is long and I am babbling on, wishing you all a Wonderful Weekend
