You all know that I do my monthly Volunteer work at our provincial hospitals- it's such a small way of giving back to the community ( all it takes is a bit of my time), and it makes me realise and be thankful for what I have and receive on a daily basis. We take so much for granted each day ( oh it's only human- LOL) and forget that there are others out there that are hungry, starving or just dying lonely. Don't get me wrong- I'm the FIRST one to complain at the end of the month when money is short and quick to say * I'm BROKE*- EEEEEK, but I look in the food cupboard and it's still got food in it- or the fridge still has milk in it ( sour or not-LOL). And it just takes that ONE day to realise that NO- I'm NOT BROKE or short of anything- I can still put food on the table and eat, have a roof over my head, shoes on my feet and have a family to hug each day.- I'm LOADED people!!
And I suppose you are all wondering where all this is leading right?- HAHA,
Crystal Longbrake approached me last month about donating some items for kits that were being sold ONLY FOR CHARITY- Goodness, now that I CAN DO- and jumped in to give my little bit-.
This months kit ( and there are two- a girls (JILL) and a boys (JACK)- is being sold for Wish for Dream Foundation.
I think this touched home for me as we have the foundation here too and while nursing my MA with Leukaemia , we got to see a lot of young children going through the same process's she was. IT'S HARD!! And the foundation used to bring a little HOPE and fun into these children's lives . Some never got to go out and had people they wanted to see visit them in the hospital( Mandela for instance- or TV personality's) - it just made their faces shine! So check them out here.
And I did another LO too- WOOOHOOOO! I am SO enjoying creating LO's again -
I just loved the picture- it was sort of moody and Waynes clothes matched the sea and sand.
And this one is of my little sister Kerry- I used Bonnies Stealing Beauty kit,
I tried to get a *picture in a picture* here with Kerry in a daydream- not sure if I achieved it exactly as I wanted it- but I liked the finished result.
OH my gosh people- just on a funnier note- Don't EVER dance the night away in someone else's boots, holding your stomach IN- I CAN"T MOVE_ WAHAHAHAHAHA, I swear, if I cough I want to CRY- when I sneeze I think I am DEAD- and if I bend over and stand up again I look like I'm 105!!! ROTFLMAO- my friend Loryn wore STILLETTO BOOTS to Deons farewell and by 12am couldn't WALK as her feet were burning so much- so what does Kim do- yeah you guessed it- I take MY WEDGE heel boots off and SWOP with her(we wear the same size)- so she can at least dance- WAHAHAHAHAHA, my feet weren't sore- but OMG- I'm feeling the effects everywhere ELSE - lesson learnt- remind friends to wear comfi DANCING SHOES- LOL
Until tomorrow- hugs and Loves Kim
