WOW--MONDAY ALREADY!!!

 

 

 

 

 

I really do not have anything to write about. I have been taking the meds that I just got refilled and my body is still trying to readjust..they make me very tired. So I am just taking things one step at a time.

Just as a side note: When my daughter first started this new high school..that first week, her English teacher asked the class if they would like to sponsor a child for Christmas. Well my daughter's hand went up in the air faster then the teacher could blink...the sad part is that my daughter was the only one. The teacher took that as a vote from the class that no one was interested and left it at that...

My daughter went up to her after class and told her how upset she was that they class is not going to get involved. Well my daughter apparently tore the teacher's heart up after her lil speech and the teacher said that her and my daughter can adopt a lil kid and they will spoil them. So they got a 4 year old girl. Now there has got to be a space about 5 feet by 5 feet and piled hip high on all the stuff the lil girl is getting. My daughter is so thrilled. I am so proud of her for sticking to her guns and sticking up for what she believes..that kid has such a heart...I am so blessed.

So of course she spent her hard earned money and bought this lil girl whatever she thought of. WOW...I do not think I was ever like that. She is such her own person. My boys were not like that either.

Well I just thought I would share that bit of news...tomorrow they get to wrap all the gifts for the lil girl so we are fishing out all of my christmas wrapping paper. I hope you all have a MARVELOUS monday..

PEACE!!!

What a wonderful thing your daughter is doing!  I've always wanted to do that but, have always been to broke.  ::sigh:: I do donate a toy or two to Toys for Tots, it's the best I can do.  Anyway, you should be proud of your daughter, as I know you are. :-)

Yes, Ellie, you have a great girl. Bless her heart! Just make sure she does not get so caught up with helping others that she forgets to take care of her own needs. Your girl reminds me of me. I grew up to be a social worker but I had to quit when I realized that I am so other centered that I fostered codependency in my clients. I am starting on a new job next month. It still involves helping others but I only get to help them get a job and the case will be closed. I can't be a part of an ongoing case because I spend my salary in buying my client's groceries, paying their utilities and getting them whatever they need. Helping gives me a warm fuzzy feeling and it's addictive! http://journals.aol.com/dcmeyer420/DearDiary/
