Good Morning all.
This will be a quick post, but I wanted to share some Compassion news with you.
I have already mentioned the Blogging Trip to Uganda, and I must admit I was at first sceptical when I heard of it, thinking that surely it would be better to spend the money of helping the children, instead of flying over to see them. But I was wrong, and the power of the message from those bloggers should not be underestimated.
To give you a sample of how lives are being changed, read any of the blogs, but if you have a moment please watch this video by Ragamuffin Soul, of the meeting of Shannon (Rocks in my Dryer Blog) with her sponsored child Dissan.
You can read Shannon’s perspective on the meeting here.
We too have decided to sponsor a little girl called Fiona from Uganda, and my daughters are very excited to write to her, and learn more of her life.
Are you being challenged by this too? If so, go HERE for more information.
On to other news, we now have TEN blog readers who have now voted on why they visit here (it is on the right of this blog) and the majority are here as they are interested in “life here in Northern Ireland”, so I plan to include some more details in upcoming blog posts. (Can you bear the excitement and anticipation!?!).
Thanks for all the lovely comments on my blinkie. If you wish to grab it and add it to your blog (yes, someone actually asked me if they could!!) please drop me an email, and I would be delighted to pass it on.
Don’t forget the Ultimate Blog Party 2008, with a chance to win some great prizes and be introduced to some wonderful blogs. It all happens from 7 – 14 March, so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out.
Finally, if you have made it as far as here, thanks for sticking with me, and you may want to view some new photos on my photoblog HERE
