It always seems like I think of great, amazing, truly literary ideas for blog posts... when I'm far away from any computer or time to blog. By the time I get to the computer, I've either forgotten it entirely or I just am not getting it right: "Didn't it have something to do with trees? I mean, I thought about it while I was... wait, where did the first inspiration come from? If I could remember that maybe I'd get it back.... Ahhhh!!! Stupid brain. Okay, guess it wasn't meant to be... what should I write about?"
Also, there comes the time when I know what I want to write about, and it's so good but I know that right now, I can't give it credit. So I sit on it for the coming day when I can really expound on the awesome idea, and write a post that touches you, and makes you think, and doesn't just you know, come out of left field.
So today, I'm just doing a post I want to do to help out a bloggy friend. She has no idea I'm doing this, which makes it more fun. I hope something good comes from it, but that's up to you. If you glance over at the list of blogs I follow (which isn't actually complete, I never update it and I've added many since last time) you'll see that there's a lot of adoption blogs in the mix. This is because I want to be an adoptive mommy someday. Plus, I just tend to read mom blogs, even though I'm not a mom, because I want to be one and someday I plan on joining their midst.
So one of the blogs I read is the blog of a mom who is in the midst of the adoption process, to bring home a child from Taiwan, her Adelyn. After prayer, she and her husband have decided to have one final adoption fundraiser, and leave the rest to God. She's got wonderful friends who have donated lots of really cool things, ranging from diamond rings to coasters to gift cards, $3,000 in total value.
Her fundraiser ends the the 9th. (Friday)
Please go and contribute a little, if you can. I'm sure it'll make her Christmas. And maybe you'll win one of her really cool prizes. Help her bring her daughter home, and also let's show her God shows up.
Her fundraiser is here, and more about why she and her husband decided to only do one fundraiser is here. I really admire her faith and obedience.
I don't know this woman in "real life" at all. But that's the awesome thing about the blogosphere, you come to care for a network of 'friends' you'd otherwise never have met.
