It's a girl!

I was sitting here counting my blessings and I found I have a surplus of 'em.
For a long time now I have prayed for people in need around the world.
I am not a religious person. I don't make judgments on religious people or non religious people. It's all good. I am just a spiritual person. My prayers and concerns of late have been concentrating on children in Africa. Today I took a big step for me. I got off my ass and did something for one child in Africa. I sponsored a girl in Senegal through World Vision.
Hey, this makes her my first child! That is just sinking in for me...
Ok I know that is a drop in the bucket towards helping the world. It's something I can just barely afford but, I hope it will be a blessing to that little girl, her family and her community.
It makes it more blessings back at me for making me feel good about it. So now I have even more blessings to share.
If you want to look into doing this, Google : Foster Parents Plan or World Vision, both are good.

be supportive

I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. I have been thinking about it for so long. It's so simple to do.

Thank you Andysgirl. My Mother has sponsored three children over the years. Other family members are also sponsors. I don't know why I did not step up before this point.
