I love Thursday nights! It's my favorite night of the week. The day before Friday, lots of TV - we usually have a little TV date night! Tonight I'm cooking steaks and we are going to just relax! I'm so excited!
I have so much going on in my head.............we are leaving Monday morning for El Salvador and I'm so excited! It is going to be an amazing trip and I will be blogging daily and I want to share with you and make you feel like you are right there with me! If possible - I plan to twitter also so if you want to follow me - my user name is kellyskorner. (Real imaginative, huh?) Please pray for our trip! I'll give you more detailed prayer requests on Sunday. I have so much to get ready before we leave - yikes! I have to get busy.
Just a couple of notes and then I'm off to enjoy my night:
- There is a little boy named Noah is who probably not going to live until Christmas - he has cancer. His family is celebrating Christmas this week with him and he has requested that people send him Christmas Cards. We can all do that, huh? So go HERE and read more about it and if you have an extra card maybe from last year - send it. Let's FLOOD their mail box and make that little boy happy!
- There is also a 13 year old girl name Lauren Smith who also was told she would not live until Christmas - she has bone cancer. They have a site set up for her with all kinds of things you can do for - fundraisers for her family or just prayer sites. Go visit and see if you can encourage or help. Pray for a miracle above all else.
- I wrote recently about a young mother, Danielle Cripe, who was told she would not live until the end of the year and who has two children - one with special needs. There is an update you can read HERE. They still need our prayers and support if you would go visit them and share with others.
One more thing - the prayer blog for women waiting on husbands and children has been up for right around a year. I just looked and there have been 132 praises of pregnancies and adoptions (that includes 4 that I know about that aren't posted yet) and 12 of those are TWINS!
(And I would like to add that I'm sad we don't have any praises on the husband part (or that I know of - if you are engaged and on that list - you better write me soon!) but that can take more time than those who are actively trying to have a baby). So I'm patiently waiting but I know we will be blessed with praises on that list too!)
