A beautiful life

A friend of mine sent me the link to a truly amazing blog.  Reading about this incredible young woman's life and how she is making a difference, a true difference, brought me to tears and to my knees!!  Please go here to read about her God driven mission in life, her life at 22 years old!!!!  It took my breath away! 

I also was moved to order one of the necklaces made by the women that she is helping.  They make and them sell in order to feed their children! 

Please go here to order one and help these beautiful women.  Once again, I am blown away by the depth of love and courage found in regular, ordinary human beings!  I wish we would hear more about these incredible souls on our nightly news.  I choose to believe that we are more than an "American Idol" society and that more of us would be moved to acts of selfless giving if we were more aware of the amazingness that surrounds us every day, from regular, ordinary human beings!!!

I also wanted to let you know that I am taking a little break to spend some much needed time with my children and my hubby!!!! 

Woo Hoo!!!! I'm gonna unplug for a while but will be back soon!!!



  1. hope u have a fun and relaxing time. I'll check out that site too!

  2. Have fun on your vacation from your blog! Enjoy your hubby and kids!


  3. My SIL gave me one of these necklaces last Christmas. They are beautiful!!!

  4. Wow. She is truly doing amazing things in Uganda!!! Just, wow. Thank for the link. I will definitely pick up a necklace (and follow Katie's blog now)!
