I used to think I never won anything, then I started blogging and since then I feel like I have received far more than I have given out. This year it has been my intention to give something away on my blog every month - for April the things I was giving away came with a requirement - a donation to unfolding hope. Stay tuned for May's giveaway.
Thanks to people's generous giving we will be able to provide - 'a
sewing machine, spare parts, and materials to a Sudanese women's
co-operative that helps former slaves earn a sustainable living'. Doesn't that make you feel awesome????? If you still want to donate you have time.
This week I have loved the time I have spent with the world's most rapid question asker.
I heard a study that said the average toddler/ pre-schooler asks 300
questions a day - he is definitely above average in this capacity! But
oh so sweet.
I test Flip on his spelling words I usually say the word, then say it
in a sentence, and then say the word again - last night Bounce decided
to do the sentences for each word. My favourite was: 'Best', 'S is my
best brother'. Bless him.
also loved watching Flip run in the school cross-country last week. He
is one of those kids that is a great finisher - he doesn't seem very
competitive (unlike his mother) but he competes with such a beautiful
attitude and he LOVES the crowds cheering him on (he got that from me). I
love that he takes part with joyfulness and finishes what he begins. I think his favourite bit was high-fiving people on the way up the last leg (not concerned about his time).
I've loved parcels in the mail - including this from lovely Megan and knowing I have a very generous voucher to spend at the gorgeous, feminine and well-priced Sailor Spy (check it out click on 'shop' at the top, such lovely clothes).
and making 'tropical delight' with my boys for afternoon teas - mmmmmm and healthy too - just fruit in the blender, nothing added.
and friends who rescue you when you discover your car has a flat
battery and you have a child who needs collecting - yes loving those
friends! especially when they load you up with feijoas to boot.
Joining in with 2 lovely collections of people embracing gratefulness as a lifestyle.
What's your 'best' this week?
