Okay, so I have never actually even seen a beaver in real life, other than Leave it to Beaver, but from my understanding beavers are known for being well, busy. That being said, boy oh boy do I feel like a beaver.
I have a post I never had time to finish over the weekend and I completely forgot I had set it to auto post Monday morning . . . still haven’t finished it btw (Sorry Melba). And I totally “slacked” Monday/Tuesday getting anything posted. Looks like I may start working on quality over quantity.
Passing blame sucks, but a ‘sick’ husband does occupy your time. So do things like school, work, homework, projects and sweet little puppy dogs. But as cute, sweet and snuggly as they all are. I have shit to do. This is the part of the semester where tests are showing up in all of my classes and where I simultaneously get swamped at work. It never fails I tell you it is almost as though retail and the education system are in cahoots. Although I know this is not the case, sometimes when I’m busting my tail, it really feels that way and all I want to do is curl up with a puppy dog or two.
While getting things done is really my biggest worry at the moment, in essence of keeping up with Sevenly.Org, Children in Darfur have so much more to worry about. My problems, if you can even call them that are really just petty and insignificant worries and more deadlines. Sure, I would love to have more time, but what would I do with it? Procrastinate? Maybe.
I am lucky to have been born in a country where people, for the most part, worry about simple things. Certainly we leave our own out in the cold to die, but even the poorest of our poor does not compare to the children starving in underdeveloped countries such as Darfur. And if these children are lucky to find food, will they be lucky enough to survive the genocide?
What should you know about this weeks T?
- It is SUPER cute
- It will provide 35 meals to a starving child in Darfur
- It could be the difference between living or dying for a child in Darfur
If they are given the chance and these children live to see our compassion, maybe then will the genocide end. For some reason the people of Darfur have always had a special place in my heart. “Never Again” says the U.N. the biggest joke if I ever heard one. You will not be able to stop the genocide today, but you can make sure that a child does not go hungry. Just one shirt provides 35 meals and if you’re really just that into ending world hunger, check out Free Rice while you’re at it. You don’t get an awesome T-Shirt or anything, but you do get extra knowledge and knowledge is POWER.
Until next time . . .
