Hunger and a Giveaway

karen is one generous blogger, isn't she?

i'm having trouble getting into the season!
i can't shake the woes of the haitians, etc. etc. 
makes my decorating and cooking feel ...
like a waste i guess. 

people are suffering and i'm eating fudge???
my kids have everything. 
their worst problem is that the power might go off 
before they reach the next level of their
video game.

(i can hear someone say "well jump on a plane then")
i really would like to (i think)
i've seen blogs of people who are there... (it is not for the weak of heart)
and read about babies who can't get milk from women 
who didn't get water today. 
i read about a set of 6 week old twins who are starving.
i'm praying hard for them
and donating too. 
money...not milk ;)
but it is an overwhelming thing these givers are doing,
going places like that and forfeiting
comfort and joy in america
*and other countries*
to go and bless in poverty stricken, dirty places
(what a blissful post this is!!!)
they are being obedient and will be 
blessed for their giving! 
let's lift them up and ask God for stamina 
and supplies for them...
and those they are serving.
it would be awful to have an empty belly for sure...
but to not be able to fill your child's belly???

i wanted to ask for your help actually today
on another subject :) 
i KNOW there has to be some used mp3's of any sort
out there...
and i want to spend $15 or less...
i haven't found this situation online anywhere,
but feel it is a reasonable request. 
do any of you have old ones to sell? 
i'll need the chargers too. 
a couple of teenagers that go to camp
each year watch the other kids with 
their iPods, etc. and i think
they would like their own. 
You.
Are.
Awesome :) 

maybe next time you come by here...it will be a little more
blissful :) 

p.s.
i want to share a pet peeve...
the song
"let it snow" HA! go figure...
well it plays like, round the clock in malls and on 
the radio starting the day after halloween.
it rarely ever snows here until after christmas.
1)it isn't a christmas song
2)"since we have no place to go"???

i am counting how many times i hear it...i should have 
a tally after the gifts are all opened. 
what is your guess? 
who said GIVEAWAY just now? LOL! 
Okay! 
drop a number on me and i'll award someone on Dec. 26th if 
you remind me! 

hugs!
