The Challenge For Charity

ABC Wednesday, charity, children's cause
Charity for Children's Cause
It's the third week of round 20 of ABC Wednesday. This week's letter is the letter C.

A word that comes to mind is the word challenge, particularly the challenge to benefit a cause or charity for children.


I'm picking out a challenge  to inspire me to push myself to fitness. I am joining a 7-day challenge from my Facebook group. We are a bunch of ladies who would like to inspire each other to eat well and exercise. This group is lead by Kate. You can ask to be added to this closed group here. 

Other words that are in my mind are charity and cause that I use interchangeably. This time around, I am raising funds for The World Fit For Children (or teens). I sync my Fitbit steps to it to count towards my goals/miles.

Others can help by donating for the participants or walkers like me. The funds go directly to the cause. I am thinking, my fitness activity will help me meet my challenge and goals of donating to the cause of my choice. That's hitting two birds with one stone!

My child, of course, is always on my mind. Her name starts with the letter C too. I encouraged her to try to join the youth group for 7-12th graders in our new church (non-denominational) which Sunday mass we both like. She went with her friend tonight so I was hoping she has at least one person she knows.

Well, they asked me to pick them up early. They did not feel welcome there. Nobody sat with them and they felt unfit to be there. Oh well. They tried. They still want to go to the same church for Sunday mass so that's okay.

What can I say? At least they checked the youth group out.

And then I asked, “Does that mean you are not going to their pizza pool party next week?”

“I'm not sure. Maybe I will.”

Hmm . . .

  2. One of our main charity outreaches at church is HOPE HOUSE, a refuge for girls in sex trafficking. Our city sits smack dab in the middle of the country and is a large hub for this despicable trade.

Charity and The Garden of Gods

The alphabet this week is the letter C. What words inspire you to write? Today, I am thinking of:

CharityClimbCanChurchChoosingChangesChoiceCharity MilesChildContribution This statement from church sticks to my mind this week. God wants us to want what he wants.

Is that like I want my teens to want what I want not simply do what I say without putting their heart into it? You betcha.

I'd like them to do good for themselves, nourish, not harm--their brain, body, and soul. I'd like them to put focus in school and pick good friends. I'd like them to be, someday, self-sufficient, and be helpful members of the society.

God wants us to helps ourselves so we can be of help to others. God wants us to be generous. It's only last Saturday, that I was convinced I should give more to charity andchurch. The right time in my definition will never come as I would probably never be satisfied with my income and expenses. But God wants me to give to others. In my preference, it would be …

Forcing Myself to Express Gratitude

Hello. Hello. Here I am again this week. Back with a thankful post, I did not feel like writing.

My oldest child (18) surprised me with an old car he bought a few days ago--a Dodge Stratus 2003, sedan, with a sportsy look. Never mind the paint that needs to be redone. That is just cosmetics. But the windshield has cracks in two spots. In addition, the front tires are bald, and the first time he introduced it to me, it did not even start.

"Oh, I must have left a light on."

Maybe.

The car is operable again but I am still nervous. He was supposed to work today at 4 pm, I thought. At 3:45 pm, I got hold of him. He was about to drive from a park to home. He said he'd go home to change his shoes before work. Half an hour later, I could not concentrate. My head is hurting and I was almost certain he got into some kind of trouble.

He came home for a couple minutes. He seemed OK. He works at 4:30 pm, he said. I wished he would have told me earlier.

Communication. We need to talk…

Amazon Fresh Review

The letter of the week from ABC Wednesday is the letter A. For the lack of ideas, I am writing about the new (to me) grocery delivery service through  Amazon called Amazon Fresh. I promise I am not getting paid by Amazon for writing this post.

How timely is that that I have just received my first grocery today with Amazon Fresh. What did I order? See the picture below including five grocery items not included.




Here is a review based on my first try with Amazon Fresh Grocery Delivery by Amazon in Denver, Colorado.
Pros:

One advantage of using the service is the convenience. I ordered online without having to walk the isles of the store and standing in line waiting for the cashier. The groceries are delivered right to my front door--kinda like the Uber or Lyft for my groceries. This service can attract home-bound adults, busy folks, or some people with transportation issues, like, maybe college students who do not have a car. I am thinking I can do this to friends who are sick or old who…
