Heart Broken

Hi there all. I am heart broken today. No not by Jeff and my family. I am recieving a documentary about the kids in Kenya sometime in the next couple of weeks and I just got an e-mail from the lady that is doing the documentary.

She e-mailed me and told me she had posted the documentary and it should be here in about two weeks and I e-mailed her back thanking her and wishing her well and she told me its not well over there right now. She has misbudgeted for X-mas where the kids dont get a X-mas dinner. I thought my life was bad until I read her e-mail. Its so sad. I wish I had a thousand dollars to send over for a dinner for 100 kids and maybe some presents for those children but I dont.

Maybe next year when Taxes come back I can help out more. Or am I just wishing. Jeff and I arent going to have alot left this year after taxes because of somethings that need taking care of.

But I was feeling sorry for myself last week as you all read and now I get this e-mail and I realize just how much better I have it than those kids do over there. I mean most of them have lost there parents to Aids and some of them may even have Aids themselves. Its so sad ot hear about. I am thankful I live in a country that has hospitals and medical assistance if you need it and other such services.

Life is too short to be sad but you all have had a rough time and gave me plenty to do look up to when it comes to getting small things for the girls. I even have Jeff hyped up about my selling my crafts here. I have a new item to add to my list of afhgans. I made a scarf and headband set over the weekend. Its pretty neat really. I will post them later. I need to go get some cleaning done but I just wanted to talk about Nwamba.

She takes care of about twenty children in the Orphanage. She is the one doing the documentary. She seems like a very sweet person. I will let you all know what I think of the documentary when I recieve it and watch it. Well off to start my cleaning. Have a wonderful day my friends.

I wish that I could help, too. We are able to give a couple of things to the 'giving tree' at church this year. The girls love to do that kind of stuff. They are small things but I think that everyone who can donate even a small thing it turns out to be a lot of stuff for needy people.

Nicole - it is amazing how well we live in the USA. Even my family, which could be considered close to poverty level, we have everything we need and more. I am so thankful for that. I tell the girls, too. It's horrible what human beings are enduring in many parts of the world.

We are so fortunate and blessed.

We do tend to get wrapped up in our lives and forget that we have so much to be thankful for, don't we?

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Tweetey. I had a few minutes to visit, but no time to post. Just wanted to come by and see what you're up to! :)

Jeannie it will be sad. I got the cd with Photo's yesterday. There were only two that I could tell. I am going to have Jeff look to see if there is more.

Monica its so true. I wanted to donate a toy this year but we just dont have it even with me making afghans and small things.

Gayle thanks for stopping and understand about posting. You have a good thanksgiving also and we will catch up on Monday when you have time again.

I would like to see the documentary.

I have a friend who has an orphanage in Kenya as well. She & her husband started by taking in boys off the street and teaching them mechanics. Now they, well, her - (he died way too early - just worked so hard, wore himself down to cancer) have a building for girls. They also adopted two Kenyan babies - but they are growing up now. I have so much admiration for what they've done.
