The Gift of Giving

Happy Tuesday everyone! Some exciting news....I registered for my last semester of college yesterday! After I finish the last 4 weeks of this semester, I only have 4 classes left! I cannot wait to be done, I have really struggled with motivation these past couple months! Now I can only hope and pray I find a job afterwards!

So today is challenge day. The challenge was to do something to support a cause or issue you really care about. This was easy for me because it is the season of giving. I have always loved to give to others, it makes me feel good.  There are a couple different things going on at the school I work at. One is called Making Spirits Bright. They are collecting items for families in need. The other is a food drive. The kids have been working so hard to raise 500lbs of food for the the upcoming holiday. I donated some money to a fund to help my co worker re-purchase her Thanksgiving meal. She had boughten it, but lost power from the storm this past weekend and it all went bad. She isn't able to afford to buy another meal, so my co workers and I are raising money to help buy her family another Thanksgiving dinner. 




I am halfway done with the ten weeks of challenges now! I have to say they really have expanded my horizon and made things fun and interesting! The new challenge is: Eat or drink something that brings you back to childhood memories! What were some of your favorite foods when you were younger? Should be fun :)
