Sending out some Linky love.

I don't know what makes a good day or a bad day.

Heck, if I did, I'd write a book about it and title it something obviously clever like, "I know something you don't!" Then I'd be disgustingly rich and the first thing I'd buy would be pair of sexy red heels.

But I do know a good day when I see it.

And today was one of those days.

Not that the fighting or screaming or tantrums were lessened in anyway, they just didn't stick to me the way Alayna's half chewed Cheerios do.

Although, it was almost ruined while I was sitting in the Walmart parking lot, waiting for my husband to come back with a box of the coveted otter pops while the kids had their windows rolled down as they yelled at the tops of their lungs to everyone who walked by, "Hi! My name is (insert some random word, like cheese stick)."  

Then, a woman and her two kids walked in front of my car. And her pants were half way down her bum. No really, either she wasn't wearing underwear or had an invisible thong.

It was disturbing. On so many levels.

At any rate, I know I'm way behind on my blog reading, sorry peeps. I haven't had a lot of time at my computer the last few days.

But, I did stumble across a couple of things I thought I'd pass along. I hope you'll take a moment to check them all out.


First is Jocelyn's Service Boot Camp and Giveaway. It's for the Write it out Project. This project was started by an Iraq War widow to make journals for other widows so they can journal through their grief. So be sure to check that out.


Also, I know it's so scary to have a loved one deal with major surgeries or a terrible sickness, like cancer. Not only for the emotional stress, but the financial as well.

This cute little one was diagnosed with cancer, neuroblastoma

To read more about it and find out how you can help, just click HERE.


And last, but certainly not least, there is a giveaway going on HERE for the I Love Lucy Project.

This sweet girl is three-years-old, and was diagnosed last year with Bardet-Biedl Syndrome which causes blindness, obesity, and a wide array of other health issues.

Soooo what did the kids say to the lady? I'm sure they came up with sumpin' good.

The rest of your posts reminds me why we tell Heavenly Father each night how thankful we are for our health.

Walmart always has something bad or scary happening... LOL
I will drop by their blogs sometime today.

It is blogs like the ones you posted...that show some of the "hidden" blessings of BLOGS...When the brethren suggested we use the internet to further the spreading of the gospel...I do believe..."compassionate" service and a grand way for the use of our time...

All worthy causes, that's for sure.

I loved visiting Shawni's blog, and when I got reading, I followed her link to another blog where she had done a terrific interview about being Mormon. What a neat person she is.

Thanks for the links.

Serene, you really need to start packing a camera with you when you go to walmart (along with all the other stuff you probably have to haul just to make it through the day) BUT a photo on the underless wonder would have been priceless....or not.

My hubby was on his mission to London and Shawni Eyre's dad was his mission president. Shawni was just a toddler! I love her website.
I have visited the others as well.

You are a good woman I hope you know.
There was a lady in our ward that spoke last week and she said that when she was living in St. Louis that random people would stop her and ask if all those kids were hers. She would say yes. Then they would ask if she had a job. She would say "why yes, I'm a stay at home mom, I am raising your future. Don't you hope I do a good job?"
Just so ya know I immediately thought of you. I think you are doing a great job.
