Spirit of Christmas award

Shannon, at GabisWorld has gifted me with a very special award. It is the Spirit of Christmas award.

This award is for those who talk about and show the spirit of Christmas in their blogs.

What is the Spirit of Christmas you ask?

Quite simply it is those that have a generous and giving nature. Those who care about others. Those who have a kind word to say or a broad shoulder to lean on in the times that others need that. Those who display the "Spirit of Christmas".

Please pass this on to someone that has touched your heart with their kind and giving and caring nature.

The code that you need to place of your blog and the one that you pass on is available HERE on Santa's very own blog:

Shannon, thanks for thinking of me. As you know, I am trying hard to keep some publicity on Reece's Rainbow's Christmas Angels program.

I would also like to ask for your prayers regarding some local families who we are trying to help this Christmas, as well. We have picked 4-5 families to help, and then last night I heard from the Fire Department Auxilliary (with whom I am working to identify and help families) that there was a request for aid from another family. Twin 8 yr olds, asking only for "a space heater for our cold room". Obviously, the FD cant get them a space heater, the liability would be astronomical. But that doesnt mean we cant help. I have put out an all call for folks to help weatherize their old trailer. Pray that someone comes through on that with men and materials to keep 2 little ones warm this winter? I cant explain much more, but I will tell you that one of the kids has the voice of an angel, and if it werent for poverty, would likely be looking at voice coaches and a real shot at a future. I made a short video of her singing at a school concert. Please send up a prayer that they will be warm this year.

Anyway, passing this special torch to these deserving bloggers:

Cindy at Our Life, a fellow Mainer. Her blog is a respite for me, the music and the words, the pictures...they all remind me to see the world through the eyes of my children. I love to go there just for the calming music and the aura, as I told her last week she must be a great hostess in real life, because her blog is warm and fuzzy and comforting. Go, visit.

Meredith at Cornish Adoption Journey for sacrificing her own fundraising to help others, and for wanting to give Christmas to every orphan in the world.

Shellie at Life As Household 6 who tirelessly works for kids with DS. Her new son Xander is a lucky boy indeed. I have enjoyed watching their story unfold in bits and pieces.

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net( no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso.
