I have been painting...
Last week my friend, RJ, and I had this discussion. We tend to do that frequently. She claimed that me giving up a latte' for lent is really no big deal. "So what," she says. "There are so many substitutes for everything we eat that giving up food is no big sacrifice. Now give up a kidney? That's a sacrifice."
So, I said I agree. Rare....I agree with her! And no, I'm not giving up a kidney. Although I don't think she realizes my addiction to latte's....I did want one so bad last week while I was painting. So, I stopped and got a COFFEE instead. I topped it off with cream, AND whipped cream, and it was strong but it did the trick. So she's right. Think about it...you give up sugar but you can replace it with stevia, splenda, sweet and low, etc.
So, here's what I'm going to do. I have decided that I am going to take the money I would have spent on the latte's, and buy myself some yarn! KIDDING!
I'm going to donate it. And from the looks of things in my sidebar, it's up to about 25.00.
I am going to donate $10.00 to an organization that Rebekah Teal, the City Farmgirl, is promoting. I'll do another post on it.
I'm going to donate the rest to someone I know who I think can probably use it. I don't really KNOW this person. I've never met her in person. I'll do another post on my opinion about donating too! That should be fun for y'all!!! In the meantime, think about donating. If every person donated the amount of one latte' (or pick your own addiction) to this person, think of the difference us bloggers could make. 5 bucks and a stamp.
