"Take an action each day that alleviates suffering in the world. Bring light into darkness."
-Angeles Arrien

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
--Mother Teresa

We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other

Just sent out this email and wanted to include it here. Tonight we will know who the winner of the stroller is. Can't wait.

I will be closing out the stroller giveaway/fundraiser, to build a house for a needy family in Vietnam , as soon as the kids go to bed tonight (They are not early birds). I will then announce the winner on my blog and email them. I will be leaving the chipin link open until then if anybody else is interested in contributing or participating. I am $150 away from my goal so any contributions would really be greatly appreciated. I again want to thank all of who have contributed and helped spread the word. Please follow this link and click chipin: http://wwwjourneytoourdestiny.blogspot.com/2009/05/not-over-yet-new-link.html

The President of the organization who is building the house says he can pick a family on his trip to Vietnam in the next few weeks and completion of the house usually takes 4-6 weeks. I am so thrilled to hear this. I will then posts pictures of the completed house on my blog. Seems like my timing is just right. I kept wondering why I felt this need to do this right now when my life is already so hectic raising the twins and my other 3 children; now I know. Isn't it amazing that such a small amount, by US standards, can build a house in Vietnam and change a whole families future?
