This has been a good week for us. I have heard some great ideas from some of you about what you and your family do to give back. We added Ohio Valley Voices to our daily prayers and "L's" friend who used to be a student there loved the idea.
I also took some time to sit down with the kids and we browsed some websites to generate ideas for future causes to support. "PT" knew right away what charity he wanted to support this week. However, he graciously agreed to allow me to suggest that we support Aunt Tricia. She is a mother of 3 kids, ages 3 and under (crazy too, obviously), works four days a week, and is training for a 10k as a SoulMate in support of Girls On The Run and blogs about it. She even host a "Bows and Booze" party as a fundraiser. GOTR is passionate about encouraging young girls to have positive emotional, social, mental, and physical development as they train to walk or run at a 3.1 mile event.
Now, you all know that I only run if I am being chased so I am not going to give that kind of support. We are donating to her fundraising efforts and will cheer her on. We will also being praying for good physical and emotional health for Tricia, coaches, and girls participating.
I also encourage you to check GOTR and the SoleMate program for yourself. If you would like to donate, check out the link to her blog, above.
