The Challenge For Charity

ABC Wednesday, charity, children's cause
Charity for Children's Cause
It's the third week of round 20 of ABC Wednesday. This week's letter is the letter C.

A word that comes to mind is the word challenge, particularly the challenge to benefit a cause or charity for children.


I'm picking out a challenge  to inspire me to push myself to fitness. I am joining a 7-day challenge from my Facebook group. We are a bunch of ladies who would like to inspire each other to eat well and exercise. This group is lead by Kate. You can ask to be added to this closed group here. 

Other words that are in my mind are charity and cause that I use interchangeably. This time around, I am raising funds for The World Fit For Children (or teens). I sync my Fitbit steps to it to count towards my goals/miles.

Others can help by donating for the participants or walkers like me. The funds go directly to the cause. I am thinking, my fitness activity will help me meet my challenge and goals of donating to the cause of my choice. That's hitting two birds with one stone!

My child, of course, is always on my mind. Her name starts with the letter C too. I encouraged her to try to join the youth group for 7-12th graders in our new church (non-denominational) which Sunday mass we both like. She went with her friend tonight so I was hoping she has at least one person she knows.

Well, they asked me to pick them up early. They did not feel welcome there. Nobody sat with them and they felt unfit to be there. Oh well. They tried. They still want to go to the same church for Sunday mass so that's okay.

What can I say? At least they checked the youth group out.

And then I asked, “Does that mean you are not going to their pizza pool party next week?”

“I'm not sure. Maybe I will.”

Hmm . . .

  2. One of our main charity outreaches at church is HOPE HOUSE, a refuge for girls in sex trafficking. Our city sits smack dab in the middle of the country and is a large hub for this despicable trade.

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Raking Leaves

It is October and the weather and color of early Fall show some hints here in Colorado. I try to create some beauty around me to share with family and friends and use nature and circumstances as instruments of creativity.  I have many things to be grateful for. Here is my list. My son and family came to visit with his family. I have this backdrop in the backyard for them. He showed the kids how to rake and help clean up in the backyard to which his little boy made a face * I am not raking the leaves because you ask me to* kind of attitude.  Grandson later did it when not asked. :) We are still receiving unexpected wedding gifts even when we did not have a reception.  I am thankful for all the gifts and best wishes. Wally the dog earns his certificate for dog training 101 (online).  I thank him and the trainer for the video training. He learned to close the door, "stay" longer, and be better with "leave it." Human dad Paul is teasing us that we bought Wally's dip

Kauai Vacation

Kauai vacation pictures outdoors Paul and I are lucky enough to go out of the mainland and visit Hawaii's Kauai island. We prepared for this trip with money-saving in mind (we cooked most meals and did not order drinks when we ate out). We also lost weight before leaving. Here is my gratitude list. Losing weight and getting fitter. We tolerated short moderate to difficult hikes to go to the smaller and more private beach to avoid the crowds.  Beautiful beaches we enjoyed for free. The beaches are all public in Hawaii. The beautiful, lush, and shady hikes to complement sunny days. Natural rocks to sit on to watch the waves and enjoy the cool breeze for hours. Jojo's shaved ice with macadamia ice cream on the bottom. We enjoyed the tropical breeze flavor almost daily! Hawaiian feast and show called Lua. That was fun to watch. The company of friends from Colorado. Of all places, we got to meet in Hawaii after many years. How odd but nice. They stopped over
