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.

New Year 2021 Gratitude

Welcome to my first post in the New Year 2021. Most of my off days are still spent indoors. It is cold outside. 39 degrees in Colorado. With still some social distancing, I still have many things to be grateful for this second wave of COVID. A family member was hospitalized in December but released in early January in better health. The COVID population in my hospital is low. I completed my 2/2 COVID immunization. It is something to be thankful for being in Tier 1A as I work in the intensive care unit. A working fireplace to sit close to - at home. A pedicure service for me and my daughter (and a cheese grater for callus removal *laughing out loud*) Chair massager at home to go home to after a long day at work. My family loves the chair, even little Josiah who is not even two. Funny Josiah whatever he does. He eats like a dog with a spoon and fork in his hands. Who needs those spoons and forks? They are just props. Kiddie masks fitting Josiah. He does not mind much wearing it. For many

Comfort

I harvested some greens from my indoor hydroponic planter . The greens can't get fresher than these, harvested right from my dining room. They are perfect with the Costco-size beef and pork.  I cooked six dishes. Most left-overs will be frozen for later like after-work dinner when most times, we are too exhausted to cook. I am grateful for the memory of cooking comfort I remembered from childhood in the Philippines--peanut stew, adobo, pork chops seasoned with lemon pepper, and sour soup.  I am grateful for the recipes readily available from the internet, the oven, instapot, and air fryer. I was able to cook 6 dishes in 2 hours, preparation time included. You'd think I was in a cooking contest under time-pressure. Only the judges (my family) are more forgiving and very appreciative of my cooking. I am grateful for the simple things I get to enjoy with my family--walking outdoors, however cold, before the snow hit--picture taking, and watching TV together. I am even thankful for
