I am so excited that it is November! Not only do I have a different outfit, I have a different outlook. This year is sure to bring much change in the selfishness that I have struggled with for years. My husband and I have talked a lot this week about ways to cut back, get caught up, give, and save. Scary, but freeing at the same time.

We have a big year ahead, and I am so excited about what God is doing through the 12 X 12 Project! The focus this month is hunger, and It has been awesome to see that so many are willing to jump on board. There is so much need, even right here in our county. I was at my daughter's school today for a walk-a-thon, and I was heartbroken tying the tattered shoes of one little girl. There were several children that looked like they hadn't had a bath in days. Dirty clothes and hair, but sweet smiles. As I handed a little boy his card after marking his lap, I called him by name and said, "good job." He looked up at me with big brown eyes and asked, "how do you know me?" I smiled back and pointed to his name on the card. In return I got a high five and a HUGE smile. I was happy to know him. I actually wanted to take him home, but that would have been kidnapping. :)

The changes and sacrifices I will be making over this year will be challenging, but I KNOW the rewards are going to be so much greater. Especially if the rewards are going to someone in need. I am blessed!

First of all I would like to say superb blog!
I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
