As you know, my family and I have been working on our attitudes regarding giving, and just so everyone is completely clear on how things are going, I’d like to share the following conversation:
Me: I’m blogging with this girl, Prudence, and some other people on December 15th to raise awareness about clean water.
Husband: That sounds like a good idea.
Me: I don’t really know anything about the topic, and I wasn’t sure what to write about, but then I heard about someone choosing to go without water for a day. I thought we should do that.
Husband: Wait, do what?
Me: Not use water for a day. You know, no showers, no dishes, no cooking with water, no doing laundry. Basically, we don’t use water for a day.
Husband: Sigh. Can’t you just write about last winter when we lost power for three days, and we couldn’t even flush the toilet? I mean, I remember vividly what that was like.
Me: Um, no.
Now for more inspiration, we turn to my girl, Amelia.
As some of you know, my just-turned-eight-year-old daughter, Amelia writes for my blog, and I pay her a quarter a post. Let’s hear what my girl has to say.
Do you know what my mom bought my teacher? SHE BOUGHT HER A DUCK!!!!!!!!!!! I thought she was teseing. These are some of the other things I’d like to buy her a coffee cup stuffed animal flowers, candy and that’s all. I know that it is giving but I’d like to get her something eles. I want to give her something she likes because she is nice and I don’t think she likes ducks. Love Amelia
