2,000 children will die tonight from mosquito bites.
This is 100% preventable.
In honor of World Malaria Day, join me in ending malaria by 2015. Spread the word! I’m asking that each of you skip a lunch out and donate a bed net. These nets protect 2 people from mosquito bites which transfer deadly diseases such as malaria. One net is only $6 and can save two lives! To give a net click HERE.
Please share this with your friends and family and spread the word! Together we can END MALARIA!

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis
Change is never easy, and we shouldn’t expect it to be. We just have to be mindful that instead of fighting hard to hold on to what was, we must instead fight hard to let go. -Unknown
Some of us think holding on makes us strong;
but sometimes it is letting go.
– Hermann Hesse
There are things that we never want to let go of,
people we never want to leave behind.
But keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world,
it’s the beginning of a new life.
God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
– Reinhold Niebuhr
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
i wasn’t able to post my photo yesterday because we were traveling and didn’t have internet. we stopped at panera for dinner and ordered a delicious salad each. here’s johns: a mediterranean salmon salad. so that’s my photo of the day from yesterday. we got to our beach house late last night .. in time for a nearly full moon over the ocean surf. it was absolutely beautiful. i’ll be showing you some pictures in time so stay tuned. :)
Cinnabon! I love flying. :)
Yes. This is the B.E.S.T restaurant in the whole entire world. Sometimes I have dreams about this place.
So many of my dear family all in one happy place. Reminded me of heaven..
Sandia Peak Tramway, the world’s longest aerial tramway.. overlooking the lights of Albuquerque..
Two years ago in September my family went to China for a week. It was amazing.. we walked stretches the Great Wall, visited the Forbidden City, dined on authentic Chinese food..
And bought a tea set in Beijing. The mountains in China are unlike any I have seen before.. the sweeping, sheer ruggedness and yet the dense foliage.. it was breathtaking..
I would love to visit China again someday.. :)
