I have always been one to stress. I can't imagine my life without it, how sad huh? I'm one of those "over stressing even though it'll be ok." Kind of people.
Today, my limit was almost hit.
I called my mother , and she calmed me down(thank heavens for my amazing mother.) Then I went home and browsed pinterest to get my mind on something else, but I knew what I needed to do. I HAD to take things in my own hands and start figuring everything out and getting things fixed.

My mind was slowly coming to ease, when I decided to make myself some tea (which has been a huge craving of mine recently) don't worry, I'm watching my caffeine intake :). As I took what was supposed to be a big delicious gulp of my tea, I ended up spitting it right back out! I put salt in my tea instead of sugar! YUCK!
Epic. Fail.
So then, I headed out to go get another tea.

I feel rather selfish after running into a woman at T&L today. (a local corner store) while I was getting a NEW tea I over heard this upset woman asking the clerk about any ideas for donations to a fundraiser event for her daughter and grand baby. You see, her daughter was forced into labor with twins at just 24 weeks into her pregnancy.(I'm currently almost 19weeks! Whoa!) My stomach cringed while I'm listening to her speak about the loss of one twin and almost loosing the other, all the many surgeries and her daughters job forcing her to quit due to her being in the hospital for so long!
This woman was flustered, but keeping her cool so well. I couldn't help but chime in. I'm part of management for a company in the next town over and we are always welcoming donation requests from organizations. I asked her for her information and a flyer about their event to raise money for her daughter and her grand child's surgeries. This poor woman starts asking me for ideas to get people to donate to her event and it just breaks my heart, I walked into that store feeling sorry for myself when this woman and her family are going through much worse times. I left that store with a different outlook on things and feeling very thankful for my healthy baby.
I have this woman's information if anyone would like to donate anything for her raffle.

Feel free to email me if you're interested.

Later Y'all


  1. Tell the woman to set up a website for raising money. use
