Thank God For Everything!

Giveaway Over Congratulations to 1StopMom. 

One of the most rewarding aspects of being an active participant in the social media space is having the ability to make a positive impact on the lives of others. People use social media for many things but I think using it to power good works is one of the best ways to utilize social media. That is why when I was contacted by Hallmark to participate in the Ambassador program I signed up immediately because I appreciated the charity aspect of the campaign combined with the support of early childhood literacy. 


In my first giveaway charities for book donations were chosen by the winners and this time I get to chose my local charity to donate books to - the Atlanta Children’s Shelter. 


When we think of the homeless the image of adults frequently comes to mind
but many of these adults are women - with children. The Atlanta Children’s Shelter provides childcare services for homeless children. Their parents receive guidance on job hunting, skills building, etc to help them on the road to having a stable place to call home. The Shelter serves 40 children and I have to tell you I am so impressed by this National Association for the Education of Young Children certified center that donating the books to them was a total pleasure! 


With the Hallmark recordable books the children will be able to hear the sound of their parent or caregivers voice and be able to take this source of comfort with them wherever their travels take them. The last book that I received to review is titled “Thank You God for Everything!” I can’t think of a more appropriate book for my son and for the Atlanta Children’s Shelter which is housed in a church. I am thankful everyday for the blessings that God has bestowed upon me, my family and friends and am so very thankful that The Atlanta Children’s Shelter exists to help support these families that are in need. 



GIVEAWAY

Contest open until September 7th, 2010 11:59 pm EST.  

Disclosure: As a Hallmark ambassador I received compensation for my time and a review copy of the book.

God, thank you for protecting me while I was the size of an ant. You protected me at my most vulnerable stage in life. You protected me through the 1st, 2nd and 3rd tri-mesters. You gave me my first breath of air. You blessed me with eyes to see. You made provision for all of my senses. You gave me a strong voice to cry if I needed anything. You were with me through my birth and still. God, thank you for allowing me to be. I am happy being me. LOL & BFF

I am thankful for my children. I have a 10 year old that I had pretty young and while in an abusive marriage. I then re-met and married my first real boyfriend from when I was a teen a few years ago. We tried for almost 3 years to have a baby, and in that time, suffered 3 miscarriages. I was then diagnosed with PCOS, a condition that can wreak havoc on a woman's fertility. I became very depressed, and began questioning everything, from my own self-worth to my faith...I finally gave up on becoming a mom again, and we had started the process of looking into adoption. (My husband was adopted, and was very open to this.) A few short months after giving up and leaving it to God, we became pregnant with my now 8 month old daughter, Sophia. Then, to our surprise, 3 months after having her, we found we are pregnant again! I am now 20 weeks along, and I feel that I am so incredibly blessed. Sometimes God answers prayers in HIS own time, not ours!
