My mail carrier delivered something special yesterday in addition to two magazines.
I'm obsessed with magazines. Glossy pages, how-to guides, and explanations about anything and everything. And all the inspiration. Of gadgets I surely need and wall colors I surely must paint. I love mags all the more when they only cost $5 for annual subscriptions. This offer may or may not be available when you click, but it's worth the click. Trust me.
Back to the something special:
My California bestie, Caryann, is participating in Advent Conspiracy at her church. One of the principles behind AC is to spend less so you can give more. So this year, she spent some time making gifts for the ones she likes. Then, she took the money she would have spent and donated it to Living Water International - a charity helping communities get access to clean water and teach more about the "living water" of Jesus that satisfies the deepest thirst.
Sidebar: According to the UN Human Development Report, half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from a water-related disease. Cuh-razy.
So Caryann made me this:
I will plop this on the counter at Publix with pride.
