I'm just a little pawn in the huge chess game of life.

No, more like a speck of dust that settles on the board as everyone else is playing chess.

Sigh. I've been nervous/excited for this upcoming activity in TWO DAYS. Nervous, because we've never done anything like this before. Excited, because I feel like it's actually something REAL that will make a difference to someone clear across the world, fun! Nervous, because we're asking people to dig deep in their hearts and their tiny reserves of time and their pockets to come up with everything we need for this activity.....! Crossing my fingers!

I was disheartened, today, though, as I tried to jump through some local merchants' hoops hoping to get some donations of requested items. Simple, right? Yeah, not so much. No one I talked to had any power, or else they referred me to someone else, Oh that guy isn't working, we gave at the office, yada yada yada... sigh. I couldn't even get a post office to give me more than four flat rate boxes, even though they had a whole box in the back room. Seriously?

Granted, had this activity been planned months ago, instead of a couple of weeks ago, we probably could have had more of our ducks in a row... but alas... hopefully it will all turn out okay. It always seems to, somehow. Maybe the Lord really does watch over me and care about the puny little things that I stress over.

Don't worry it will all work out. Yes, it may seem alot to dig deep but in the whole scense of things, isn't this what we all said we would do? Consecrate our time, talents and means?

It's such a great activity, I think you will be surprised at the response.

Ok sorry for the deletes, first time ever to comment to a post on a blog, hee hee hee

You can actually go to www.usps.gov and order as many Flat Rate boxes as you need, they will deliver them free to your home.

Also, I don't know much about your activity, but in true "Shellie Style" it will come off without a hitch. Your heart is in the right place.
