Olga's Give To has been extended one more day. I'm not leaving without $500.00. I just can't be this close, only $70.00 away, and give up. 

I am so excited and I know I sound like a broken record but please bear with me. You at least have the option of not reading, imagine poor Peter, there's no place for him to hide. (hehe)  I was really nervous coming in to this "Give To" . I have never done anything like this before and I was worried. 
Worried people would laugh at my efforts. Worried that no one would help. Worried that people would be unsupportive.

I'm not a really optimistic person, as you can see. I usually talk myself out of any ideas before I can ever get a chance to see what might happen. But this was different. In all honesty,  I can say this was all from God. The idea was planted by Him. And believe me, I tried to tell Him it wouldn't work., not on my little, obscure blog. But He wouldn't listen. Ha! So I had to listen to Him. 

And it worked!! There is 430.00 plus a ton of ornaments going to the Abell Family. I put my fears and insecurities behind me, actually into Gods hands, and did what I know He was asking me to do. 

And if there were people laughing, or shaking  their heads, or thinking that $500.00 isn't going to help much, well you know what? I never saw it, or heard it. All I heard were encouraging words and  supportive emails, I saw re-posting on blogs and FB.
And for that I thank you all!!

Now! I know there are at least 7 more people in this world who would love to chose an ornament for Olga and support her mom and dad!!

You can view the  ornaments here . And again thank you for making this such a fun and successful Give to for Olga!! Remember it's all for her. It's all for a little girl who needs to come home!
