If I were to make a goal to eat healthy or exercise or something like that I would fail.
I like all things beginning with the letter "C" (candy, chocolate, cake, cookies, cupcakes, chips, carbs, etc.) (amazing how many things start with c, isn't it?) and I don't like to be sweaty.
So a couple years ago I decided to write a letter to someone each week. I was over 50% successful at this one.
Last year I decided to use glitter more. I did pretty good at this one. I glittered a few picture frames, letters, shoes, and other random things.
This year I am going to write to my little compassion boy (although he isn't little anynmore) from Ethiopia once a month. I was feeling sort of bored with it. He would write the same things to me in each letter, and I never really felt a connection. A few months ago at church someone from Compassion International came to speak. There was also someone who was once supported as a child. She was saying how much the letters from her sponsors meant to her. I realized that I might be bored because I am not giving it my all. He is a kid, I can't expect him to entertain me.
I am hoping that by writing him a letter each month he will know that I am praying for him and his family. I started supporting him when he was 4 years old. He is now 13 years old. I love that I have been able to be a part of his life for so long.
