Another thought for Christmas

I know that yesterday I talked about the things on my Christmas list, but there were somethings I didn't mention.

I would also really like a goat or a chicken or even a cow. No, not for me, or in Farmville, but for someone in need.

Did you know that for as little as $70 you can send a goat to a family in need this Christmas. The family can use the goat milk for their own nutritional purposes as well as sell the excess to generate income. Baby chicks are only $14. Check this online catalog out. It is from Samaratin's Purse so I know it can be trusted. There are items for as low at $5 (milk for a child for a week) up to $10,000(a filtered water well to provide safe drinking water for a community.) But its the low cost of things that is incredible.

$6 - a blanket for a child
$9 - food for a baby for a WEEK
$100 - a household water filter for a family

You can also share the cost. So for $20 you can pitch in to that well I was talking about above. This is part of the high dollar items. The ones that make a difference in a community not only an individual life.

What a cool way to spread the love of God and the true spirit of Christmas this season.

So yeah, feel free to give me "sports gear" or "clothes and shelter" I would understand you heart. Besides if you put it that way, there is nothing I need.

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…
