Kim of Dirty Diaper Laundry prompted fellow bloggers with the question What’s on Your Fridge?
Before we moved this Memorial Day I had a fridge covered with stuff. Lots of it.
But, now that I am living in my dream home with a dream kitchen, I keep the fridge clean. Think I’m mean?
You better not. I homeschool remember? We have a school room with tons of artwork everywhere. I’d like to say that it all remains there but I’m constantly picking up drawings all over the house.
The fridge is clean but it’s not empty.
In the top left corner on the freezer rests the pictures of our family’s two Compassion International children.
I love them.
Frederick is from Kenya, he’s 11. Selina is 8 and lives in Tanzania.
They are a part of our daily prayers. We send them gifts. We write them letters (oh, how I’ve been neglectful of this lately) and are giddy when we receive one from them.
I can’t think of a better way to spend $38 (x2) a month. What a valuable lesson this is to my children.
They never get away with saying they are “starving” and they are always corrected when they get a bit greedy..I’m sure your children don’t suffer from that ;)
Does your family support a child living in poverty? Do your Christmas plans include blessing someone less fortunate than us?
