A Puddle of Good Intentions

Trying to be better.  Most of us make self-improvement efforts frequently during the course of our lives.  I'm in one of those modes myself - once again.  And, as usual, I'm working on a number of things all at the same time.  Smart?  Jury is still out.  Walking every day is one of the goals.  And so is the concept of being aware. 

So, today I combined them which initiated a day of introspective thought.  We've had a lot of rain recently and then the sun revealed itself.  Spring is here even though it's about 6 weeks late.  We now (finally) enjoy trees with actual leaves!

Kenya - an overdue update.

Helping to eliminate youth homelessness in the United States is something that Responsible Referrals was designed to do through monetary donations.  But this is not just an American issue. 

I was introduced to Davies Okombo of Kisumu, Kenya through a good friend and youth advocate a few years ago.  Davies and I have stayed in touch and I am inspired to watch how he has dedicated his life to work on behalf of the children in his care. 

A couple of days ago, I saw the UCDP Facebook posting informing me that there were New YouTube Videos from UCDP.  I watched.  And I remembered. Globally, we're all the same. The kids in these videos from a continent over 8,000 miles from Minnesota look and act just like the kids in the school across the street.  They're beautiful.  And they too, could use a little help.
