Donations….really? Did she just ask? YES

Most of you don’t know my story or anything about me…but here goes the basics. I am a single mother striving through this life that seems hell bent on bringing us all down. Its about money, looking Fab, getting the best looking spouse, way to many broken families, people who are all about themselves, that think that if THEY aren’t getting there way then they move on. People no longer look out for each other only themselves.

I am a dreamer, I don’t want to look perfect, I don’t need the best looking husband just the one that thinks I am the best, I want to love my neighbor and help whoever I can. I donate to any cause I feel does it for the better of mankind.

I am a parent who thinks her childs education is important enough to make every sacrifice whatever it takes.

I am the women who presses on with a broken heart and believes in love and romance.

I am the person who has been through hell even passed by the devil and ran as fast as I could to God. .

I am the one every body counted out and said wouldn’t amount to much and as I tell my story, my testimony, I am healed by all the people who are proud of what I have done.

I am the women who lay on a floor wishing to die and stands here today making the best of herself.

I am the one who works full time, goes to school full time and manages her household ALL by myself but would love to share it someday, But I know I am strong enough to do it.

I am a mother who isn’t afraid of disapline her child, and knows its good for her to lose every once in awhile. Isn’t afraid of her hating or loving my choice to raise her with morals, respect and to get a good education. Remembering that right now she doesn’t know what is best for her, its my job to teach her to make those decisions later on.

So as I tell my story, its in the middle of a great chapter. I have accomplished more than anyone every thought but always knew I could. I am headed to the top and taking love with me!!! I have amazing people around me, I have a wonderful daughter, a crazy but great family, and my dog. I have Jesus and that’s enough for me.

In light of all this…why am I telling you this about myself?? Well I am in the processing of buying my first home..well townhome. I am so happy to be able to have a little something that’s mine. I need all the help I can to move and the church said I should ask people to donate…really are you crazy?? Ask for donations for myself? BUT I am the one who donates? The reply was overwhelming that it was my turn to ask for help, I spent my days helping others and right now I need the help.

So this is my story and it will have a happy ending even if a few chapters sound like a horror movie…God’s has an amazing plan for me and I am just asking if you would mind helping out?

Thanks for listening, spreading the word, and all the encouragement and as I nervously end this blog I am hoping no one see’s this as a ploy, a selfish act, or lame, a pity part, its just me asking for help because my goal in life is to help as many as possible and spread love in hopes of reversing this crazy worlds way of thinking@!

Donates are being accepted of any kind at paypal.com (email address sjhanson77@gmail.com)

The “Holiday” Season

I find it funny that every year we the people complain about how commercialized the Holidays have become. We now have stores open Thanksgiving evening and black friday is like the mosh pits of shopping. BUT aren’t we to blame???…we talk about society like we aren’t apart of it. If you don’t want the holidays so commercialized then stop buying so much crap and feeling like you have to top the “jones” every year…WE have the power the stores, industry are just profiting on what we say we want…and then we blame them COME ON!!!

I think we have also gotten to far away from what holiday’s actually mean. Thanksgiving is a holiday to celebrate the pilgrams and indians coming together (in short) but we see it as a great day to see who can have the biggest meal and the Christmas tree up first. Really I kinda like just spending time with my loved ones, I wouldn’t really care if we just ate cereal.
Also the Christmas issue…I am just going to put it out there…SINCE when did we feel we need to hide the reason we celebrate Christmas with Santa, reindeer, gifts and Christmas trees? Since when did we have to say HOliday instead of CHRISTMAS. I don’t say happy holidays to my Jewish friends, I say Happy Hanukkah. Those things should be extra’s not the reason. ITS CHRISTMAS BECAUSE ITS THE DAY JESUS WAS BORN!!! If you don’t believe then don’t celebrate its really that easy. Just like me I am not Jewish but I don’t change their holiday’s I just don’t practice Hanukkah. If your not Christian and don’t believe in Christmas (the real reason) then its just another day to you, but I will celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus its ok if you don’t want to but don’t act like you deserve to have it off from work or school or that you need to rush out and buy presents for a holiday that doesn’t even pertain to you. We get Winter break at school but it orginally started out as CHRISTMAS break but since not everyone believed in it, we had to change it. I have an idea…lets just get of Winter break because I don’t like WINTER! Why give our kids a break they don’t need to celebrate a holiday we can’t mention in the schools?? THink about it!

GET REAL people no one says you have to celebrate anything you don’t believe in. Celebrate what you do believe in, for the real reason not because a huge retailer says its time to buy presents to put under a tree and celebrate a holiday that is a Christian hoiday. Its the same as people who don’t believe in Valentines Day, Memorial Day, Kawanza, Hanukkah, Birthdays etc…its your choice but when are we as Americans going to get off our lazy butts and change things ourselves? or are you waiting for someone else or the government to do it???? Come on reality is we are the reason things like the holiday’s are the way they are…if you want to get back to less commercialized holidays and more about family, friends and helping others then do it otherwise its all an act for good measure!!!

Its time to put the blame where it belongs on you! and me and you over there and yes even you! this isn’t the retailers, government, other peoples fault its our own..claim it own it and change it if you don’t like it or shut up and quiet complaining you have shopping to do, the jones just bought a yacht!!!
