A Time to Give - WUAH -

When I found out I was pregnant I was totally estatic, but scared at the same time because we were on a tight budget. I heard about this one webiste from CafeMom where you can make wishes and see if there is a Hero out there that will help grant your with. The website was awesome. It's called

Here is how it all got started:
No wish too large. No hero too small.
Wish Upon A Hero was first conceived by founder Dave Girgenti shortly after the September 11th attacks on New York City. From his home in NJ, Girgenti watched as thousands of people posted pictures of missing loved ones throughout the city. He thought there had to be a faster, more organized way to connect people in need. That was the moment in which the idea was born.
It's free to join, free to make a wish and free to be a hero! All you need is a kind heart. Since I have joined, it's almost been a year, I have been a hero to 13 families and have found 15 heroes for myself. Locally, I helped a daughter who wished for new flooring for her mother. When we put in new floors last year we had about 50 feet leftover, so she stopped by my house to look at it and my hubby helped her put it in her truck. I've also sent christmas gifts to a brother and sister. I have received little socks for my daughters and pants for me to find work!

There are so many kind people out there looking for someone to help. When I joined only around 6,000 wishes had been granted. Today over 40,000 wishes have been granted. I love this website, I visit it about once a week to see if there is anyone I can help out and I try to spread the news about this website. Can you imagine if Oprah got ear of it. I'm sure she'd help many people.

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
