AHOPE

Did I tell you I've been doing some research? That might be an understatement.

The last couple of days has been all about heart disease. On the news, on the soap operas (yay General Hospital!), etc. This is all warranted and appreciated; my husband's family tree has heart disease all over it. Women need to understand how susceptible we are to heart disease.

But my focus has been AIDS, specifically in Africa. Because there are just so many people dying. Today I came across my blog friend, Nicole's, post. So I wanted to point it out to you because it was great and I want one of these shirts.

Since my budget pants have been "tightened" (and by "tightened I mean "strangled") the only real spending I do, other than groceries and gas, is spending that will directly POSITIVELY affect someone else. This is kind of tough in our world, if you haven't noticed. Anywho, there are these shirts so go buy them. If you were going to get me a Valentine's gift and hadn't yet, I'll take one of these.

That's all I got. I think a sinus infection has attacked me so there's not a whole lot going on in this head except pain. Cheers!

AHOPE's been on my mind too. Like to go back without my mind occupied with adopting MZ. SO much to know and do...

We visited AHOPE when we brought Solomon home-sept 2007- I can not get it out of my head.
Since traveling to South Africa to bring Owen home, and having our first "real" AIDS/HIV experience(check out World AIDS day post on blog- Dec 1, I believe) I can not get it out of my head.
I am searching, trying to find "my role". I know that there is one for me. I just need to know what it is.
I would love to hear more about what you are thinking about!
