But hey, while you're here, enjoy some recent Blogdrive entries:limpkinsYes, we blog.
Welcome to Jaded Humanitaria
... the blog of venting, laughing, ranting and raving thanks to my place of employment, The Charity. If you have ever heard of the Salvation Army (and if you are in the US you probably have), we are quite a bit like them. We assist low income people with things such as fuel for winter, food, clothing, household goods and furniture, electric and utility bills, medical needs, home repairs and Christmas programs, along with a variety of clerical and tax services. Like any other charity, most of those who come through our doors really do need our help, but we do get our share of crazies, drug addicts, system players, and con artists. These are my stories. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have.
What kinda cool kids don't blog!?
by god's word
They are a garland to grace your headand a chain
to adorn your neck. — Proverbs 1:9
This verse from Proverbs teaches us that we are never

companion. Its teachings are our guide. Its messages,
a source of love. When there is no one to show us the
way, God’s Word will direct us. When there is no one to
help us maneuver through the dangers of life, the Bible
will protect us. Just as a garland surrounds a head, let
God’s Word surround our soul. Then, we will walk
protected, directed, and loved.
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein

Can I be honest with you? There are days when I just don't feel like getting up in the morning. I'm noticing this a lot lately because the weather is changing and it's pretty cold early in the morning when I awake to start my day. There are days when I move that blanket off of me and quickly snatch it back because it's too cold to get up. I know I HAVE to get up, especially because it's cold and I know I have to turn the heat on so it's warm when the rest of my family gets up to start their day.
But, if I had to be honest with myself, there are plenty of days that I want to simply roll back over and get a couple of more hours of sleep. I simply don't feel like getting up and doing my morning rituals -like praying and thanking God for the miracles He has in store for me for the day; like meditating or exercising (well, since the truth is be told, I sometimes, even on my most motivated days, find a reason to skip this step); like reviewing my goals and taking time to visualize them...
