This is the organization that my daughter belongs to, the one she will meet in Bali after East Timor. I just wanted to share this video to show you all how important this non-profit is to Hawaii. Uncle Tom and Aunt Cindy are amazing Christian people. God Bless them and their surfing ministry.

Today my miracle is a small one, but one I still consider miraculous. About a month ago I had taken some Sudafed PE which cause me to faint in the middle of the night. I got up to go to the bathroom about 2 hours after taking the medicine and after I got up to go back to bed I fainted. If you saw my bathroom, which is very small, about 5 ft by 7ft, you would know the chances of me not hitting the sink, the toilet, the shower step, the doorknob are just about nil. The fact that my husband was woken from a deep sleep, and that my son across the hall was also awoken and came running in, explains just how loud I hit the floor. It wasn't until the next day when I told the doctor what had happened that he asked which part of my body hit the floor first. I told him I didn't know. After I got off the phone I went to my bathroom mirror to scan my body for a bruise or any painful area. When I couldn't find any I started to look at my head and press all over it so I could see where I might have hit that, again nothing. I had no bruises, no sore spots, no bumps, no anything. I realized someone from above must of been helping me out. I assume God possibly sent some angels to make sure that I was not harmed. I remember waking up with my cheek pressed against the soft lambswool carpet I have in there and I remember my hands being in the prayer position right next to the same place. The way I usually fall asleep, not the way you land when you faint. My husband was calling my name and I guess this is why I woke up, otherwise I think I might have just slept there comfortably. All in all I still don't know what to make of this and either does my hubby, my doctor, or anyone else I tell. Whats the odds of falling in a room, 5X7, surrounded by porcelain and hitting absolutely no part of my body? I'd say probably nil.

So far my mom is doing well after her induction treatment for MDS. She will have her bone marrow checked on April 15th so please start the prayer chain. We are hopeful she will get to go home and await her stem cell transplant. She has not had too many side effects and none that are too awful. We all know who we owe this one to. The One this song was written for. "THE FAMOUS ONE."

I did want to alert everyone who has young girls to this horrid site. My daughter told me that this site is for girls from ages 9 on up and it it called Miss Bimbo. On this site you are a girl who can take diet pills (apparently this feature is being taken out), diet, get plastic surgery on your breasts and anywhere else, etc. This site is obviously intended to let young girls know that looks are about all they've got instead of letting them know that they are not all about what they look like. or how skinny they are, or how perfect they can make themselves. I still can't believe that this garbage is actually out there. My daughter couldn't believe it when she heard it. What kind of girls are these parents trying to raise. Either they allow it or they don't know what their daughters are doing on the internet. I told my kids this is the reason we only have internet in the middle 0f the living room, where everyone can see it. Kid's can get on this site thinking it is a game. This in fact does not sound like a game at all. I don't know how many more sites out there like this there are, but according to my daughter quite a few. So please be on the lookout.
