Lot's to Talk About in a Short Time

 
Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful week and that you have many good and fun plans for the weekend.  My week went pretty well and was pretty fast.  Next week will even be faster with only four working days and then one of my favorite holidays Independence Day!
 
Charities
I wanted to share with you a couple charities that are close to my heart.  I do so love children and most of you know that I can't wait to someday have some of my own. Sometimes children don't get the live the lives that they need and their lives are cut short due to many reasons including catastrophic illness.  It breaks my heart when a little one will never be able to grow up to live as an adult.  So I wanted to pass along a couple of links to these charities so you could check them out and maybe get involved in someway in your communities.
Dear Ally?
Rene  has been bugging me for a while now saying that I am so addicted to the Internet that I should make myself useful.  LOL  He thinks that I'd be great at giving advice to people that may want it.  He often calls me Dear Ally and thinks I'm more hip than the old Dear Abby column.  I don't know about that but I do care about people and decided that I would love it if any of you wanted to ask me advice on anything I'd be happy to do my best to help you.  So please send me your problems and or relationship questions and I will be more than happy to answer them here.
 
Reality Shows
As most of you know I love watching reality TV shows.  My favorite, Big Brother, will be back on the air on July 13 Woohoo!  Hell's Kitchen is down to the final two between Petrozza and Christina!  Should be exciting.  The Mole has been pretty fun to watch and that caps off a wonderful Monday night with The Bachelorette on before it.  I really do like DeAnna and hope she finds what she is looking for.
 
Anyway, I think I've jabbered enough for one day.  I know you all have many journals to read.  Have yourselves a happy weekend and remember to keep a smile on your pretty faces.  Luv ya!  TTFN
You Are a Fork
You are truthful, direct, and straight forward.
People find your honesty to be a bit piercing at times.

You are driven and wildly ambitious.
You know what you want, and you take the most direct path to getting it.

The Make A Wish Foundation is a charity I hold close to my heart...
My daughter was granted a wish when she was sick, and let me tell you; to see a smile on her face the day her wish came true was the most incredible thing, as I had not seen even a speck of happiness on that sad little face for a very long time...
You know, they do take volunteers as "Fairy Godparents" (I think that is what they called them).  They are in charge of meeting the child and family, and for helping to come up with a wish if the child can't decide (some kids are so sick they just can't think of anything good).  They coordinate the whole thing.  They work diligently to make the whole process a wonderful thing.  And they do!  I think you would be GREAT at it!!!

I have many things I could use some advice from Ally on.  Would it be an anonymous post?  Like we send the issue we are struggling with via e-mail, but you do not disclose who is asking when you post the question and answer in your blog?  You will be great at that, too!
You are just a great person!!!
