Wake Up Wednesday

So it's that day of the week again....Wake Up Wednesday.  For any of you who are new to this blog this is the day where I present a challenge to do a good deed.  You can partipate if you'd like.  It's just a reminder to me to wake up and realize that there is a lot more going on in the world than what's happening in my own little bubble.  It's a reminder to reach out to others who may need help.  If you partipate you have a week to complete the challenge and then next week you can tell us how it went. 

Last week's challenge was to truly listen.  This one was hard for me.  I remembered to work on it, but I feel like it's one I could work on forever.  I tried to listen to my boys, but there is always a lot running through my mind, so it was a challenge for me.  I did manage to listen really well at church this week (which can be tricky with the boys) and I felt so uplifted afterwards.  I don't have any earth-shattering experiences to share this week, but I know I'm a work in progress.  I'm still working on this one.

This week's challenge is a little more concrete.  The challenge is to watch someone's children for free.  Any of you who are mothers know how much this one would be appreciated.  Maybe you have a neighbor who has her hands full and you could offer to take her kids for an hour so she can run an errand.  Maybe there's a couple who would love to have a little alone time.  It can be anyone. 

Now, let's hear about how your week of listening went.  I'm excited to hear about it.  Thanks for stopping by.
