Is it Intermission?

I've had writer's blog block today.
I have stared at this empty screen all day and nothing.nothing has come.
What's funny is that I've been writing history related stuff like crazy today.  I researched and wrote about the history of the Maypole.  I did a geography write-up on Sweden.  I wrote about some other cool stuff. 
But in between all that I kept coming back to this empty screen and nothing. 
I ate some my favorite fall candies for inspiration...
But even that didn't do it for me.
I've got nothing today people.
Do they do intermissions in a Symphony????
Maybe that's my problem...
Even so.... 
We are chipping away.
Please won't you take part!!
I added another Giveaway you can enter in and  get extra entries here... Grace Knuth is adopting Tommy and could really use our support!!  So go show her some love and make sure to come back here and tell me!

  1. I donated $60 to the Tams for toffee. Not sure if that counts, but if it does, I'm in!

  2. Hey Julia, this is Kim Decker, I donated to the Tams, Deutschs, Rowes, Dobrovits, Brenton, Pearson, Grady, Dagmar and Porter. A total of $170. I will also share on blog and FB! Bless these babes and their families. :)

  3. I haven't had a chance to read any blogs in weeks but I just got a chance to catch up on your posts... I was so moved by each of the families' stories, how could I choose just one?

    Because now more than ever, I understand how hard this journey is...
    Because my son was a mere month away of being transferred to a hopeless institution...
    Because I am watching God redeem a once deemed "worthless" life before my very eyes...

    I donated $10 each to the Deutcsh, Rowe, Dobrovits and Tam families as well as to Pearson, Grady and Porter for a total of $70. I also gave to Grace Knuth's giveaway for Tommy.
