A Confession with Great Humility

A few months ago, I blogged about wanting to help the charity "Goods for Girls" (see sidebar). But have I done it yet? No, I have not.

Why?

Because every pay period that comes along, there seems to be more expenses than pay check and I have not had the chance to order any of the necessary materials yet.

But I still manage to buy plenty of sodas, and other wee little impulse purchases here and there.

God have mercy. I need a better strategy.

No, actually, I just need to do it. Yesterday was pay day and so I could go right now and buy what I need to do this.

I think I will.

Off I go.

So, there's my humble confession.

Am I the only one who thinks about doing good, talks about doing good, but then who does not follow through and actually DO good?

Yay. Dave Ramsey. BTDT. We've been snowballing for years. Small shovel, big pile. We press on.

I all-to-often find I have trouble actually following through with my good intentions. Lord have mercy on me, a sinner.
