Well! I was planning a blog post in my head all day that was going to urge every one of you to go on over to Momastery and read about the Croyles -- all about how the mom has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and there are 8 children ranging in age from 18 down to baby -- and maybe donate 5 dollars apiece toward sending them on a family beach vacation to remember, complete with a photographer to capture the memories.
[And can I just put in here that I am so impressed with this idea? I mean, as I was reading the post, I was thinking, "Oh, yeah, they need help with meals, they need help with housecleaning, they need babysitters." But Glennon went above and beyond my boring daily-grind perspective and said, "They need FUN!"]
So I was really working on that post. It was funny, too. I was pretty well pleased with myself by the time I sat down at this computer. "I'm helping Glennon," I thought. "I might not be fun like her, and I might not have her imagination; but I can still help." (Have I ever mentioned that, as a young lass, I identified with Velma on Scooby Doo? So, yes, I was planning to be Velma to Glennon's Daphne.)
Turns out I'm too late. Momastery raised 25,000 dollars in less than a day. With no one individual being allowed to donate more than 25 dollars, she still managed to raise 25,000 dollars.
Wow. Let us hope Glennon never chooses to use her powers for evil. Imagine if she decided to encourage everyone to wear those awful bubble shorts...
[I WAS going to paste a picture of Daphne and Velma into this post, but I have unfortunately discovered - via an innocent Google Image search - that there are many, many people who have some very strange fantasies about these 2 cartoon characters. Scooby Doo is now forever ruined for me. Save yourselves - DO NOT try this search at home.]
