Have you ever seen or experienced something that made question your priorities? Saturday afternoon I attended a charity event to support my little cousin Natalia. Her story along with the stories of a few other disabled children were read to the crowd and my heart ached for them.
So young and fighting such tough battles and challenges. It made me question my priorities. How can I be so concerned with my clothes and hair when there’s other people out there fighting for the things I too often take for granted?
I’ve thought about this topic many times before and the biblical story of Ester tends to come to mind. The tale of one of the loveliest of girls who used her beauty not for selfish gain but to capture the heart of a king and save her people. Whether you’re religious or not, the story still presents an interesting concept. Perhaps, if you’re heart is in the right place than even seemingly superficial things can be used to change lives for the better.
I know that that is my goal with this blog.
I also know that…. I loved learning about this amazing organization! This charity dinner and auction was for Carousel Ranch. Carousel Ranch is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing developmental, therapeutic and recreational programs for disabled and disadvantaged children through horses.
Although the goals and benefits are different for every child, I was able to witness the joy it brought to all of the young demonstrators on Saturday night.
