Two Thursday Treasures

I have an early meeting this morning and must run. I wanted to leave you with two ideas to watch. One is inspiring because it involves a little six year old physically challenged boy and his mission to raise funds for an orphanage in Vietnam -- the place he was taken when he was an infant because of his birth condition.

The second is a ten minut animated film about water, our environmental accountability and the ripple effect of our actions.

The first, I found at my friend Brandi's blog, Drama, Conspiracies and just General Awesomeness.

The second treasure I discovered at Maureen's, Writing without Papers.

Please take a moment to read Sam's story at Samuels Ride for Rescue. Brandi used to work with his mother's sister -- it is a compelling and touching story.

And, I've embedded the video clip for the short -- The Incident at Tower 37. At Maureen's place you'll find all sorts of other links regarding this award winning animation. They're well worth the click!

May your day be filled with treasures that touch your heart and open your mind to the wonders of your world.

And thank you Maureen and Brandi for opening my world up to wonder today.
