I’ve been working for hours and hours and days now… getting ready to launch Bloggers for Birth Kits on my other blog.
That day is tomorrow.
And I can’t wait.
Funny how easy it is for a passion to spring up out of nowhere… Something like this that I’d never have dreamed of and yet it makes so much sense.
So many of my interests and passions combined: women’s issues, the developing world, birth, motherhood, service, YWAM, blogging, mobilizing, rallying people together, educating.
It’s a good fit really.
I almost didn’t do it this year because I feared getting too many donations.
Last year I wanted 300… and I got over 2000.
This year, I don’t know…
I just want what God has.
I almost backed away, but a friend (who I barely know) challenged me. “Isn’t having too many a good problem?” she asked me in earnest. “Surely if that happens, God has a way of helping you handle it, right?”
I suppose I’ve just been busy. And a little tired.
And the thought of lots and lots of emails and lots and lots of responding on social networks like blogs and twitter and facebook… is a bit tiring. (Especially when they’re primarily crammed in after 8:00pm at night when I’m already pretty wasted.)
And yet at the same time I feel completely energized by it all.
Doing something that has no (or little) personal benefit feels good, you know?
it feels right.
So here we go. In eight hours time Bloggers for Birth Kits Mothers Day Drive 2012 will launch.
Wish me luck! And come check it out here.
Q for you: Have you ever given yourself to something and accidentally discovered a passion because of it?
