Day 95


Don’t judge a book by its cover” – American Proverb

It’s 8: 39 PM on day 95 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – and chicken curry  for  breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for most of the day – raised $65 –I don’t know if the people who made the donations would want me to reveal their identities so I won’t but I would just like to take this opportunity to thank them from the bottom of my heart – who knew people I’d never met would end up giving me the best Christmas present EVER 🙂 –  drink a glass of Coke by myself – I didn’t even spill a drop I am SO proud of myself 🙂 –    feed myself  curry and rice for lunch and exercise for 5 minutes – the bones in my leg started creaking loudly so I stopped because I thought I broke a hip or something  LOL 🙂             

A few weeks ago we – my family and I –  went to a party a few hours after we got there the guest of honour came to exchange pleasantries with me she said so what do you now and I replied I study and read a lot and she looked at me her eyes full of pity and said oh and in that moment I was so temped to tell her all about my philanthropic efforts because I knew that the look of pity on her face would be replaced by one of  aw and amazement but then I remembered Matthew  6:3 – but when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing – and suddenly  I didn’t feel the need  to show her up anymore. Do you use what you do to make yourself look better in other people’s eyes? 🙂
