Great sisters!

As some of you might know, I am a avid, no maniacal (is there even such a word) reader. And amongst the books off course, I also read blogs. I only read two other South African girl's blogs every day - sisters Tertia and Mel. Now Tertia is a blog celebrity, here and off course, world wide and known for her straight forward and open way with words. She wrote a brilliant book (which I read to give me insight to support my SIL who was struggling with infertility while I was pregnant with the twins) and off course, also because Tertia has a set of twins as well. At last this great read "So close" is available on Amazon. Go now, order, buy and read - it is a great read. And this was the first installment of Cat's bookclub. Maybe this can become a regular feature.

Now Mel needs you urgent help - she runs a great charity called Bossum Buddies and she needs slightly used clothes, blankies and more - go have a read and maybe you can help. Posting is soon, so I do not know if you will make this one. Also remember your dollars goes 10 times further here than in America - please donate if you can. She has shipments coming form time to time so you can also collect and keep for the next shipment. Bossum buddies visit the poorest woman in South Africa's state hospitals and give them the basics for mom and baby after the birth, serve them with God' word in the process and also support moms with babies in the NICU.
