Water – H2O! So refreshing, so good especially when its ice cold! We use it for so many things like taking a shower or bath, washing our laundry, washing dishes, making food but probably the most common way is to drink it! We all know (or at least I am assuming we all do) how important water is for our bodies and really for the environment but can you imagine if you went and turned on your tap and found dirty water? I’ll be honest I would freak out – probably call my husband and insist someone come see whats wrong with my water supply. I think most of us would probably react somewhat like that – that is those of us who daily receive and dare I say expect to find clean water from our taps every day! Can you imagine (and I can’t really even) drinking dirty water and that being the norm for you!?

One of the reasons I love to blog is to partner with programs and stand behind great initiatives that I support and think are fabulous. I love being able to use the platform I have built to help promote good things that are happening around the world and today I am doing just that! I have teamed up with Me To We Brita to share about their new campaign which I am super excited about! Me to We Brita has just launched a new limited edition Statement Bottle that provides – wait for it – clean water to a person in Irkaat, Kenya for a whole year! Do you need me to say that again?? By purchasing ONE limited edition bottle YOU will be providing a YEAR’S supply of CLEAN water to one person in Irkaat, Kenya!! *Start your car now* I couldn’t wait to get my bottle and after opening it my son quickly snatched it out of my hands and said “mommy, is this for me?” well of course he thought since it was blue it was for him but I stop for a second before replying and I thought to myself ok here is a perfect teachable moment! So I explained to my son why this what seemed to be a perfectly normal blue water bottle, was actually a super special water bottle and after explaining to him how people in Kenya have to drink dirty water it was like a little light went on in his 3 year old mind and he got how awful that would be. My – now his – water bottle hasn’t left his little chubby fingers since it was opened and he carries it around with pride. My kids are water fanatics (if that is even possible) but seriously they love water. They love to play in it, bath in it, swim in it but most of all drink it. Even tonight while putting them to bed I think I had to fill their cups 3  times each before bed. How blessed we are that they can just turn the tap on and drink as much or as little as they want without fear of really running out or getting sick from drinking it. As part of ME to We’s transparent giving model, all ME to WE Brita products come with a track your impact code for consumers to track exactly where and how their purchase has made an impact – all you have to do is go online and enter your unique code.

 

 

 

I hope that you can see how passionate I am about this cause! Everyone desires to drink clean water so me and my family are standing up for clean water and I hope you will join us! Big changes start with simple everyday choices. Today, March 22nd is World Water Day so I encourage you to get out today and purchase your own statement bottle an help supply one lucky soul in Kenya with clean water for a year!

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
