Water Is Just the Beginning | World Water Day March 22

A lot of us take water for granted.  We can't imagine a life where we would have to walk hours round trip just to get water.  We turn on a faucet and there is clean water.  Can you imagine having to spend several hours of your day walking to get water?

 And can you imagine how that time could be better spent? 


March 22nd is World Water Day 2013.  It is a day established by the United Nations to take a look at water issues around the world.  Did you know that almost 2,000 children die every day because they don't have access to clean water and sanitation?   There are 783 million people in the world who do not have access to safe water.  That's 11% of the world's population.

Help spread the word.  Water is Just the Beginning. 

There will be a Google + hangout on Friday March 22nd at 1:30 P.M. EST.
You can find it at
Google + World Water Day Hangout

And if you can't make it to the hangout, you can share posts with
hashtag #worldwaterday2013

Who IS The Quirky Homemaker from HBHL?

I'm that girl who went to college on scholarship, lost that scholarship after the first year, changed majors 5 times, started working full time to pay for college, ended up with a degree in fashion. . . that girl who met a boy on a cruise who she eventually fell in love with and moved 1100 miles away from home and family to be with. . . that girl who believes in Jesus, but married a man who isn't sure what to believe. . .then had kids with him. . .who are a perfect combination of us both. . . Lord, help us all. . . the girl who is still trying to figure life out. . . whose life, like this blog is constantly evolving. . . that girl who cooks for relaxation, is never organized, always had her nose in a book while growing up. . . who is afraid of heights, but married a BASE jumper. . .that girl who grew out her gray hair and is trying to be the fittest of her life in her 40's. . . that girl who would rather do crafts and sew, than fold the laundry or clean the mud off the floor. . . yeah, I'm that girl
