Fair Trade Friday December

I was eagerly awaiting my Fair Trade Friday December box this year and a little worried when the postal service tracking showed it in transit for several days.  On Tuesday afternoon my little box arrived.

Hiking to Abrams Falls

We love to hike on our vacations.  Usually park entrances are low cost or in the case of the Smoke Mountain National Park there is no entrance fee at all.

I had one hike I wanted to do in the Cades Cove area and that was Abrams Fall.  The hike is five miles round trip and will take three to four hours to complete.

There is ample parking at the trail head with primitive bathrooms and a trash container.  The road to the trail head is a small gravel road that veers to the right after the Elijah Oliver Cabin. We took some breaks along the river and it took us a little over three hours round trip.

A Day of Giving

Today May 16th is designated as a day of giving.  Mercy House Global has teamed up with several organizations who work together to give women a brighter future.

“She Is Priceless” is a campaign to make a difference in the lives of oppressed women.

A pearl is a healed wound.  An oyster protects itself from irritation and suffering and the result is a priceless pearl.  The women we support have endured unthinkable suffering in their lives and often feel forgotten.  We are joining together to remind the world that every woman matters.
