Some of you might have noticed I was missing from Reasons to be Cheerful last week, I was in Belarus with Samaritans Purse, the charity that runs the Operation Christmas Child initiative.
It was a superb week, I met so many awesome children and had my eyes opened in so many ways. If you look back through my last few posts you'll see more from my trip if you are interested. At the weekend I'll be publishing a post about what I learnt about OCC while I was away with them, it will make for interesting reading.
Thanks so much to Kat for being a great host last week and this week is being hosted by Sally over at Pressies by Pebbles. Write your post and then please go over and see her to link up, leave a comment and go share some comment love. I'll certainly come to visit anyone this weekend that leaves me a comment.
#R2BC will be back here with me again next week and will run each week over Xmas and the New Year, so do join in.
So what is my reason to be cheerful this week? Simple - 50 smiles as they received their shoebox gifts...
Have a great week, Mich x
