It's Our Anniversary!!

17 years ago Today I first felt the call to "Make A Difference" in the lives of others. I started by getting my family, neighbors and friends to donate clothing and can goods to local homeless shelters in New Orleans. It was an off and on battle, because my heart was in it 100%, but that was not the case for everyone else. On this day in 2007 after being inspired through a friend I made a life changing decision. I would NEVER again allow the behavior of others to determine what my destiny would be. On October 1, 2007 with the support and contributions of my husband and daughter we formed "A FiveOh4 Uplifting." Within these past 2 years we've delivered and mailed over 8,000 goody bags. We've even been blessed to send goody bags to children in South Africa! Although, finances are rough for everyone we have been blessed to have a handful of dedicated, loyal and loving supporters. Our family ministry is here to stay! We (as a family) have made an oath that no matter what happens in this world WE will do whatever we Humanly Can to ALWAYS uplift those in need. What a joyous ride we are on!

October 1st is a very significant date for me. Not just because of our ministry, but also because today I celebrate my 1 year BLOG anniversary for "I Choose Bliss!" This blog and all of you have played a huge part in my growth over these past 365 days. I have been encouraged, inspired and I often feel loved. Because of your support and kindness I felt the courage to create the podcast to this blog. I love logging on and knowing you all will be here to share my ups and downs with me.

To celebrate I am giving away one of these gorgeous magnets created by Julia Da Rocha of PozArt! I have picked a number and the person leaving a comment on the number I've chosen will be the lucky winner of this beautiful magnet! To qualify and win an extra gift please visit and leave a word of congratulations there for my family! (Same rule applies)

  19. WOOT!! Congratulations!!! How exciting! And how wonderful for us. I know this next year will be awesome, too!

  20. What a great ministry to help others in need, kind of like Samaritan's Purse? I read Franklin Graham's autobiography, "Rebel With a Cause" and really liked it. There was a lot about this ministry that he started and I loved the "God Room" principle. If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it.

    Congrats on your SITS day!


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
