We Are the World BlogFest (#WATWB) celebrates special people and small stories of inspiration and hope in the world. Let’s face it, we need some inspiration and hope during this time of pandemic and social distancing.
This week we celebrate some very special birthdays. My elder daughter’s friends Sam and Mackenzie celebrate their ninth birthdays this week, and my younger daughter, Georgina, is seven on Saturday. She is very excited about her birthday, and while we couldn’t arrange a big party like we normally would, we have managed to plan a small tea party at home and a day trip to one of her favourite places, the Blue Planet Aquarium. Despite it being a rather low-key birthday this year, I have still been running around like crazy as I prepare her celebrations. I have bought birthday cards and gifts, wrapped the gifts, organised gifts from family members, baked birthday cake and cookies, stocked up on her favourite party snacks, and sourced balloons in her favourite colour. She has asked me to wear a dress on her birthday, instead of my usual jeans, which I think is rather cute. We are planning a special Mummy-Daughter-Daughter day out. Precious memories just waiting to be made! Happy Birthday, children. You are all amazing.
We are the World BlogFest (#WATWB) focuses on positive stories no matter where they’re found. It is all about spreading peace and humanity on social media. All participants post on the last Friday of the month, sharing a positive news story that contributes to making our world a happier, safer, and better place to live.
