4/december - angel in the swamp (30 days of thankful - day 06)

Tonight there is a sneaky little mouse in my room, or more specifically my chest of drawers, making a racket and practically begging me to set a mouse trap. But I hate mouse traps. They are so cruel and even though mum says they are quick and painless, one night while I was laying in bed I heard the mouse trap go off and I heard the poor mouse jumping around in pain and squealing. I will never be able to go through with another mouse trap again. I have seen him twice tonight and I just know that he is going to keep me awake when I try to catch some sleep. I wish that I was a meaner person.

30 Days of Thankful Day 05 - I am thankful for Kids Helpline
Although I have never been in a situation where I have had to call kids helpline, or any helpline for that matter, I know how important these helplines are to people all over the world. The people who work for these helplines are so well trained and can think so quickly. Personally, I don't think I would be able to work under the pressure, but somehow they manage. Each and every helpline worker deserves a medal - they do amazing work and potentially save lives. I have the number saved in my phone just in case I ever need it.
