I didn't have to look far to find it.
And this teeny lady I wear around my neck.
Created by Wendy Brandes - Blogger, Jeweller to the stars and general Sass Arse.
Sold to help another blogger in need. As Wendy put it: "Janet of Je Ne Sais Quoi suffered a tragic loss when her husband took his own life. Janet has two young children"
Now most people make the sympathetic noises when they hear such a thing. They might even say "He will be in my prayers" or "I'm so sorry for your loss"
But prayers don't pay rent or feed children. Angels don't sort through personal effects and help you list them on ebay to help pay your school fees. They don't support the basics while a bereaved wife goes through the motions and tries to sustain motherhood.
But the support of Wendy's initiative and that of my other soul Sister Wolf did. Wendy And Sis also listed a donations button on their well read blogs and got real folding money into the hands of Janet when it counted.
That is why I am on the side of the Genies. You don't pray to a Genie see. You ask. And the Genie doesn't pray either. She blinks and flicks her ponytail and - if it is possible - you get what you want.
I'm not saying that the Genie can prevent anything bad. But practicing Genie philosophy will make it easier for you to get help with the bad things, and to empower yourself to overcome them. And Being a Genie yourself means asking what you can do to help - when others need it.
So don't pray - Ask. xx
