As Gray and I get ready for the day I think about all those people who don’t have a warm bed, hot meal, running water, or clean clothes because of hurricane Harvey. I can’t imagine having my home and life turned upside down from a natural disaster, nevermind losing loved ones over something we have no control over. It is absolutely heartbreaking – my thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.
Unfortunately, sometimes it takes a natural disaster or any disaster to remind us of all the little things that matter and those who have been kind to us in our lives. I need to do a better job remembering the help I’ve received in my life from kind people.
Thank you to all the people who are contributing to all those affected; if it be financially, physically or even mentally by praying and keeping them in your thoughts.
When we moved to America many years ago a wonderful immigration support group gave us bags of toys and clothes to rummage through. I remember being a little girl digging through these bags with excitement and happiness over all the toys I could choose from. Gray`s daycare is collecting care kits to send to those affected by Harvey and I`ve gathered supplies to contribute. This is my paying it forward because those people all those years ago were kind enough to donate toys and clothes to those in need which at the time was my family and I. So thank you, even if I can’t pinpoint the exact people, for your contributions; because of you, I am grateful for what I have to this day and want to pass the love and care I felt to those in need affected by Harvey. One toothbrush can help one person and if that one person feels the care being sent their way then they will help someone in need and hopefully a snowball affect of support and love will follow. Sending love and good thoughts to all those affected.
