"Hearts to YOU!"
It's a Monday..it's winter...things in January seem to be kinda gloomy (no matter what year it is) and the world is trying to deal with the shock of the earthquake in Haiti.
Watching tv to keep up with what is going on is both depressing and uplifting. Depressing because the situation is so overwhelming and we feel so bad for the Haitian people. Uplifting because I saw this morning on CNN where Dr. Sanjay Gupta did brain surgery on a little twelve year old girl upon a US Navy ship...saving her life. And, more people were found alive in the rubble. We'll take whatever good news we can get at this point, but hoping for more.
I'm here in the Nest, warm, safe, with food, clothing, a dr when I need one, and all my favorite possessions near me. I know where my kids are, friends and family too. Despite all the moaning and groaning that goes on in this country....it's still the most wonderful place to live on this planet.....I am feeling both lucky and very grateful.
This weekend, I found these cute little gel hearts at WallyWorld. In the aisle with the Valentine decorations, paper plates, etc. They made me smile. You know that hearts are the universal symbol of love. I've put them on the door to the Nest and you see them here. I even added one to my computer.
So, I'm hoping these hearts make you smile too! A silly gesture, of course,but just my way to 'send out some love' to anyone out there who needs it...that, and a donation to Haiti relief. It's all I know to do. Take care, pat
