spring, devastation, love, inkers, and sniffles

It’s a beautiful spring day today, temperatures around 70 degrees.  The sun is shining.  The sky is blue.  The heat is off and the windows are open.  I am so ready for spring!

Contrast that with the visions of the devastation in Japan.  The disasters there of earthquake, tsunami, and now what looks like an inevitable nuclear meltdown.  How much more can these people take?

My husband is a wonderful, loving, compassionate man.  We were watching scenes of Japan on the news this morning and he asks: “How much are we going to donate?  Those people need the money more than we do.”  I am the luckiest woman in the world to be married to this man.

No, we can’t give as much as we would like to, but we never can regardless of whether I’m working or not.  We don’t have the money to cure all of the worries and hurts in the world.  But we gave from the heart.  Please, give if you can.  There are so many organisations that are sending help that can use your donations.  Or just donate to the Red Cross, who are already there working.

My dear sister-in-law’s kitty, Inkers, died yesterday, just 6 short months after her dog Corky died.  It’s been a really rough year for her.  I wish I could comfort her but what do you say at a time like this?  I wish we weren’t so far away.

I have finally got the cold that Scuba Man has had for almost 2 weeks.  Boo…hiss…  Ah, well, that’s marriage!  We share the good and the bad!  As I said earlier, he’s so generous!

    Hi Shell, I’m sorry to hear about Inkers. It’s tragic what’s happening in Japan but all we can do is pray and keep them in our thoughts.

    Hope you get over your cold soon. 🙂

    Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law losing her little kitty Shell, and so soon after losing her dog.
    The devastation is Japan is heartbreaking and they need all the help they can get; my heart goes out to them, and my prayers. Seeing it makes us count our own blessings.
