Please watch this video!
There are so many blogs I have found that show pictures that are almost too much to view. These are just a few I read today.
Breakfast at Tiffany's
A Southern Belles’s Tales the pictures on this blog tell a story of lives destroyed
Leslie at Lamberts Lately
Two Plus One Makes Three
It is so easy to just turn the TV off, look away from the pictures, go on with life as usual, but for some reason this horrible devastation has left me unable to do that.
I want to help. Really I would love to get in the car and drive there and help someone pick up their yard, rock their baby, look for their old pictures.
These people will not know normal for months and years and if I Iook long enough at the pictures, I think never.
I am not sure how, but I am going to do something in the next few days that I know will make a difference for at least one family…If we all did for one…If I think about it any other way, it just becomes overwhelming.
If you read this blog you will see inside the family of the man that gave his life for his family. The Mom posted this a week ago on Easter Sunday…one week ago.
Today I had planned to write about the Royal Wedding, or maybe the NFL lockout, or maybe the antics of a very funny Jack who has been with me for the last 24 hours (that makes for many funny stories), but none of that seems blog worthy when so many people are hurting…so many bloggers that I read weekly have had their lives totally and literally turned upside down. Please do not worry about leaving me a comment. Go to one of these blogs and encourage one of them. I would think that a word of encouragement, a promise to pray, would not be wasted on any of them.
I will be back with a Mothers Day giveaway in a few days.
