I just found this on a blog and thought it was EXCELLENT.
Social Media to the rescue.
It is so hard to know what and how to respond in a tragedy.

in My Subjective Life
….love that title, gives some great suggestions.
I am busy making Mother’s Day baskets and that famous CARD BOX is the favorite gift again this year. Some mothers request it year after year.
I am going to give away a

All you have to do is tell me that you went to ONE blog of someone touched by the tornadoes and encouraged them.
If you tell me you visited multiple ones, then I will enter you that many times. You can read my previous post for just a few of the blogs I found. It will not be hard to find them. Feel free to leave names of other blogs in the comments. I would love to visit them.
Sunday I will post about a very special Mom.
There are so many incredible Moms in the blog world. I started to list some and realized I would leave someone out. One that is especially dear to my heart right now is Paige at Paige's Petals. She inspires me daily as she walks through a very hard place.
Being a Mom has been the greatest honor of my life. It is a job I have failed miserably at many times. It’s a job I get a redo on regularly. I laughed at a comment someone left essentially saying they felt like we had perfect relationships. If I have ever given that impression…
x that out.
We argue, get our feelings hurt, get in each others business, give our opinion when no one asked and all the other things you can think of on a regular basis. But as the song says “We ARE FAMILY” and as Woody’s favorite song says, “You’ve Got a Friend in ME”
We have each others back, no matter what, and that’s the way it should be. We are a soft and safe place to land. I really would pick my adult kids as my friends and that’s a good place to be.
This is a year that I have needed them more than ever. This week marks seven months since their Dad (and my husband) had a stroke. Today he is out in the back yard playing “golf” with Woody. Earlier today he was out delivering baskets, going to the grocery store, picking up the kids from school. Five months ago we had no idea if he would recover 100%. He has and I cannot tell you how much of that is because of the love and encouragement of his kids and “the littles”!
Happy Mother’s Day to all My Blog Friends. You make my Life Richer!
I know it must drive you crazy when I change font colors so often…It’s just me. Sorry
