It's white, white outside, so I made me some color...
A funky fabric bag
To go with some funky fabric jewelry
Bring on the snow...
Although, with the storm we had a couple days ago,
and the snow swirling around us,
I couldn't help thinking how incredibly fortunate
we are to have a roof over our heads
and every comfort to cater to our every need.
I couldn't help thinking of the many who are without a home,
without warmth, without even food.
Inconceivable, but so real for so many.
Like I said to the Little One,
the least we can do is pray for such people,
pray for their comfort and safety.
But that is not the least we should do.
We all have the capacity to help, and there are
many small ways to do so, both locally and online.
We do food banks and blood donations
(DaddyBoy goes every other month),
and each year instead of doing birthday parties
we sponsor a child in the LittleOne's name,
but I also hope to volunteer at a soup kitchen
with her when she's a little older.
Until then, there are so many other small ways to pitch in.
May the cold not be too cold for anyone...
