He’s My Brother

I’ve been following, along with the rest of the world, all day yesterday and today the news on the effects of the  earthquake in Japan and the countries in the Pacific .  My heart and prayers are going out to all involved in this disaster.  Best wishes and tears have their place, but I believe that a donation of any amount that comes from the heart is needed and will be put to good service.   We have to just stop where we are and make a donation for relief , now, not later. We do something, lest we do nothing.  A little or alot, that does not matter, so many of us are planning to enjoy  a lovely day, like I am, I have a hairdresser appointment, then I’m going to see some  friends and go to dinner,   knowing I’ll be  sleeping  in a nice cozy bed tonight …….hey, how lucky can we get?
