Celebrate the Small Things

It's another Friday and time for VikLit's Celebrate the Small Things.

Instead of celebrating, I'm grieving over the fires in California, the 79 twisters that swepted through the United States, the roads that caved in in Maryland, and the terrestrial rains that severely flooded our southern states. God have mercy!

In the right corner of my blog you'll find a banner for the Red Cross. Please donate something. 

I also know that the Region's Banks are taking food, water, and other necessities for the twister victims. 

Please let God search your hearts as what you can do to help our fellow Americans. This could be you or me one day. We could wake up one morning and find we've lost our loved ones, our homes, and everything we've ever worked for.

Hugs and chocolate, all! Happy Shabbats  if you practice!

Shelly

PS I'm working from my iPhone. My internet at home is down. It rained hard this morning with more to come.

  2. There have certainly been a lot of natural disasters, lately. I'm sure people will do what they can to help those affected by them.

    1. Well ...sometimes if violent entertainment can desensitize us then maybe news can, too.

  9. The US has certainly been kicked about by the weather. We hear all about it in Canada and are just horrified by all the disasters.

    1. It is horrifying. Right now, in Florida , the rain continues to come down. The Tampa Bay has so much water, its in houses and cars are floating on the streets. Plus, a parking lot cave in.

      Gotta run. Lightning!

  10. We traveled to Philadelphia and back during the worst part of the storm. It took us five hours to make a two hour trip. There was a good deal of flooding and damage from fallen trees. It felt so good to reach our front door. I hope things are better today in Florida.

  11. Thank God, you arrived safely. And today in Florida, one would never know we had flooding rain and more sink holes.

I'm dying to know what you think.
