Devastation

Unless you've been living under a rock and never have your tv or radio on...then you've heard about the devastation in Haiti. I am sick over what has happened to so many lives and how the survivors have been effected. This morning on the news I heard that the death toll has reached approximately 50,000 people. 50,000???!!! Can you even wrap your head around that? I know I'm having a hard time.

The boy's school had a fundraiser today and he was determined to wear the flag colours (as the school suggested) blue and red. He also wanted to donate all the money he had being $5.00 that my grandfather gave to him the other night when we all went out for dinner. Every little bit helps! I was so proud of my boy for thinking of others and not himself. What a difference we can make even by just opening our wallets and donating as little as $1.00. If money is tight (as it is in our house with the boyfriend being jobless for 2 weeks) then at least I can open up my mind and heart and pray alot!

I also wanted to update you and all and let you know that the boyfriend did in fact find another job and his first day was today! I'm patiently (okay not so patiently) waiting for him to walk through the door now and let me know how it went.

I hope you all have a great weekend. Love a little bit harder, hug a little bit tighter and smile often!

That is absolutely horrible what happened in Haiti. My heart really goes out to all of the families. Ryder sounds like he was brought up just right. That's wonderful that he wants to help. You're right, every little bit does help!

You must be doing something right for your boy to think of others before himself... hope the first day at work went well.

Hi!
You may probably be very interested to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually is spent
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per day now.
