Thank you for making a difference in these doggy lives!!!!
Hurricane Sandy has dominated the news for the past few days. Unless you have been cut off you have seen the images. You have heard the stories. You have watched the tears and maybe even shed some of your own. As I write this I am still waiting to hear from Hilary at Feeling Beachie to find out how their house did during the storm. I know that they left their house after securing it and went to stay with relatives but I suspect they are without power and phones and can not communicate as usual. I am sure there are others who I follow that have been affected also but I am not aware of them right now. It makes me sad. It is something that everyone will be touched by somehow. It seems only right that November Comments for a Cause will go toward Hurricane Sandy relief. I have not pinpointed exactly where it will go but it will definitely go toward hurricane recovery relief. YOUR comments count so keep them coming.
I am going to be trying to recover from being out of the loop for a week and get back with you and reading your blogs over the next couple of days. I had a marvelous time with my Mom and totally loved being able to spend time with her. I am blessed.
There are a lot of great places that folks can donate to help out with the aftermath of Sandy. Please be careful of where you donate. There are often scams that crop up during this time. One that I know is worthwhile is UMCOR. They are there from beginning to end. This post also lists some great places and ideas of how you can help if you are looking for a way.
