The Gulf Coast of Texas in the Spring of 2017
I wanted to say that our family, friends, in fact everyone I know, are thinking of all those in Texas who are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and we are keeping you very much in our thoughts and prayers.
I have also watched the many heroes who are appearing. It does the heart good after all the negative stories lately, to see all the goodness when these disasters happen. As Mrs. Rogers mentioned to her son, look for the helpers, there will always be the helpers. In my humble opinion, this is a large part of what this country is all about, helping each other in their greatest time of need, which also extends to our four legged friends and other critters too.
There have been countless numbers of people who don't look at a person to see what ethnicity they are, religion, orientation, anyone who is judged by their differences, they just see a person who needs help. And when you look around the world and see other terrible things happening, you'll also find the helpers. Mr. Rogers' mom was a smart, sweet lady who brought comfort to her child. Yes there is a lot of bad stuff going on, but there is also a whole lot of love out there, we have to remember that.
Please forgive me if this is not what I usually write about. I try to keep this place a happy one for people to visit, but I woke up this morning feeling the need to say something. I will be reading this in the years ahead, and I'll want to be reminded of the goodness in the world, instead of what everyone else is telling us. Yes, I know a lot of bad stuff can happen too, I don't have my head in the sand. Pollyanna that I am, I will always be living in hope and looking to the helpers and there are many, many, many. Blessings to all our Texas friends.
